I bought a GPS unit

I bought a GPS unit for my Palm Pilot this week, and it’s really, really really cool. It takes the unit about a minute to figure out where it is (and it doesn’t work at all in New York, too many buildings), but once it’s warmed up it only lags behind your position and direction by a couple of seconds in the car. What’s more, I can use my OmniSky modem to download maps for the area in which the GPS puts me. So now, I’ll never, ever get lost again!*


*(As long as my Palm is charged, my OmniSky has power, I have fresh batteries in my GPS unit, I have line-of-sight on at least six geostationary satellites, and I’m within a cellular CDPD network.)
