Computer car navigator all wet

POTSDAM, Germany (AP) - A German couple out for a Christmas drive ended up in a
river, apparently because their luxury car's computer forgot to mention they
had to wait for a ferry. The driver and his passenger were not injured in the
accident, police said Saturday. Several companies sell computer navigators,
some which are attached to dashboards and serve as electronic road maps. Some
offer traffic updates and Internet connections. The German couple was driving
Friday night when they came to a ferry crossing at the Havel River in Caputh.
That information was never stored in the satellite-steered navigation system
they were using. The driver kept going straight in the dark, expecting a
bridge, and ended up in the water. See full story
