On a recent trip we took, my parents offered us the use of their newest technology gadget. I must admit, I'm not the Treckie of today that most around me are. I think tivo is one of the neatest things out but I don't have the desire to learn how to use it. Mainly because we really dont watch that much tv unless its game day. Anyway, the gadget is a GPS device that gives you turn by turn directions, along with nearby food, lodging, fuel, attractions, etc. We have had navigation systems in vehicles before, but I was very skeptical because the ones I have used would always seem to get you close, then send you in circles. The one we borrowed was a Mio, but they have Tom-Tom, Magellan, and a few others. We had absolutely no problems with it at all. It even warned us in advance of turns coming up, exits, which lane to be in, and much more. Like I said, being behind the times with most technology, when we arrived at our destination with family and friends, everyone of them already had one! There are apparently about 5 different name brands, but the common theme was you can't be with out one. For those of you that are technologically challenged like myself, they are very easy to use. If youre not already using one, check them out. Plus they are alot less bulky than an atlas and much easier to read while driving. So for me growing up in a small town like Ocala, FL, it is a must for places like Atlanta and Orlando. Maybe by next season Ill be ready to learn about tivo!
