An American tourist is cursing his GPS after it sent him 6 hours in the wrong direction.

Noel Santillan, a 28-year-old from the United States, was in Iceland on business.

He typed the wrong address into his hire car’s GPS and ended up taking a six-hour diversion to the fishing village of Siglufjordur in the north of Iceland.

The mistake came when he typed the word Laugarvegur – with an extra “r” – instead of Laugavegur, one of the main roads in the capital Reykjavik.

After driving for some time in poor road conditions, he thought something was amiss, but ploughed on regardless.

On arrival in Siglufjordur, a local woman broke the news that he was hundreds of miles from his intended destination and found him a room in a local hotel.
