    Unfortunately while the Tom Tom will get you there eventually sometimes the routes can be a bit round a bout with his "short Cuts"

    Actually my Hiram Hiram is pretty reliable . . . but it costs me a fortune to run it since it runs on beer and beef jerky.

    Default Nuvi's

    I'm guessing I've used my Nuvi to get me "in the neighborhood" of over 1000 caches. Most of the time Di and I wonder how we ever got by without it, but....it occassionally has numb spells.

    We were headed to a cache in Portland, Lowe Down and Out, GC1J76T. The closest road to this cache as the crow flies is the Maine Turnpike. When we went by Verillo's Conference center adjacent to the old Exit 8, the nuvi decided it was time for an "adventure." (Remember, Di and I both know where Loew's is but we try to "trust" our navigational aides."

    The Nuvi made us take a bypass and then get on the Turnpike headed North!. Then off at an Exit and then back South on the Turnpike. When we got opposite the cache, the nuvi said turn right! Right? There's a Guardrail here and no exit!

    So we get off and it starts "re-caclculating" gets us back to where this side trip started and wants us to go around one more time, after all, the price of fuel is "cheap" now.

    So we shut Hal the Nuvi off, went to Loew's and quickly found the cache.

    And if you don't think there's a "bridge to nowhere" in Maine, eventually your Nuvi will take you down a camp road to a lake and you'll find the cache is straight across the lake on a different shore! Been there, done that too!

    Gotta love all this technology!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Haven't seen that yet.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I got a kick outta this - our Nuvi is named "Bea" (we'll leave to your imagination why she got that name...)

    Does anyone else have a "name" for their car navigational aide?

    I have named my Nuvi Julie. Like Dubord mine likes to "recalculate" on occasion. It was on such an occasion that I was not paying any attention to speed and there he was blue lights and everything! I pulled over and he asked my hurry and I explained I was listening to Julie recalculate and paying no attention to my speed,he chuckled and gave me a warning and told me to listen to my Julie!!

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
