In Praise of GPS

So, on our recent tour of colleges in the BaltimoreVirginiaWashington, DCNew YorkNew Jersey areas we rented a car from Budget.  One of the options was the Where2 GPS for another $48 for the week.

What a bargain.

On our trip, rather than struggling with paper maps, we used the Garmin StreetPilot C550-based Where2 GPS.  An absolute God-send.  Did I say this was a great deal?  Okay, it didn’t do well with areas where there was a lot of new construction around highway (freeway, and parkway) construction, but who would?

It was easy to use, easily re-routed us if we missed a turn, and always got us where we wanted to be.  Other than some (what I would consider) odd routing, I can’t say enough about it.  Good deal.
