renting a car in the twilight zone

1. It's keyless. You press a button. I had known of this form of transport, but I had never operated it before. It's disconcerting.

2. It has GPS. I have generally avoided this, as I find a moving image on a brightly-lit screen near my face to be really distracting while driving. However, this one did tell me where in the airport's environs the rental lot was, which enabled me to figure out how to get out of there, and for that I am grateful.

However, it does not believe in the existence of the not-small, not-new street my hotel is on. Driving down this road while the GPS claimed I was crossing empty fields cross-country was likewise disconcerting. I turned it off.
