For the entire 5 years we’ve been on the road we’ve used a GPS navigation system on our laptop to help us find our way. I wrote about this in a previous post, including a short video. This time, we also have a Garmin Nuvi ‘dashtop’ GPS. It is so much more convenient to take with us in the car, and it has a much louder speaker than our laptop. Today was the first time we used *both* the laptop and the smaller ‘dashtop’ unit.
Here’s a picture of the Garmin:
I SO appreciate the big picture! (You can click on this image to see a bigger one.) And, planning your trip on the computer is so much better as well. It seems you need to already know where you’re going before you start programming it into the little one. I know I still have a lot to learn about using the Garmin, but, for RV travels – we’re going to hang on to the laptop with Streets and Trips.
How about you?
