I have travelled up and down West Coast a number of times. Usually Vancouver to Los Angeles – Los Angeles to Vancouver. A Garmin GPS would probably save me both time and money finding the best course. There are a number of favorite stops along the way, I’d love to bookmark, so if need be, I can find again to share with friends/family.

Not a great story but one time me and my family went early for some vacation and we spent more time (until night) searching for a place to stay instead of taking a walk and enjoying the vacation.
Well, at least with a GPS now we could save that time of searching and enjoy it with more leisurely activities 😀

My husband is not someone that asks for directions, even when we’re lost, Garmin gps will unsure we get to our destination, which in turn relaxes both myself and my husband. 🙂

My fondest memories was our trip to Disney, which was a 2hr ride. Both my parents tried to out do the other by sneaking extra spending money to me O___O and saying don’t tell your mom/dad. Imagine their surprise when I walked up to both of them with a $60 goofy hat, some light up portable fan, and snacks. (I was 11yrs old and not a very wise spender but I sure did have fun)

Back quite a few years ago, we went on a family vacation to the beach in RI. My mom has a horrible sense of direction. We started for home and ended up in downtown Providence…. then we kept ending up back in the SAME spot at least 3 more times. My dad was so mad! Too bad there weren’t GPS’s back then because she sure could have used one!

It’s always a smoother trip when you don’t have to worry about whether your directions are accurate, this Garmin would take that out of our travel plans.

We were lost for so many times that the journey took about 12 hours to reach. we were so tired we didn’t have the energy to tour anywhere in Las Vegas the next day. Wish we had this Garmin GPS to help make our next trip more fun and memorable.

My favorite family vacation is the one when we went to Gir National Park. Well, it’s the only place in the world where you can find Asiatic Lions and as we all are wildlife enthusiasts, seeing Asiatic lions was amazing experience for all of us. And now, for our next trip, we are planning to go to Jim Corbett national park and some other forests nearby to see Bengal tigers. The Garmin GPS will certainly help us on our next trip as the area where we are planning to go is unfamiliar terrain for us. Normally, people hire a guide to help them on such a trip. But in our case, we all prefer to go all out by ourselves. So, the Garmin GPS will surely be of a great help when we will go in search of a bengal tiger in the unknown area and it can show us the right way. Also, there are always chances of picking up the wrong way in such trips and wasting hours. But with Garmin GPS, we will be on the right track throughout our trip.

I live in the pacific northwest. One of my favorite places in the world is Lake Cushman. I remember being 6 years old, and, for an entire day, I snorkeled throughout the entire lake. I saw entire schools of fish and other wildlife, and the whole time, had my loyal dog, Pluto, paddling behind me. I remember this day vividly as one of the best days of my life. I didn’t have to worry about getting hit or told I was worthless, and for the first time understood what care-free meant. Something was different that day; my parents didn’t yell at, hit, or humiliate me for an entire day. I felt euphoric! Consequently, I’ve always longed to travel since, and often embark on road trips, looking find another little pocket of happiness. A Garmin GPS would be an amazing companion during one of these searches/mini-adventures. 🙂

Our favorite vacation was in a beach in Cebu, and GPS will help our trip to an easier and fastest way. ^_^

I really want to take my family (husband & 3 young kids) to Massanutten in Virginia. We live in Massachusetts so it would be quite an adventurous and scenic journey!!

My favorite memory was a couple of years ago when my dad tried driving on the streets in Rome… Let’s just say far too many instances could have been prevented if we would have had a GPS available… Oops.

Drove from the Peninsula in VA to Nags Head, NC. The kids loved the beach, but I hated the how much longer will it take? GPS would have been great for the kids to bug, instead of me!

My favorite so far was when we drove from California to Colorado with the kids. The GPS would help us on our trip this summer!

My favourite family trips was when we went to Solo, Indonesia. Because it’s the times that I got married. All of my big family was there. That’s really rare opportunity to had them meet in one places. With this amazing give away, I will make them to have allot of family gathering. Because it will make it simple just by following the GPS route and you would never lost on the way.

This could help make our trip memorable by not getting lost and spending more time seeing the sights and not a wrong road.

As a complete family (our boys are still young), we’ve only taken one vacation. We went to an indoor water park during the winter months to escape. We love to camp & hike so this would be great to let us explore more of the areas around us without getting lost!

We went to San Francisco and spent so much time lost because roads were closed and detours. With this Garmin, we could have spent more time enjoying our vacation spot and less time trying to find it

In 2011 rainy season. It was very very heavy rain. Many road block by water. we lost allmost 5 to 4 hour . many people give wrong direction.
It was very horrible tour for us . I love rainy season but that day I can not forget. but still love rainy season

My favorite family vacation was going to Disney with my family when I was younger. Hopefully the next time I go with if I won the GPS I wouldn’t get lost.

every time we need to go somewhere that needs to be mapped out there is an argument. having a gps would save my marriage.

What I hate most about driving to far away lands for vacation is I’m usually stuck with people who don’t know where they are going or how to follow a map. And when it comes to asking for directions, forget about it. The Garmin GPS would make the trip less of a headache and more enjoyable.

We relied on what we thought was a reliable GPS to guide us via back roads to Woods Hole to catch a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. Yep, lost and missed ferry.
