Another way in which I am an atypical guy is that I've never had problems asking directions. What I have problems with is feeling lost. I hate that feeling passionately. So asking someone for directions, to make that feeling go away, is a small thing.
Definitely had that feeling on our trip to the South earlier this year. Trying to find a location in Kentucky, my dear wife and I traveled some narrow, remote roads that had me wishing I'd never seen Deliverance. It was a bad feeling. Nice company, pretty scenery, bad feeling.
So thinking ahead, my wife wants to get a GPS, and she says I should ask you, Faithful Readers, if you have any experiences to relate.
The one that looks best so far is the Garmin nuvi 660 GPS Navigation, which gets really terrific user ratings both at Circuit City and Amazon. Also, it's on sale at huge mark-downs.
So, your thoughts?
