2000 PND Owners In Jordan

I was in Jordan last week on business and read an article in the local paper that said they now estimate there are 2000 people who own a PND.

The article went on to give the typical PND versus cell phone navigation pro/con debate.

Makes you realize how blessed we are as a country and makes me realize how blessed I am personally (I have two PNDs plus my cell phone!).
