Do You Know About GPS Navigation Systems? If So, HELP!
For our Cross-USA trip, I have decided that we absolutely need a GPS navigation system. As I know nothing about these systems, I am calling out for your help on deciding which to buy! Here are some things I need to consider:
- I live in Canada so I need to be able to either (a) purchase the product locally or (b) purchase it online from a retailer that will not charge me hundreds of dollars in customs duty.
- I want a system that I can purchase USA maps for (do you purchase the maps?! Download them?!)
- I want a system that talks to me… I’m thinking something like, “Turn left at stop sign ahead.”
I have looked at Futureshop and they have TomToms, Pioneer systems, Escorts, Garmins, LGs… *sigh* Stores should have ONE choice for EVERY product. Yes, that would be boring but it would make my decisions easier!
So, where are my techno-geeks? Generally, that is what I am but since this falls out of my general geeky knowledge base, I need your help. Let me know if you use a GPS currently and what you like about it. Also, tell me which GPS systems I should steer clear of.
PS - If you own a GPS Navigation System company and want to send me one for free, I’ll review it on the blog… I promise… :) Email me and I’ll give you my physical mailing address. (What? Are you reading this and think it’s shameless? It is!)
