When navigating using a GPS do you use audio turn-by-turn directions or rely on the onscreen visual indicators?

No - my girlfriend does...
I was gna comment on the 50 50 split... But then saw only two people voted...

If needs be look it properly on my computer first and then if still needs be some last minute check where is this place hidden non existent. Then again, I don't drive... A car, only my laptop with advanced driving skills.

I don't need no electronic gadget to help me, I use common sense and a map.

Visual mostly, so that I know which lane I need to be in before the audio kicks in.

Don't use a GPS - check the map, when going to a new area, mentality map the main roads, and step on the pedal.

I would get up on a soapbox, vigorously wave my finger (groot Krokodil style) and tell you that no one tells me where to go :p

[X]Visual only ... because the voice annoys me.

Don't use a GPS, no one has given me one, and if someone did, it would probably result in my car being broken into, and stolen within a week.
