I’m pretty bad with getting around even relatively close to my house, so I went ahead and bought a Garmin Nuvi 350 from Amazon.
I just got it in the mail today! I took it on a test drive today on a VERY short route to work that I know very well (Only about 5 minutes from my house,) but I already like my shiny new tech toy. The route it wanted me to take at first was not what I normally used, but I took the first turn my way and it automatically updated in seconds to my normal route. It even has the ‘text-to-speech’ feature, so it actually says street names and stuff instead of just ‘Turn left in 200 feet.’)
My only concern is that GPS units make cars a lot more likely to be broken into. I’ve done some research though, and I’m going to make sure that I always hide it in my glovebox when I park, as well as eliminating all signs of the windshield mount.
Anyway, just wanted to share the news about my new stuff!
