I like GPS navigation. Not so sure about big brother watching me.

Gordon-

GPS is a wonderful gadget. I don’t really need it where I live, cause
all you have to do if you are lost in the mountains is walk downhill and
you’ll come to a road. And all the mountains chains run north-south.
What you have to watch out for is exposure and wildlife. Still, it’s a
fine thing to know exactly where on the topo map you are. I suspect
city dwellers would get more use out of a GPC than us country folk.

Yesterday I drove the 4.0 that I have been processing for delivery. This
is the first car we have sold with the communications package. I think
the Nav system is wild. The CD’s cost approx $150.00 each. I’m not sure
exactly how many there are total maybe 8 for the US. the CD Jaguar
provided us with plots the car in Pittsburg. Once I made the GPS link
the correct location came on screen and we had all kinds of fun
establishing way points etc. Jagdoc
