GPS in Eastern Europe

This item appears on page 52 of the August 2010 issue.

Before our trip to Eastern Europe in August and September ’09, my husband, Fred, and I bought an updated Garmin GPS with the Europe map — very easy to use.

In Hungary, Romania, Montenegro and Croatia, all the roads were shown. In Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania only the major roads were shown, but that did not present a problem for us.

The GPS told us how much time was involved in getting from one city to another, which greatly helped us plan our day, and led us to must-visit attractions like the Painted Monasteries in northern Romania.

Programming our hotel or B&B into the GPS in the morning made it very easy to return to each evening.
