Its nice, when you're navigating around an unfamiliar area, to be able  
to have a realtime update of where you are exactly.  Its also fun to  
have a trace of your trip, if you're the kind of person who gets out a  
bit.  Nice in the forests and among nature, for example, to find that  
'magic spot' again ..

GPS is a good reason to get out more.
