Bit of a generalization don't you think? Sounds like the old adage that men don't listen to directions.

Personally I'm on the road ALOT between new clients, old clients, job sites, vendors, and the like. Sitting down in the morning and trying to figure out a route with an out of date atlas for six or seven appointments is not an acceptable alternate to being able to plug in an address to the system and have a guide to my next destination. I'm not late, I'm not lost. What happens when you have to throw in that surprise destination or *gasp* you get lost..... pull out the atlas? You want to talk distractions......
