    Well this is a story I wanted to share with you guys.
    Thrusday (2/15/07), my boss came in with a garmin a garmin nuvi 660. He bought it for our sales reps when they visit hosipitals near by they would know where to go. I asked him how much he paid for it and he wasn't too happy about it but the sales person told him it was the best GPS on the market right now.

    I my jaw dropped and I told him he should return it and purchase one of the TomTom models. All the models have a great price and is user friendly. Especially for our sales reps who aren't too techincal. Well it turns out they need one asap because on of our sales reps was leaving to Arizona the next day. So I did the next best thing.

    I let her borrow my GO 910 for her trip. I miss my TomTom but I'm glad it's being put in good use right now. I should her a few features it has and the features I added to it and she like it.
    She will be coming back on wednesday, so I'll be without my GPS until then.
    I think I might take this opportunity to use an excuse to buy a ONE. :D

    Pedro, did you get a ONE? With those prices dropping, seems like a great time and a great addition to your 910. :)

    nice story! Hopefully TomTom reaps some benefit from your sharing.

    Yes please. Do a comparison between the new maps (North_America vs. USA_and_Canada). I know the POIs are different and I kinda wanna know.

    I think Nexty meant use your 910 for NA maps and the ONE for USA_Canada and do a side by side that way?
