GPS for the slightly-less-fancy

By Mir

Anyone who knows me knows that I can get lost on my way to my own house. It’s a special gift. The gift of directional stupidity!

Thank goodness for my GPS unit. It has saved me more than once.

And yeah, someday maybe I’ll upgrade to one with Text-To-Speech (that means it says the street names out loud, too, not just “turn right”), but if you want GPS on the cheap, regular turn-by-turn directions are still pretty good, and a lot less expensive.

Today Amazon is offering a refurbished TomTom ONE 130 for just $69.99 shipped. That’s already a pretty good deal on a unit with good reviews, but there’s also an available $20 mail-in rebate, meaning it ends up being yours for under $50.

It’s hard to put a price on not getting lost, but at that price, even those of you who aren’t perpetual wanderers can probably afford a GPS.


  1. Just bought this. It comes in handy since we’re leaving for our first annual cross-country roadtrip in a few weeks. Thanks!

  2. Do they make a GPS for motel hallways, hospital corridors…
