Default TomTom

Of course, Santa came through today. Dropped a new Tom Tom XL under my tree.

Oooh, whats this, I can USB this thing to my PC? Ohhh, hey looky here at all these files. Hmmm, what'* this one? Ohhh, this is neat. So I changed the bootup flash screen to look like this one.
Damn, this has got to qualify for some sort of SUCK UP award?

TomTom'* are nice! I agree....you've sucked so much on this that you could probably drag a golf ball through 30' of garden hose. Maybe even be able to suck start a Harley!

I love my TomTom. It'* bootup screen is currently a Chevy bowtie, but that'* because I used to drive a Chevy. Now I need to look for a Pontiac symbol.

Me and the wife got ourselves a new talking Garmin Nuvi 1350, w/ speech, 4.3" screen, and the USB data interface.(I haven't done anything with it yet) They are all 2x as nice now that you don't have to pay a monthly service fee. I think the 6 millions points of interest preloaded is awesome! We unwrapped it early, and used it to go to a Mall up in Syracuse NY we hadn't been to before. After the Mall we thought about eating and I'd tried the location finder. The list of items is large. I wanted All you can eat Chinese Buffet. I chose Restaurants/ Asian/ within 5 miles from the Menu, and it came with 7 choices. (Large commercial area) We did a little drive and compared and choose a newer looking one with a lot of cars there. Work out to be a good one.

You can never go wrong with an all you can eat Chinese buffet. There'* a couple up this way that are awesome! I'm good for hitting them at least once a month. Anymore than that.....I'd end up looking like Jack Nicholson with man *****!

Got a Garmin Nuvi 265 from the parents. USB, bluetooth speaker phone, download different voices and car choices (did that last night) and all the goodies John mentioned. It'll also do different boot up screens like Mike is mentioning. Add an SD card and have tons of memory for anything else that doesn't fit in the amount they come with from Garmin.

for you TomTom users.. go get Cartman'* voice. I hear it'* hilarious.
