A while back I talked about my car’s ipod player, but I never mentioned my GPS.

I am not good at directions, it’s almost a Ryoga level problem for me. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I go to a place I always make that wrong turn at alberque and become frustrated and late.

That’s why Tom Tom is so awesome. I’m no longer the guy calling every 5 minutes for updated directions. I get in, program and address, and just follow that fraker all the way to my destination.

I’m also pretty proud with how I hooked it up, I’ve attached my palm to the steering wheel so I can see it at a quick glance, a lot like looking at my gauges. it runs on battery power, but when I need to go on longer trips I can plug in a power cord. the cord is stretchy so it goes all the way around while I turn so it’s nice and safe to drive.

Tomorrow the whole gang is driving out to Allen’s to see Weird Al. It feels good to know that I will be able to get to his house first try, I use to be the weak link in those situations.
