    I got a Garmin for Christmas and naturally would like to use it on our next trip. I do not know much about it yet. Can anyone help me with some suggestions on how get the best information while driving around Disney?

    Please remember I am a newbie to the world of Garmin...:moped:

    I don't have a garmin, but my tomtom has a selection for point of interest POI in a given area. this should give a list of attractions presumably. it also has rstaurants list. just select the POI you wish to go to and it should figure a route from you present location to that selected POI.

    assuming garmin is similar to tomtom.

    We used a GPS for our last trip to Disney - it was the first time I stayed offsite in quite awhile - so it was VERY helpful! I'm so used to taking the Disney transportation that I have no sense of direction whatsoever!

    I programmed in the addresses of the place I was staying, all restaurants I might want to try, and all the different resorts and parks. That way, I just went to Favorites and hit one button. Made it so much easier that way.
