One of the reviews was pretty funny. A newlywed couple were driving around the country going to a bunch of major league ballparks for their honeymoon. They got the gps just in time for their trip. The husband was sure the marrage would have been a short one had it not been for the gps as a lot of the parks were difficult to find, but his wife never had to ask him to stop for directions once.

We have a Garmin Sport Trac. We can move it from vehicle to vehicle or take it on the boats. We also have Streets & Trips that works with a GPS & a laptop so you can get your route and the GPS will track your progress. I can also use the Streets & Trips for Pocket PC on my cell phone.

The laptop the company provided Bob died and we are hoping to get a new one very soon - he really liked that setup. We have the map CD so we can load the nav. charts for when we're on the water.

we have a Navigon transonic, that is a handheld type GPS... you need that with four cars, and, btw, it'S cheaper...
But most important: look at it!
On our trip last week Frank missed teh way twice, first he stopped the Navigation ("We know the way to Stuttgart..") and missed the highway junction.. until I realized he didn't want to turn right it was too late..
and on the way back he was just dreaming....

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
