For $700. Sounds tempting
TomTom, makers of navigation software for PDA-based GPS devices, has made the move into the vehicle GPS arena with its $899 TomTom GO all-in-one navigator. It's a good move. In fact, we're hard-pressed to find anything we don't like about this cool-looking device. Our one caveat: Be prepared to use the GO forever. Once you've installed the mounting base, you're stuck with it--literally.

:D check out one of the review:
"Won't Catch Me With One"

Pros: It's a wonderful invention at first glance. Ease of navigation, ease of use, good value, good reliability, etc. make it very appealing. I can see why everyone would want to own one.
Cons: But, there is something that most people do not realize. GPS units work by tracking sattelites owned by the U.S. government. The sattelites then also know where you are. Ever wonder how OnStar can always figure out where you left your vehicle? They're tracking you. Read the Bible. Gov't tracking of civilians is a dangerous road to travel. Learn to use a map and forgo this invention.
:crazy: :poke:

I'm no fan of having the gov't or private industry track my every move, but perhaps Flower Child should read up on "How GPS Receivers Work". :lol:

Actually, it's a pretty neat article.
