Today I took a deep breath and bought myself a GPS.   This evening I installed it, charged it  and tried to read and understand all the instructions. Tomorrow I'm going to set it

Nancy:  Glad it worked out great for you!!!

I don't have one, but one of my sons does and he uses it all the time.  Likes it very much.  My other son wants no part of one.  Likes to read maps.  My husband used to do most of the driving and he always read maps, but now he can't drive, so I have to do the driving.  I don't really go that far though.

Hi Wa-Ha K,I used to use aTHOMAS BROTHERS  guide(in San Diego,,Calif.cALIF.) or a AAA trip tick( nationwide) to determine routes to new places; hubby
 uses mapquest( w/me as map reader/navigator...Our younger son has a GPS w/a very British accent.He & his wife love it,Wink but hubby's
hearing  loss makes dealing w/ the British accent something to avoid;he'd rather deal w/ me Innocentunless "someone" gives him a GPS as a gift Wink LaughingIn Response to Re: Driving with a GPS:
My son in law got one for my daughter last year. She used it a few times but, it doesn't work great out in the country. Also, there is so much construction around here with detours, it doesn't recognize them. She had to subscribe to a service for it and it had to have updates downloaded regularly for new roads, streets, one ways, etc. I like to just look up stuff on Google before we head out. I get pictures of buildings, etc. near turns and it really helps.

Do not post  your home address in a GPS - instead post the address of a nearby store or mall.  You know where you live - if a GPS is stolen the thief doesn't need to know.
