Garmin nüvi

Most of the Garmin nüvi's come ready to go right out of the box preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps for North America, Lifetime maps and traffic updates, a nice points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, gas stations, banks, hospitals and more. Some even announce the name of exits and streets, which is safer because you never have to take your eyes off the road. Simply touch the screen to enter a destination, and the nüvi takes you there with turn-by-turn directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map updates as you navigate. You can even enter your own points of interest (POIs), such as businesses, red light and speed cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.

Portable Hard Drives

Portable hard drives are sleek and compact. They let you store all your favorite videos, music, photos, and important files and then take it with you anywhere. They are also small enough to store in a safe or small lockbox for safety and security. Most of the portable hard drives available come with utility software for performing backups. For the cost, size and amount of data they can hold, there is no better method for backing up all of your critical computer files. With the amount of important information that most of us keep on our computers, there really is no excuse if you haven't bought at least one portable hard drive. And with them being so inexpensive, it is probably wise to have at least two.

TV Remotes

Is your dad the type of person that has a half-dozen remotes on the coffee table. Is he the only one in the family who knows how to use them all. Did he have to make up a cheat sheet so the rest of the family knows how to turn on the TV. Then a universal TV remote that's designed for the whole family may be just the thing to let you do away with all the hassles of multiple remotes - and multiple fights. One that gives you easy one-touch control for all your home entertainment is the Harmony, from Logitech. The nice thing about the Harmony is the One-touch, activity-based control that provides any member of the family with easy access to home entertainment. The color touch screen has buttons that "think" like you do. All you need to do is choose the activity that you want. Want to watch TV? Play a DVD? Listen to the radio? Just press a single button, and the Harmony remote will do the work for you.

Wireless Speakers

Have you ever wanted to listen to music throughout the house, patio and backyard without the hassle of running unsightly speaker wire. Then wireless speakers are the way to go! Most of the wireless speakers available are powered by 900MHz circuitry which automatically locks in and keeps the audio signal clear and strong with a range of about 150 feet with no line of sight limitations. The circuitry works just like the wireless 900MHz cordless phones and can deliver a crystal clear signal through walls or other obstacles in your yard. There are systems that support all types audio inputs including RCA inputs for home theatre receivers, MP3 players, computers and iPods. You can even find some with a remote, so you can adjust the volume without having to play with the unit itself. Looking to listen by the pool, just look for weather-resistant wireless speakers that can be used in wet areas. There are numerous choices available that are sure to fit your situation.
