My husband can't find his way out of our driveaway, so we NEED a GPS. He uses our Garmin everywhere we go.

I will have to check out the garmin - we bought a new car and had a garmin in our old truck. But this new one - it is so confusing and so not user friendly. I despise it! I need my garmin back

Because I don't have a GPS, I use my smartphone and Google maps to help us get around - it helped me drive across Greece this past summer! Would love a GPS too.

Lori Felix said...

I am horrible with directions so having a GPS on hand is always a necessity for me. I'll have to check out that Garmin at Best Buy to upgrade from my current gps.

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

I agree completely. Driving around asking for directions is not cool. We need to take advantage of the technology on our fingertips. Garmin would be the best buddy to have while on the road.

Liz Mays said...

My phone GPS seems to get confused every time I travel to mid-Michigan. It would be nice to have a reliable one.

Gadgets are so important these days and they really make travelling a lot easier, especially if you're going on a roadtrip. We have apps for GPS and maps and we also have apps for hotel locations and for reservations.

I am terrible at directions so a GPS is the perfect gadget for me. Thanksfully my new car has it built in so this has saved me so much hassle.

Kelly Hutchinson said...

When we vacation, we almost always drive. I think a GPS would be a welcome tech gadget in our house.

Stephanie Pass said...

My parents cannot live without their Garmin. It takes them everywhere. I don't think my mom knows how to navigate without it anymore, lol.

Maddi'sMommy said...

I regularly use my phone as a GPS but I know that a GPS is far more reliable if you're going off the grid.

MsCrookedHalo said...

I just purchased my first gps and I love it. Takes the burden off having to use my phone.

Rachel Hirst said...

I use my smartphone and Google maps to help us get from A to B. Although I sometimes end up in a place that was not on my planned route.

Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey said...

Me and my family love road trips and yes GPS always come in handy in every trip we do. It's a good thing that there are apps like this.

Having a GPS is the most important thing for my family. And even with that my spouse will find a way to get lost.
