Hey guys. I'm a new driver, and with only a few months of driving experience in my life, I tend to be extremely reliant on GPS. This is a problem, especially when driving alone (I only recently figured that one out!).
I want to try to establish a sense of direction as to where I am. I have the basic directions of my town memorized (mostly only because I would go running and then remember the routes through running), but when I try to memorize a new route before driving I get confused.
For all those experienced drivers and experienced mnemonic(ists), what's important to remember when it comes to driving. I'm sure I could memorize rights and lefts through binary encoding, but should I be aiming for the memorization of street names or what? How do you memorize location via the method of loci?
