I was here a posted a lot in my first week or so. Then we went on 2 trips: one by air and one by land.
The first trip was to NYC and though I brought my Nuvi along and carried it each day, I didn't get lost. New Yorkers are very helpful to us lost tourists and at most, if turned around in the canyons of Manhattan, I needed an occasional point in the right direction.
We were home for exactly 12 hours which was occupied by sleeping, laundry and repacking.
Our second trip was a road trip from Northern California to Long Beach. Our Nuvi never missed a beat. One reason I had wanted it in the first place was to minimize my husband's miscues and consequent expletives while driving the LA freeways. The Nuvi worked like a charm. We never missed a beat. We had no wrong turns and an on time arrival.
My husband declared our new GPS "worth its weight in unicorn dung" which for him is highest praise. For me, the less stressful trip was worth every penny we paid for it.
It is good to have you back safely, I moved this thread to the travel stories area of the forums, all the other stories were lonely.
You are even more helpful than my Nuvi!
Good that you had a great trip. Can't wait for the wife and I to travel together so I can prove to her that it was worth the money that I spent.
Now that is sad when you have to prove something to your love one and it was your own money that you spent, oh well.
A GPS certainly does make a trip less streeful. I recently drove from Wisconsin to Florida and many points in between. I did not even take a map along. We also drove around Southern California in March and the Garmin was flawless.
I demonstrated my c530 to a friend and he said, "WOW, this is a marriage saver". LOL He went out and bought his own.
Thanks Asianfire. Maybe sad, but at least it is a sure thing. Sooner or later something will happen that will make the value undeniably clear.
At least my husband already knew what GPS is and what it can do. I still think he was amazed that the street navigator worked so well. I know he was impressed with the TTS and just how well the unit worked in general. I had already sold him on SirfStar III so I had a proverbial leg up on his seeing the value in it.
By the way, we saw our best accuracy to date on this trip (at least when we checked) and that was 11 ft.
11 ft is good, is that with or without WAAS?
Well, your husband, being a man (I guess he is), already has it programmed in him to like 'gadgets'. So you had a leg up on me in convincing him it is a valuable piece of equipment to have...rofl.
