Can you be more specific about what kind of unit you're talking about?

Um. I don't really know. I just want something to put in the car to tell me when to turn right and stuff like that. I'm inclined to go with a Garmin something or other (since I use a Garmin eTrex Venture for backpacking and I like it) but have no intimate knowledge of the products offered and by whom. Suggestions/advice appreciated.

I have a Garmin Zumo 550, which is one of their motorcycle-specific units.  You could use it in a car (I have), but it's probably not ideal compared to other units out there.  Garmin is widely regarded as the user-friendliest GPS on the market.  Make sure you think about whether you need an internal battery, as some are not so equipped.

And I think there was just recently a thread on this very subject in the FGI Clubhouse.

 Laugh at you


It's prolly just me, but I don't get those things.  I can't think of any time I would go somewhere, that I don't know how to get there.  (save that one time going to meet Fuzz, but for me, it just doesn't happen that often. Don't Know)

You knew how to get there.....you just took the way less traveled.  Grin
