I have been longing to have my own GPS but before owning it, I planned getting my driver license and it happened that I got one and I told my husband since I got my driver license, I wanted to have a GPS so that I could visit my friend and never get lost again if I will visit them or I'll go shopping. GPS (global positioning system) is amazing as I can imagine holding a map all the time and it takes time to find a place and besides w/o a GPS would be difficult to find a place that you are looking for like the restaurant, grocery, friends house etc. You know GPS is very convenient and you really need to have it especially when you do landtrip or you are not familiar with the place and it helps you find a place that you wanted to go to or you will never get lost again. The GPS that I've got is really good since I'll know how fast I am driving and it shows the speed limit in that area and it has lots of features that you can read below and this type of GPS cost $179. I guess I cannot live without GPS and I am sure I'll get lost. Thanks to those who invented GPS!
