Hi Nancy and Ziners,
In response to your GPS question, you will absolutely find it to be a great investment. I bought mine in 2003 from Garmin. http://www.garmin.com
They have them for hiking, cars,boats etc. I have used my Street Pilot Deluxe and it is great for rental cars. It's taken me to Portland,OR, St.Louis,MO, Dallas,TX and so forth. It's also great because it has voice instructions when wanted.
If by my mistake and make a wrong turn, it will say "Off route.Recalculating.' Or it there is a car accident, you can find alternate routes.
If and when traveling downtown,sometimes the satellite signal will fade out. Be patient,though. It helps of course to have along a local map for handy reference.
Hope this helps, Nelly MS
