I gave my three (or four) year-old Tom-Tom GPS to my daughter. She was borrowing it so often that I figured it was time for me to get a new one. I settled on the Garmin nuvi 1450; it is not the top-of-the-line but it has most of what I need to see the USA in my Chevrolet. One feature that I like is the wider screen.
This evening I spent a few hours checking the nuvi out and putting in all of our regular (and contingency) waypoints and destinations. In case you are wondering, I still carry road maps.
I went to the Garmin site to register and download upgrades. Gaak! At DSL speed, it should be done downloading this time tomorrow. I hope the maps extract and install on the nuvi faster than they download.
