You said it just like I would say it. well.. in the beginning. I have not put it to a big trip but I had it on rental car before. Personally I would say you will like it once you realize its potential and features.cca said:I've never owned a vehicle with Nav before. I ordered it on my new rig mainly because I liked the big display and the Nav seems like a neat toy..
The truth is like the Hertz's commercial "Hertz Never Lost!" with a navigation. In the beginning, I think it is kind of fun.. afterward, it is a feature you can have. And you will feel safe by having it. I had the need to go somewhere with an address at dark night. Well.. I could be calling people on the phone and try to see the hard to read street signs, even worse the address numbers off the neighborhood hourses. Your navi will get you there at the exact locatoin.
I also start to use it like a phone book, believe it or not. You can find store phone numbers off the system once you become more comfortable with it.
Since you have it... try not to say something like " I can do it with a $5 map." YOu will need a trunk load of maps in your car. I have friends who say they don't see the need for power windows in the car. To me, I am glad I got the navi!
