With new technology comes new dilemas.

Many of us have heard about someone using heir GPS being told to drive into a pond, or onto a road that doesn't exist, but what about a virtual glitch that causes an invasion?

Last week Nicaragua accidentally invaded Costa Rica due to Google maps representation of the border lines being wrong.

The image below supplied by SearchEngineLand shows the difference.

While most that have used Google maps before for a road trip know enough not to trust them explicitly, it seems Nicaragua has learned the hard way!
