Excerpt: Garmin is a company located on 151st street, in Olathe Kansas. It stands as a shrine, overlooking a small shopping area, housing a Price Chopper and Knit-Wit Yarn Shop, among other stores. In Kansas City we are proud of Garmin . My Garmin Nuvi 300 was purchased just before my dad became gravely ill. He lived at the Lake of the Ozarks, near Osage Beach, Missouri. It was purchased at one of 2 Wal-Marts.
Excerpt: I am not exactly a fan of Sat Navs. I am my father's daughter and he firmly believes in 'following his nose' or if the worst comes to the worse, look at a map! I am the same! I had just about got my head round online route planners and then my husband declared he wanted to get a sat nav. He had just got a new job and it involved quite a bit of travelling so he wanted a sat nav for a bit of extra security when trying to find his destination!

Excerpt: I’ve been borrowing my friends Tom Tom recently for long trips and found it so good that I decided to purchase my own Sat Nav.

I don’t tend to speed (Much!
Excerpt: "I bought this as a last minute item for £149 on my way to see relatives. The traffic and weather were both horrendous and I couldn't imagine trying to follow my routeplanner printout!! I got it out the box, plugged it in, attached it to the bracket and away I went. The display was easy to read, the voice was clear and 90 minutes later I arrived. I think what sold it to me was the fact that once charged you could use it for up to 8 hours ...
Excerpt: "Purchasing the Garmin Nuvi..... I bought this unit for my girlfriend as a present sometime back in the hope that it would help her find the exit out of that proverbial paper bag.

Based on my previous experience in using handheld GPS units ...
