GPS Enabled

About damn time.

Now I won't go anywhere. Just watch.

It was already (horrors!) budgeted, what with the house refinance. But we combined it with Father's Day, to make it sound that much more "official".

It's a Garmin nĂ¼vi 350. When first introduced (I presume) it was almost a grand. Was on sale at Best Buy for $279. Damn, it's powerful, and has all the features I wanted. Yes, I checked. Wasn't going to have another camera-like incident.

Went to pick up the CAWS mail yesterday, and found out it's 20.41 miles round-trip. While I usually take a different route home from what it suggested, it knew to recalculate the route when I veered "off course".

Some of the "Hawaiian dish of taro root pounded to a paste and often allowed to ferment" points of interest were out-of-date - Circle K isn't around here anymore, for example - the map navigation works quite well. And while the map didn't show the spaghetti bowl in detail, I'm more interested in navigating places like Caldwell, Boise, and Kanab. Not that I want to. Again.
