    We went on a road trip about 2 hours away yesterday. We get lost frequently but we just got a TomTom GPS and we tried it out! Well it lead us to the middle if nowhere!! :angry: Luckily I had the woman's number and she guided us back to her place...after 3 phone calls! And the correct address was plugged in the dumb thing!
    Curse electronical devices!
    Very odd...

    Sorry, just had to share my frustration with electronical devices... :help: :help:

    We bought a Nuvi, supposed to be the top rated GPS. Ya right :slapfloor: I turn the thing on a mile away from home put our address in and it tells us to go to our neighbors. It may have been because the county changed our address but I highly doubt it. It's taken us to the wrong place one other time. Thank goodness I have GPS on my phone too.

    well if she lives out in the boonies then the GPS may not do so well. They are better for highway and city then out in the country.

    Also you may want to update the maps on it by hooking it up to yoru computer and doing as instructed in the user manual.

    Yea...it was odd. We used it before and it was OK...luckily we talked to a guy, turned around, went straight and it took a couple miles and we were there.
    I sure am glad that goat is AMAZING for what we went through!

    At least we were in the same city! And we didn't end up in MI like some of my family did before... :ROFL:
