Just a reminder to not entirely trust the GPS directions. I have two Garmins and both tell me to take a nonexistent road to get back to my house. Years ago it was a passable road but in the ten years I have lived here it has not been passable in automobile. Construction workers and other people have tried to get to my house using GPS and have had to call for directions. In Anchorage the Garmin wanted me to take a right turn and I could see the RV park entrance to my left? These are not common happenings but I'd suggest you keep in mind the directions may not be correct. Oh, and they are not Garmin specific.

I agree! On Garmin's website they want you to give them information about incorrect directions. I sent one in several years ago and they still never updated it on their last map updates. My wife keeps a paper map by her side to correct "the women" in the Garmin. Most of the time, she will push the turn by turn on the Garmin to make sure it takes us on the correct roads.

more later,

Bksnoopy- I went ahead and bought the Magellan 1700 from costco. Haven't used it enough to know its route selection effeciency, but so far I really appreciate the data entry ( intuitive based) and preloaded POIs from AAA (rather than who ever cared to advertise with Garmin's data base provider).
