My story is maybe more "nice" than funny, but anyway, here goes.
2 Christmases ago, our daughter was 2.5 yrs old. Whenever we would get in the car to go anywhere, she would ask me, "Daddy, you got your G-P-S?" with a staccato voice. Then she'd say "I got my G-P-S" and would grab whatever was in the car near her, a toy, a stick, or whatever. It was very cute. So I thought about it a bit and decided to try to get her a GPS of her own. Except of course, I didn't want to get her a "real" one because she might drop/break it, whatever. So I hit upon the idea of calling up Garmin and asking if they had any old GPS "shells" without electronics that I could buy. So, I called them up and told them about my 2.5 year old wanting her own GPS. The guy on the phone was very nice about the whole thing and offered to send me a display case unit for free! I was thrilled. And he sent it over in only a couple days. When it arrived, it had exactly what I'd been hoping for. A GPS "shell" with a pretend screen with an arrow pointing on it. And in addition he sent me a 18" tall inflatable Etrex Legend also used for store displays, etc. It was great! She was, of course, excited when she opened it, and he really enjoyed leading us on the hunt for geocaches after that!
So thanks again Garmin! and Thank You Dorkfish for the cointest!
