Re: GPS for the car
I bought one for the future mrs. doe for xmas and recently picked one up for myself. Both units are the same as yours - the Garmin c330. She is a real estate agent and is always going to unfamiliar addresses.
I tried the "tomtom one", but was not at all crazy about it - the only benefit is that it fits in your pocket. in Europe, if you have a bluetooth phone, you can get traffic and police info for an added fee, but not here in the US (yet). Also, the "Points of Interest" (POIs) were far superior in the Garmin
As a working musician, i can't afford to get lost and i don't always know exactly where i'm going. This tool is invaluable, especially in New jersey. I can never get my car pointed in the right direction there! We took it down to Miami and turned it on and it found us and got us where we needed to go very handily!
It's great to be able to find restaurants and gas stations, as well as knowing (approximately) when you'll arrive at your destination. Everybody should have one...and i think that soon, everybody will.
