Cliff and I seem to get lost often when we're traveling; he often says, "If there's a 50/50 chance of choosing the proper road, I always take the wrong one."
When I got the laptop, I bought a GPS system to go with it. It's never performed properly when we really needed it. It could be "operator error", but whatever. Cliff has never let me forget that I paid for a system we haven't been able to depend on.
His brother called the other day, telling him about his new GPS: his wife bought it for him on Home Shopping Network for $300. He told Cliff how easy it is to use, and about some of its finer features.
"Ha," I snorted. "If it was $300 on HSN, I'll bet I can get it for $200 at Circuit City or on Ebay."
The laugh is on me. Any way you shake it, the Magellan Maestro 3140 cannot be purchased anywhere for under $369, and that's on Ebay, where you have to add another $25 for shipping.
I called Phil's wife and told her I couldn't find it anywhere for $300, not even on HSN.
"Oh, that was for one day only," she said, smugly.
So to Joanna and all my friends who shop on QVC and HSN, I apologize for thinking I knew more about it than you did. There are bargains to be found on HSN.
If anyone happens to see a great deal on the Magellan Maestro 3140, let me know, would you?
(I won't consider any other kind, because we had such horrible luck with the laptop GPS. I figure if there's any problem with this one, Cliff can gripe at Phil. Or call him for advice.)
