I've been thinking about buying a GPS for a while.
I do a bit of travelling with my job and I MapQuest where I have to go and print off the directions. Gord travels a lot to fencing tournaments and uses MapQuest too.
It seems like all the cool kids these days have a GPS.
I decided yesterday that I wanted one ... I had to have one!
I stopped in at Best Buy this afternoon and talked to the sales guy about them. He recommended the Garmin nüvi 255W. I've heard of TomTom but apparently Garmin is the world leader.
The nüvi 255W are on sale there for $130 ... but were sold out. I stopped in at Future Shop and they had them ... but they were $140. Future Shop matches all their competitors' prices PLUS gives 10% off. Sweet!
Needless to say, I bought one!
I have to go to Burlington tomorrow so I can't wait to use it!
September 1 Update: It was fun to drive to Burlington (about 60km each way) today using the GPS! I let British Serena and then Australian Lee lead me at first ... but they couldn't pronounce Gardiner Expressway properly and that was weird. I found that American Jack was the best.
