BBC NEWS | Europe | Swedes miss Capri after GPS gaffe: “A Swedish couple in search of the isle of Capri drove to Carpi, an industrial town in northern Italy, because they misspelt the name in their car’s GPS.

Italian officials say the couple asked at Carpi’s tourist office where they could find Capri’s famous Blue Grotto.

The car’s sat nav system had sent them 650km (400 miles) off course to Carpi.

‘Capri is an island. They did not even wonder why they didn’t cross any bridge or take any boat,’ said a bemused tourism official in Carpi.

Once they realised their mistake, the couple got back in their car and headed south, the official added.”
