Happy Halloween

We got a new toy! I cashed in my points against an old credit card and redeemed it for a new Garmin Nuvi 255 GPS/Personal Travel Assistant. It's sooo cute! And, Jim already had fun downloading all sorts of extras - like waypoints for Geocaches, and different voices for the turn by turn directions.

Here's how geeks have fun on Halloween:

I like it.... How does it work while in the car? Do you have to put it near a window for it to work? Can I get a female voice on it?

It mounts to the windshield. Yes, there are plenty of female voices.

Thanks, I was married to the same woman for 35yrs so I'm used to taking direction from a female better then a male.........

I checked that unit out on youtube and it looks like I can do a Google map and send it to the Garmin.... I like the idea of planing my own trip and having the GPS to help me keep track of it...
Looks like I'm going to have to go shopping.......
