Many people will be hitting the road in the coming months bound for their summer vacation destination.

If you’re driving, a new study finds you may want to ask the man of the car for directions.

The study in Springer’s journal Memory and Cognition asked men and women to navigate through a computer maze. 

The results showed men are more likely to take shortcuts, getting to their destination faster than women, while women are better at following learned routes.

Women were also found to wander more if taking a new route.
