Penny - this is the via point I was talking about earlier, although like Gary states, you can also program it one destination at a time.

If you do a via point, you would enter your location in Fort Lauderdale first, then go back and enter in the F1 races in Austin. After you program the Austin location, it will ask you something like "Do you want to add this as a via point, or set it as your final destination?" Select the option that states to add it as a via point. It will get you there first, then on to Fort Lauderdale, or wherever it is you're going after the races.

I think Smart Phone can also double as a gps.

Then if you get lost you can always call for directions

we always meet our son and family in the spring for a get away birthday weekend. We go to a hotel, get ajoining rooms which the granddaughters absolutely love, do a bit of shopping, eating, swimming, and enjoying each others company.
I had a gps for dummies that did a wonderful job, I have had it about 3 yrs. While trying to find how to get to the town, and hotel my handy dandy GPS for Dummies froze up. I got so frustrated I threw it out the window. After stopping and asking directions we finally found the hotel.
Last night we went to best buy and bought me a brand new Magellan RoadMate GPS with lifetime road updates (I am thinking that Lifetime means about 3 yrs until it freezes up).
I like this one it almost sings when it is time to exit the road I am on. Doesnt take much to make me happy, but I am happier when the GPS gets me there.

The good thing about a GPS is you don't have to fold it.

Ours is a Garmin, picked up a cheap refurb unit. I was afraid I would not like it. Was also afraid that it would take us down roads we shouldn't be on.

Ours is about 3 years old also. Mandy (My wife named it Mandy after the voice she choose) died last month. Battery was dead. I youttubed it and bought a battery for $4.95, she now works fine.

We will get a new one someday, but not right away. We do use it a lot.
