How can I use a GPS when I drive with multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

Some people with multiple sclerosis find it hard to program a GPS system or listen to one announce directions. So, try the old-school method: Write directions down before you get in the car. It can help you remember them and make it easier for you to check them in case you get lost and have to pull over.
