New GPS

Someone was kind enough to gift me a Garmin Nuvi yesterday. Best part about it is this..



That's right a white jeep icon!


It's off white kinda but it shows up white on the GPS. My second fav is this one.

I actually like this more then the expensive TomTom I bought for my stepdad for fathers day. The Garmin website has a lot of really cool things you can upload onto your Unit like Different voices (3 currently) and tons of different vehicles. For a few bucks you can purchase tour guide data that will give you all the scenic routes for vacationing etc. The USB and car charger has a universal plug so I had a cable laying around the house from another digital cam I can use. I didn't have to buy a USB cable to plug it into the computer because of that which was nice.

They also have direct downloads on the website for GeoChaching. The Standard size one fits in your hand but I'd kinda like to get the wide version which is only 30-40$ more. The Nuvi 205 is discontinued but you can get them for $100-150.

Here is a couple of sites to check out. They have many downloads for your garmin. Check them out you may find something you can use. I think you will like your garmin as I have the 500 and it works great also with the jeep icon.
