GPS Magellan eXplorist 100

I jumped, I cannot take the pressure, too much, too little time, I am leaving the USA and need my toys.

I purchased the GPS Magellan eXplorist 100 and it should be here in 2 days it says, and I think in three days, however it will arrive... I hope before I leave on the 11th.

THE FUTURE of Travel Guidebooks is this, you will carry a cell phone that has the GPS - Global Positioning Satellite readers, it will start to talk to you when you are within set distances of a tourist attractions.

"Hey dingaling, you are close to the Stature of Liberty, take a look."

Of course there will be some type of sponsor, advertisement, cost, etc, however you will know.

I am sure or feel the GPS, CELL and PDA and all the other acronym's will merge and have babies, you will have a multi-use toy.

However for it to work for anyone it will have to talk.

Therefore I am going to start to collect these GPS coordinates and talk in terms of GPS coordinates. Being that I know nothing about using these toys, I had to JUMP.

Make that leap of faith, I am on the right trail, path, thought wave, or my instincts are keeping me safe. Only time will tell, however a person has to make a few mistakes to conquer the world.

I paid about 104 U.S. Dollars for this toy, quoted 189 in Radio Shack, however online much cheaper. I had in my mind a price of 100 Dollars for the toy, as a target. I have price of 200 for the Quad Band Cell Phone, I am leaning real hard towards the Motorola 620 Quad-Band Unlocked at about 189 Dollars.

I personally think I would be a good test rat for these toys, I need Magellan to write me and tell me they want to give me a Satellite System like them boys in Iraq, reporting from the middle of nowhere. I would be glad to wind them up and let the opinions roll.

oooh GPS! last time i saw one of them in the flesh (except the cheap nasty ones in cars) was about 5 years ago on a yaucht... It had one built in, and we had a hand-held one as backup. They are extremely useful on the high seas... especially if you can't see any Bouys or land... just water. you could be anywhere. But you are actually here.

I think a useful tool for many people who go off the beaten track more than they stay on it. There are some now that bring up survey maps with routes on and everything.... but last i looked (year or so ago) the civillian ones weren't up to spec enough tyo hold every streetmap of the world on... you had to change them via the internet for where you are.
