I got my son a Tom-Tom for his birthday (which is today) and he is thrilled. He really likes all the women's voices and has been alternating between them. Which one have you settled on, BT? (I also ordered one for the hubby but it didn't arrive in time for Christmas.) Santa brought me a fabulous set of fuzzy, fleece sheets. I've never seen them before but they feel fabulous!

Oh, man, BT! You gotta get outta the office more. Yep, you can select what type of voice you want directing you to your chosen destination. They have men's and women's voices with American (no Joisey, tho) or British accents and with different timbres. It's kinda fun because the sound is quite good and some of the voices are downright seductive. Play with it when you get a chance. (I would suggest that you read the manual but I know that would just make you laugh!)

I know - it may be tough for you initially. Imagine our surprise when there wasn't one twang to be heard!

Actually, I'm sure you can find a "Joisey" voice! You can go online and download voices. You can even use your own voice. Not sure I would want to hear my own voice telling me where to go!

The kids got me a money clip that says "#1 Dad" and they made a couple of cards for me as well. Pretty cool, but they forgot the money to go with the clip! LOL.
