I have a tendency to either get lost or miss turns when I’m driving. Because of this I usually give myself a lot of extra time when going to some place new or that I haven’t been to very often. Printing out directions and bringing them with me helped me somewhat but I usually needed to pull my car over to read the directions.
A few weeks ago I was complaining about getting lost and missing turns and people suggested that I get a GPS. I hadn’t really thought about getting one before because I thought they cost several hundred dollars. After researching the different options I found one for under $150!
I purchased a GPS last Friday night and tested it out over the weekend when I went to a few places I knew how to get to. But the real test came yesterday when I went someplace I’d never been to before. I am amazed at how easy it was to not only get there but also return home from there. It almost seemed too easy!
Now I’m thinking about all the time and phone calls I’m going to save from now on. I’m sure that with gas prices like they are my GPS will end up paying for itself very soon!
