Sat Nav

My attention was caught by an advertisement on TV last night for Halfords (who sell everything you can want for a car and more) offering up to 50% of SatNav systems. That was excuse enough for me! My navigation is lamentable - even going places that I've been before. Several traumatic experiences have been had going on site visits for work in places as far afield as Worcester, Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds.

No longer though. I have a shiny new Garmin and now I just need somewhere to go to try it out. Superb features include voice directions and the ability to tell you the nearest location of useful things such as petrol stations (many the time I've almost run out of gas in the middle of an area unfamiliar to me).

That is my treat to me this month, after all, last month it was paying for the MOT!
