Did anyone see the Today show today? It was about GPSrs and how good they are. Of course, their testing methods are much to be desired. Testing in Boston has to be the worse place to test GPSrs.

Have to tell you... I was stunned yesterday afternoon. Decided to let my Zumo determine the fastest way home for me. Left the Washington Navy Yard and was sent down an incredible number of backstreets... told to turn left where there was no left turn allowed... backtracked on a few streets... was told to take a street that didn't even exist where I was at... however, made it home 10 minutes faster than normal!
