Garmin GPS On Sale: Best Price

Click here to BUY the Garmin GPS with Traffic

I bought a GPS two years ago and was happy that finally, I would never get lost again. At least, that was the idea behind the purchase. Unfortunately, things don't always work out as you hope they would. I still got lost, but now I also became frustrated. Not only could I not get to the place where I was supposed to be going but this GPS had me going in circles continuously and when you're in a foreign part of the country, the last thing you need is to be going around and around and getting nowhere.

I know this has happened to many of you because I just can't be the only fool to get fooled by this machine. Everyone I talked to told me I should have got a Garmin. What the heck is the difference? A GPS is a GPS - is it not? It's sole purpose in life is to lead me to my final destination in the fastest time and shortest route possible. Nobody told me that it was going to take me through farmers fields and muddy old backroads to always end up stopping somewhere and asking for directions. Here I am with a GPS that's totally lost and useless in the middle of nowhere and I'm up the creek without even a map. Who needs a map? I have a GPS. This is the 21st century - high tech era. I'm going to scream. With gas prices the way they are, I can't afford to keep getting lost. What's a guy to do? I'll tell you what. Get a Garmin. Just give in to all your friends jabs and just ..get..a..Garmin.

O.K. I have my Garmin and let me tell you a little secret. Be sure to keep this to yourself and tell absoulutely no one. ... I haven't got lost yet ... don't get to travel in circles anymore and I haven't come across any farmers fields lately. Also, --map -- who needs a map? Who even needs a car phone? I arrive everywhere now exactly where and when I'm supposed to arrive and I ... sshhhh -- I'm not afraid to get in the car anymore. Thank you Garmin. You're my new best friend.

Todays GPS technology is far superior to what it was years ago and I never leave home without my best friend - Garmin. The new Garmin nüvi 1390/1390T 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic leads me around traffic jams and detours. Without "Garmin", I'd be living back in the dark ages.

Hmmm, I don't have a gps and never get lost. I do use a map and google maps to preplot my destination. GPSes even new ones can be wrong by 50 Meters, and more if you are in a big city, the signals bounce off big buildings. If you using a GPS get a map too...Maps have been used for 1000's of years...they work. GPSes are good, just not fool proof. Voting up!

You're just one of the lucky ones that happens to have a built in GPS in your head. I used to navigate with maps way back in the 60's until I got a GPS - -threw the map out the window, along with my diamond ring. How bad a day was that?

We constantly hear from our friends how they get lost all the time with their GPS products. Just last week, one of our new clients to our cat hotel at www.thepussycathotel.com, got lost. He didn't have a GPS or a map but he did have a cell phone. One hour later, he arrives here at our door, all frustrated after three calls to us. He only arrived here because Judy had to go and find him and he was less that 2kms from our front door all that time.

His wife asked us if we had a box that she could put him in for the drive home. Must have been lots of arguing going on. Another marriage down the drain.

Good to know there's people out there that are born with GPS technology.
