We've considered getting a GPS for about a year now. When some new responsibilities came my way, I told Craig that we had to get one--I refuse to get lost in this crazy New England city more than I already do.
Today was the first big test. I needed to drive to the cannery, but had to stop at the Salvation Army to clear out the back of the van first. When I got to the SA they informed us that they don't take donations there--you have to find a drop off spot. So, I searched my Points of Interest in the GPS, found the nearest Good Will, called them (number provided by GPS) and rerouted my trip.
After our cannery stop we wanted to grab something quick to eat on the way home. Again, I used my POI and found something right around the corner--which I never knew was there. Success!
No weird turns, no latency, no problems. Just easy directions. I wish I had done this two years ago when we moved here.
