Nav. - GPS - Info needed.

Postby Zappy » Mon Nov 26, 2007 5:02 pm

Ok gang, I'm sure some of you have or know about these thingys. I saw an info mercial on the GARMIN about a month ago, sounded cool. Now I see the TOM - TOM quite a bit.

Zappy wants Santa to bring one. I don't need the "ROLLS ROYCE" but I don't want the "Pinto" either. I do want it portable - and I want it to talk.
And it MUST be easy to use.

What kind do you have - what features are a "MUST HAVE" - do you like your's ???

Any info will help, Thanks folks.

Cool. The Tom Tom (version 3) just got an excellent review in a paper I was reading. That impressed me enough to ask Mrs. Santa for one! :lol: bp

Zappy,
Don't think you can go wrong with either Garman or Tom Tom.
And you already know how to find Eddyville without it. LOL

Yer right Al, as long as I can find EDDYVILLE, I'm set for '08.

Jim, thanks for the maps, I was getting tired of trying to find those BURMA SHAVE signs.

Hi Zappy. I have/ use the Garmin 350 and like it a lot. It small enough to carry in your pocket and I transfer it between the Tahoe and Vette as needed. Here a link to do some comparing. Have look here. 8)
