Unfortunately I can't get to my daughter's house or my son's house without going through Atlanta. Going around is like an hour and a half detour. When my daughter was at Vanderbilt in Nashville we had to go through Atlanta to get there too. It's a friggin nightmare.I seldom travel to a city anymore so I don't need GPS for that.
The wife wants USGS 1:24,000 of our area and the immediate surrounding areas (i.e. adjacent maps).
I have observed that people who didn't grow up with maps and street directories simply wont use them, they rely totally on the gPS. Even when using it to go somewhere unfamiliar I will always check the path across the map first just to get a feel where I'm going. Old habits die hard, but they also pay off.Now with saying that, every person should be familiar with always knowing where North is and how to read a map.
