I have a GPS tool in my smartphone, but using it on the 10 hour drive slurped the battery power from my phone like you wouldn’t believe. When my brother took us to Virginia Beach in his van, I got to see his GPS and see how it worked, for the first time. I have to say, I was thoroughly smitten. So I purchased a portable GPS unit while in Virginia, and used it for the trip back to New York State. The GPS is SO COOL! I loved using it! The nice thing especially is that it will redirect you back onto your route if you deviate from it, for example, when you veer off at an exit to go to a gas station. The GPS I bought shows POIs,or Points of Interest. These included gas stations, banks, ATMs, museums, and more. I just loved it! Of course, I am a gadget fiend, so I enjoy toodling with a new device.
My husband was immediately smitten, too. He didn’t get a GPS (they are rather pricey, at least $130 for the good ones). I was able to get one and claim it for the business (and as a tax deduction since I use it for my travels). I have to say, I am very surprised that he likes the GPS. He is definitely not a gadget guy. But he tinkered with the GPS and has been gushing about it ever since. I am thinking of getting Mr. Mecomber his own GPS for Father’s Day or his birthday. What a great gift! Spending another $150, however, is a bit much especially since I won’t be able to claim this expense for the business.
However, another solution is at hand– Savings.com! This is a new coupon site I have recently discovered. It’s my favorite place to get coupons and promo codes. The site is extremely well-organized and features a ton of shopping sites, especially sites that husbands and dads love.
Do you have a GPS? Isn’t it the coolest gadget ever??
