this is the crucial point.  it proves beyond any doubt that it is
the fault of the GPS unit and its manufacturer.

same as when you buy a street directory, it's not your responsibility
to pay attention to any road closure or other signs.

and if it doesn't show the cars or pedestrians you hit, it's the
publisher's/manufacturer's fault too...the obstacles weren't shown on
the map.
