Swedish couple misses isle after GPS blunder

ROME - Two Swedes expecting golden beaches of Italian island of Capri got shock when tourist officials told them they were 650 km off course in northern town of Carpi, after mistyping name in their GPS."It's hard to understand how they managed it.

middle-aged couple, who were not identified, only discovered their error when they asked staff in the local tourist office Saturday how to drive to island's famous "Blue Grotto."

"They were surprised, but not angry," Medici said. "They got back in car and started driving south."

Carpi is busy industrial town in province of Emilia Romagna, at other end of Italy.
