Friday night, I was navigating for a trip. A couple of friends and I were going to see the Tori Amos show in Oakland. The show was problematic, but the GPS functioned flawlessly, better than the Thomas Guide that we had for backup. In particular after the show, we were figuring how to get from the Paramount Theater to I-580 in the most efficient way. I was able to do an address lookup without specifying an address number or a cross street. For those who don't know, if you don't put in an address, GPS will offer you the option of choosing the nearest address. As an experiment, we tried this, and it directed us to an on-ramp that my driver didn't even know existed. Awesome, and a lot faster than calculating a 100-mile route back to Sacramento just to find the appropriate highway ramp to choose. This is a win for the Sendero product.
I felt I needed to share my latest Victor Stream “experience” with you…
Misplacing the windowsill in our bathroom over the weekend, I dropped my unit some 30 feet onto a paved surface outside our apartment… Alone in the house at the time, I went outside and searched for the pieces with my shoes – locating the card, cover, battery and “chassis” which had scattered over an area of some 50 square feet.
Not really believing that it would ever work again, I re-assembled it, and to my surprise, found it works perfectly!!! Just a little dent on one corner!
I have dropped my Stream many times over the six years I have owned it, but only from desk height. It is the one I took up Kilimanjaro and have also listened to music during cycle and horse rides – it seems also to be pretty sweat resistant!
Ah yes, the last thing – I dropped it into my bath last month and, after about three days to dry out, another full recovery… That I didn’t expect, sadly having previously drowned two Milestones...
Pedro, I use my Stream every day in the office and read virtually every night.
I have tried many other “talking book machines” over the years and have never found another unit that comes even close to the Stream.
Just felt like sharing this with you,
