Is a GPS going to make it that much easier?

Jump to last reply

We don't have a GPS at home, and would never really consider getting one, but a couple of friends loved using one in Ireland.

As I`m the navigator, it might be preferable to having my head stuck in a map, and my husband, as a geographer ``never gets lost`` (ahem - never gets lots, just doesn`t know where he is). He`s quite ok with getting one, but I want to know if they`re really worth it, or is it marketing that`s making me even consider this.

I`m guessing we can get just as lost with a GPS as without, and its going to be 120E for two weeks, so what`s your experience - worth it or not.

If not, any standout maps we should get.
