      I’ve tried texting in that fashion but found I to correct so much it took more time. Is there a secret to doing it. I know to speak clearly and you have to tell it period. Maybe I should try it some more.

        Well since we are having a geezer-fest, I don't much care for a GPS. I have one on the trike (Garmin) and you have to pull over and type for a half hour to enter a destination. Once underway it is OK. I have a TOM TOM for the truck or my wife's car and it truly is an instrument of the devil. We were coming back from Colorado to our place in Medina County and the stupid thing kept wanting to take us a zillion miles off course.

        I have used Waze and it is OK for the big city I guess but when I want to navigate, I use google maps. Just type in the destination and hit go and it starts giving directions (voice) immediately and is more simple than Waze. I am pretty simple so simple works for me. I haven't used a GPS since I figured out google maps works easier and better.

          Will try Google maps next time I need directions. Sounds good to me if it’s easier then Wayz. Thanks

            Mine doesn't like air conditioning or road noise or any other ambient noise. It also needs a good internet connection to work properly. And some days it just works better than others.

              I use Google Maps also. My lifetime free update GPS hasn't seen daylight in several years. My truck and Millies car won't see updates either as long as Google Maps is free.

                Waze is now owned by Google. There is little difference between Waze and Google Maps.

                When towing we run Google Maps and Rand McNally RV7710. The Rand McNally won't route me under a low clearance overpass.

                Not towing I use Google Maps alone.

                            Google maps shows speed traps, disable vehicles, objects on road and traffic slow downs.
