One of the most handy uses of the Sendero GPS, is the business yellow pages. When I needed a basement repair company, I just searched for basement and found three businesses within ten miles. I was then able to call each of them and get estimates and information. Try that from directory assistance.
I walked to the Post Office today which is a good two miles one way. The best part, because it was such a nice day, my husband walked with me with the two Pugs as well I had Ms. Whisper (my Service Dog) with me. My husband has never really seen me walk with Whisper, my cane, and the Breeze. I walked in front as I had the Breeze. My husband offered no help except to tell me where there was ice or low hanging tree branches. He said he did not want to take away from any of my skills. He was totally amazed at my confidence and I knew exactly where I was at all times. I just have to remember to turn the volume down when I go inside, as I had the speaker attached and I had everyone turn around and then they all wanted to know about the Breeze.
I loved the new Stream from the time of its release onward, but each upgrade has just made it better and better. Besides the new online services which users have already mentioned, Version 4.34 has improved TTS reading in subtle but significant ways, including vocabulary fixes and a more natural handling of pitch and punctuation. Also, the new method requiring an extra step before deletions become final is a great safeguard.
I'm just getting started with the GPS, and already, the others who regularly ride my bus, even the driver, are interested when I tell them what we are passing. It is great to learn about places you didn't know you were passing every day.
It is really satisfying to see the growth in my clients’ independence as they realize what the Trekker Breeze enables them to do.
