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.

GPS Magellan eXplorist 100
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.
