I’m all about having a GPS unit if you’re directionally-challenged. It’s one of the few “fancy gadgets” I feel is truly justifiable—it’s just safer to know where you’re going. And if you’re like me, you really need a copilot to make that happen. I will sing the praises of my GPS until I expire. (They can print “Audrey told her to go this way” on my tombstone.)
The problem, of course, is finding the right one, for the right price. Consider this Tom Tom ONE 3rd edition from Buy.com, perhaps. It’s refurbished and the current price is $119.98 with an available $20 mail-in rebate if you purchase by April 20th. That’s a highly-rated GPS unit for just under $100. (To compare: Check the ratings and the price over at Amazon.)
Also keep an eye on your email if you’re a regular Buy.com customer; some folks are receiving special bonus Google Checkout offers for $25 off $75 from them. That would make this excellent deal an insane deal, the kind where you blurt it out to total strangers.
Not that I’ve ever done that. Ahem.
