An attractive man with a sexy English accent tells me where to turn on my way to the location of my choice; a romantic restaurant for dinner, drinks and dessert. I’m in love. *sigh*
My new love interest isn’t a man, however: It’s the TomTom GPS device.
My sister-in-law let me try out her TomTom while she was in town visiting us. I’m amazed at how easy it is to get around with one of these devices in your car. I can see how handy it might be in a part of town that you’re not familiar with, or going somewhere for the first time.
It will be especially helpful on a long car trip — vacations and business trips. You can find the nearest gas station, restaurant, shops, etc. Just type in what you are looking for and the device will find it for you and tell you how to get there.
A friend of mine has the Garmin version and she loves it too. She recently told me of a time when she was in an unfavorable part of town at night, with her young daughter. There was construction going on in town with several closed streets. But, with her GPS device, she didn’t have to worry about finding her way. She keyed in her information and the device showed her a way home — to safety.
I think that every woman should have one of these in her arsenal of tools. I plan to get one as soon as the sweet-talking Englishman tells me which way to the electronics store.
