I had to take a bit of a road trip on Monday, which meant I listened to some of the FROSTBORN audiobooks while I did that.
However! Most of the road trip took place in a crowded urban area with a badly designed road system, so I needed to rely on my GPS to find my way around the place. One of the miracles of modern technology is that I can run both my audiobook app and my GPS app on my phone, which I can then plug into my car so it plays over the speakers.
That said, using both the audiobook app and the GPS app at the same time can cause unintentional hilarity, because the GPS app takes precedence over the audiobook app and will cut in when it comes time to give directions.
Audiobook: “This is what we’re going to do,” said Ridmark. “We…”
GPS: In 500 feet, turn left onto 5th Avenue West.
Me (irritated): Ridmark is talking! Stop interrupting!
(a brief pause)
Me: Huh. I really did need to turn left onto 5th Avenue West.
GPS: Make a U-Turn.
So I can attest that you can listen to audiobooks and the GPS at the same time, but the GPS really does need to take priority. 🙂
