GPS question

3 posts in this topic

I am going to get my wife a GPS for mothers day. She will only use it for driving, I have been thinking of a TomTom. I want to keep the purchase price around 100. She will want something that is simple to use, and does not have a ton of bells and whistles.

What brand/model would you buy?

I know you said you wanted to keep it around a $100. I have a Garmin NUVI 1200 and love it. Being from the great white north, I can't find a mcdonalds in the cities(not quite that bad but) This garmin talks to you and you don't even have to take your eyes off the road. I love the (in .7 miles turn left hwy 64) Just my .02 cents. Oh and they are $199

I have the Garmin StreetPilot c550, and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. I had a friend who had a TomTom, and he doesn't like it. My SteetPilot was $168.

My StreetPilot has just about everything - Maps, turn by turn directions, BlueTooth for my cell phone, Live Traffic updates, etc. About the only thing I don't like is that is doesn't tell me what elevation I am at, which can be important when you are pulling something at elevation.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
