  1. As long as you get one....I love my 5 inch Garmin....the eyes aren't what they use to be(if you know what I mean) LOL!!Denbise, you have to remember how far your windshield is away from your sitting position....so bigger ther screen, the better!! Just my 2cents worth!!

  3. They both have different features. Compare the features and see what one has the features you'd like best. For us I love having one that tells the speed limit and how fast we're going. There are dozens of different models and they all have different features. Another I really like is the lane assist. You know about 2 miles in advance what lane to get in for the direction you're heading. We have an older Magellan and a newer Garmin. We're in the market for another one since we ended up with another Jeep.

  4. Haven't used a GPS here in Canada since coming back. I have one in a drawer somewhere. I preferred to not even look at it though, and only listen to the verbal cues. Easier to pay attention to what's going on out front.
    Your 'post it on the steering wheel' arrangement has been working so far, are you feeling pressured?

  6. Our's is a Tom Tom, cheaper than those. The trick is you need to know when to use them. Never, ever, use it for navigating to a place far, far away. Use them when you are in a city or getting close to where you need to be.

  7. I couldn't be full-timing without a GPS. One of the good things is that it talks to you and tells you where to turn, etc., so you don't have to take your eyes off the road. I think they are a really good safety item. Plus I have absolutely NO sense of direction and would be constantly lost without my GPS. If you get one you'll wonder how you got by without it. I just have a cheap Garmin, but would love the new expensive one for RVing. Even so, even the cheapest ones work and will get you where you're going.

    How scary to be sent into the office at the border!

  8. I found it interesting that in the buying guide they mostly used pictures from Garmins. I set mine before leaving and don't touch it when on the road. If I need to change something, I park first. I didn't like them showing the guy pushing the screen while driving. And I do use mine for long distance trips because they help so much with changing from one highway to another. I really like Lane Assist. My Garmin tells me how far to the next "event" and what I should be looking for--exit number and/or street name. If I'm in a metro area where some lanes are going to split off it shows me what lane I need to be in. Very valuable information. If I'm just passing through a metro area I usually get in the lane that has most of the semi-trucks until my Garmin indicates otherwise. :)
