Meet My New Best Friend

I have been known to get lost a lot. In fact, I have been known to call my husband when I am on the road to look up directions for me. This was a purchase I should have made a long time ago – for both of our sakes!
We got the Garmin Nuvi at Costco. It is really easy to use, you just punch in the address and it sends you there turn by turn! It tells you when you should expect to arrive as well as how many miles you have to go before you make your next turn.
Plus, it saves a lot of paper as you don’t have to print Google maps or directions.
One warning though, as my friend has gotten me in trouble once before. You can type in the name of a store or location and it will pull up the closest ones. I typed in Wal-Mart one day as we don’t have one that close to us, and I didn’t know where the nearest one was. Well, it pulls up a location in Tustin by The District. Hmmmm, I thought, I don’t remember seeing one over there? Anyhow, I drive all the way there and it turns me into the Sam’s Club parking lot! So, you do have to have SOME idea of where you are going and if something exists. I guess like everyone, my new friend can’t be perfect. Although, she is pretty darn close!
