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.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
