Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Rémi, I cannot believe that we're in such a mess! The GPS has made us go around in circles for an hour! It's even telling us to take roads which don't exist anymore on the road network. - Don't worry, my love! We're going to sort it out! I'm sure that the GPS is just struggling to connect to the satellite. - I am really not convinced (of that), Rémi ! I'd specifically asked you to update the GPS before we left. I even wanted us to buy another one, to be honest! If you'd done it, we would not have ended up in that situation! Now, we'll never arrive on time for our appointment, all that because of this blasted machine which has a mind of its own! - Let me try and restart it, maybe that will fix the problem! Look, it's working! I told you so!
