GPS Good for More Than Just Trail Directions

Auto driver & bicyclist altercations are inevitable
when riding on the roads.
Whenever I ride my bike on the trails, I take my GPS to record information for trail guides. It turns out that it may come in handy for insurance purposes also.

To read a fun story about a bicyclist from Denver whose GPS came in handy after a car-bike collision, click on this link. It turns out a motorist rammed into this guy who was out on a training ride on his bike. Then she (the car driver) tried to lie to the police about it. Fortunately, the bike rider had his GPS running, & it corroborated his version of the story. For him, it turned out to be a happy ending since her insurance company ended up paying for his damages.
