re-sets all the time, now doesn't work at all

9 August 2010
  • Summary: This is our first GPS, so we're thrilled with the assistance it provides in the car (we moved to a different city a year ago, and got lost a lot) - that it gives us directions, re-calculates when we make a wrong turn, and searches for points-of-interests nearby.
