Actually, with enough infrastructure in place it could work.
It's accurate over around twenty miles, so you'd need hubs every 20 miles. Each hub contains cassettes with direction to every location within the twenty mile range, including all the neighbouring hubs.
You drive to a hub, get the next hub cassette, drive there, hand it over and get the next, and so on until you reach your target hub and collect the "local destination" cassette.

With enough tapes and trucks to return them to the appropriate hubs, it'd work. Total Genius!

But it's spectacularly inefficient, and a bloody stupid idea! Big Grin | :-D
