I just took a trip from Chicago to New Jersey and back. I drove using a Tomtom 2535 LIVE and a Garmin 3790 LMT. Both Units had the latest maps and firmware.
I drove with both units to compare traffic, routes and arrival times. Well I have to tell you up front that I am impress with the TOMTOM HD traffic.
My family and I just returned last night from a road trip to the Wisconsin Dells area. Every time we make a road trip of any significant distance, I think I learn a few more things about traveling. As sort of an experiment, last weekend I bought a Virgin Mobile MiFi prepaid mobile wifi router to see how well that worked for us on the road.
I am just wondering what resources people find to be the most helpful for avoiding construction during road trips. I have a Garmin GPS and a Garminfone with data, but I haven't used it on long road trips to know if it will route around construction.
GPS helped me out on a whirlwind tour of South Korea last week.
I covered most of the country last week. Fortunately, I had a local guide from my work and we took trains or were driven most places, but the GPS helped me get back to the hotel more quickly when I explored on foot a couple of times.

I travel up and down I-95 from Maryland to Philadelphia everyday and started to notice what looks like to me is a sign post that over hangs over the highway. But on the part that is above the road it looks like two sensors of some kind, I also seen some on poles that are straight up and these sensors (dont know what else to call them)are pointing torwards the road. Does anyone know what they are?
We were down in the Laughlin area last month and took a side trip out to Oatman, then over the Sitgreaves Pass on Route 66. While we were going east up the pass, we saw 10 REALLY old motorcycles heading west down the pass.
Where are the best and worst rest areas in North America?
While traveling the Interstate Highways you have stopped in many rest areas, where in your opinion are the cleanest and traveler friendly and where the filthiest and less accessible.
Hi fellow RVers. I'm looking for a good RV park probably in Arizona. Any recomendations? They all look the same on their web sites so it's son hard to tell. I'd sure like to avoid the concreate parking lot type of park, but that may be difficult.
If you have any thoughts, please share.
From AOL. When Starry Rhoads and her husband John followed their navigation system’s directions to take a road through Oregon’s picture-perfect winter wilderness, they never once thought that their lives would be in danger. Marked as a through road by the aftermarket GPS device in their Toyota 4x4, it would eventually peter out to become little more than a rutted country pathway.
Yesterday, I turned over 80,000 miles on the RV. We are fulltimers and started travelling in earnest on 7/3/2007. We have been coast to coast several times and have driven up the Dempster Highway in the NorthWest Territories to Inuvik. We have been down the east coast of Mexaco and around the Yucatan Peninsula and into Belize, then back up through Mexaco City.
What's your plans for today? I'm heading toward Vancouver, BC from Seattle. It's a short less than 2 hours drive and Stanley Park, Canada Place to visit plus super markets for fresh tropical fruits. Will be back on the same day. The weather chill and cold outside.
How about your plans?

We just got back home from a week in Boyne Falls, Michigan. While there we decided to go to the beach at Charlevoix. I had loaded my Garmin with a number of POIs in the area including the Charlevoix light house. Knowing the light house would be close to the beach I set it as the destination and headed out. Charlevoix also happens to be the departure point for the ferry to Beaver Island.
