Garmin Portable GPS

Landing at Logan International BEFORE Garmin nüvi 350 Pocket Vehicle GPS Navigator with Maps for North America: Land at 9 pm ET, find way to rental car, get in rental car, ask rental car attendant for directions to Mass Pike West. Make the first turn correctly. Miss the second one. End up on who knows which freeway but definitely not the Mass Pike.

In the dark, in the rain. Apparently street lights are illegal in MA.

Several miles and many tears later, pull into gas station to find out what was already known – this was the wrong direction. Get correct directions from gas station attendant, hoping this was not the MA equivalent of the Tenderloin, try to memorize them, and get back on the road.

Pray I don’t miss the turn this time.

Landing at Logan International AFTER Garmin nüvi 350 Pocket Vehicle GPS Navigator with Maps for North America: Land at 9 pm ET, find way to rental car, get in rental car, snap Garmin onto the windshield. A nice Australian accented female voice tells me to make a left, then a right, then the first left. Mass Pike West entrance is successful.

Drive through Mass Pike, only to find it consists of miles of tunnels. Garmin satelite doesn’t do tunnels.

Ah oh.

Just before entering tunnel # 2 Garmin reconnects to satelite and announces a turn was missed. She recalculates. She suggests the next viable option. Hop right on it. 45 mintes later I arrive at my destination. No tears, no panic, and only one easily recoverable missed turn.

If you are wondering if Garmin nüvi 350 Pocket Vehicle GPS Navigator with Maps for North America is worth it’s $366.99 sticker price, just ask my husband. He will tell you it is worth every penny:-)
