Never Get Lost with TomTom!

photo-5.JPGI don't know about you, but I am a slave to my navigation system. In fact, even when I'm in my own neighborhood, you can find me programming a random address into my TomTom because trust me, without a GPS device, I could be lost for hours. And truth be told, I've even lost my way just a mere 10 minutes from my home.

While I've become quite dependent on my GPS, with that dependence comes freedom too. If left to my own devices, I would never be able to find any of the baseball fields my son plays on throughout the spring and summer without the help of a navigation system. Recently, I was given the chance to review the new TomTom GO 500/600 and discovered how easy it was to navigate the streets of New Rochelle, Mt. Vernon, Yonkers and more -- hitting one remote baseball field after another without getting lost. Now, instead of making it my son's game by the 3rd inning, with my TomTom, I'm finally getting to the bleachers on time.

With the TomTom GO 500/600, I can now get places faster and safer with these incredible new advancements:
•  TomTom uses real-time traffic data to inform me where there may excessive traffic, or a road block, and suggests an alternate route to expedite the trip.   
•  TomTom makes it easier map my route with new MyDrive technology. I can actually plan a route on my phone while at the office or out running errands, send it to my TomTom GO 500/600, and be ready to hit the road as soon as I get in the car.

Honestly, it's really a no brainer - if you don't have built in GPS in your car or if you rent a car for vacation or business trip, then the TomTom is a perfect solution to help you find your way to your final destination while avoiding those annoying traffic pitfalls along the way.

A 2013 study said that the average mom drives her children around for 1,248 miles per year, or the equivalent of two weeks ... and that's not counting the added hours spent in traffic. How much time do you spend on the road and what would you do with the time you would save not stuck in traffic?

  • I spend about 8-9 hours a week on the road, and with all the time i would say by not being stuck in traffic i would use it to stop and get me a manicure and pedicure. Pampering is always a great choice when time is saved.
