GPS's are wonderful for going places you've never been. Obviously, barring head trauma, you shouldn't need them to get around town, but we love ours for when we go to Canada or some place like that.

It would be handy if the GPS built into my Odyssey had any data for Canada other than water boundaries. Apparently it thinks all roads stop at the US border, and there are no updates available with data for Canada. It's pretty ridiculous, considering that the car was, I believe, manufactured in Canada.

Roads?

Where we're going, there won't be...roads.

I was with my in-laws once when they were using theirs to find a restaurant in another town. It kept telling them to turn where there was this unpaved dirt path that led into a ravine. However, the restaurant was on the other side of the ravine so we were able to figure it out lol.

Silly rabbit! You had to buy the Odyssey edition with US and Canadian maps, not just US maps! Now you have to buy another one.

Alternately, a good GPS with lifetime map updates is only like $120... which is chump change for someone who drives a Honda.

So far I've gotten two gifts that I love which weren't really gifts (this weekend is the only time my entire family- yeah, immediate family, could get together so that's when we are exchanging gifts) but were actually things that people were trying to get rid of and were just looking to give them away.

I got a barely used snowboard from my brother and a never actually used banjo from my grandfather. I've been more excited with the things I got this year than I have been in a long time and I haven't even opened any christmas presents yet!
