Save Money When Driving - Get a GPS
A recent article in the Boston Globe detailed a few ways to save money while owning a car, and that includes owning a GPS. The article is a little thin, but certainly offers the idea that driving around lost wastes time and gas, get a GPS and get yourself found. We know from a recent study (Sponsored by NAVTEQ through so some readers have voiced concern over teh validity of the study - I think it's reasonable) showed a reduction in miles and gas consumption for GPS owners.
Now, you can do the math about wasted time and gas vs. the cost of a GPS, but I think the payoff is in the area of freedom and confidence. I can't tell you how many "away" games I have used the GPS to get to and had no problem while others are barely avoiding accidents as they read cryptic directions off of a print out from the coach on how to find a field.
Add to that finding a business, a Real Estate Listing, ANYTHING when you are new to town, and so on.....
How does a GPS save you time and money? Leave a comment to tell us how.
