Tom Tom Go, or other vehicle portable GPS

3 posts in this topic

I do firewood deliveries, and when it's night time, especially in the rain / snow, it's almost impossible to see house numbers, unless they're on a mailbox or a light right above them.

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with any of these units and how well you like them.

Right now I run out of all the mapbooks to get me to the street, but then you're usually trying to figure out which house is the one you're going to on that block.

The other thing I was wondering, is how well it does with taking you the shortest route, or the fastest.

Usually once you're in the cities, it's not that big of a deal to get from one side to the other, I know most of the "make-a-moves", so will the GPS leave you stranded once in a while???

I love the garmin NuVi. IMHO, the money is really well worth it. I only use it for leisure travel and yet I think it is indispensable. If you also use it for work, it is a no-brainer. If I had to drive around for a living delivering stuff, I would get it in a heart beat. It really simplifies your life.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
