MOTONAV TN20 Giveaway: What Mom needs!

The streets of New Orleans are anything but easy to navigate.  Even though I was born and raised here, the city streets always leave me lost.  Another fact of life here is evacuations.  At least once every few years, we find ourselves driving out of harms way to an unfamiliar city.  We have affectionately called these little trips, “Hurrications” which in 2005 lasted about 6 months for my family.

In times like this, when tensions and anxiety are at an all time high, a GPS navigation system, such as the MOTONAV TN20, would help to ease my mind.  From the website:

MOTONAV TN20 is a reliable, easy-to-use portable GPS navigation system that relieves the stress of driving in unfamiliar places with spoken street names and turn by turn directions.” motonav What a great Mother’s Day gift (hint hint)!  Driving in ANY city would be so much easier with this unit.  The MOTONAV TN20 has over 1 million pre-loaded points of interest and can help you find just about any restaurant, hotel, business or gas station on your trip!

This model has a 3.5″ touch screen which will adjust in brightness for day or night driving.  The touch screen allows the driver to use their finger to zoom and easily move around the map in the direction they wish to go.  It can also be mounted on your windshield with a suction cup adapter and directions can be viewed in either 2D or 3D images.

Need more features?  Check out the big brother, the MOTONAV TN30!  The biggest difference between the two units is that the TN30 is Bluetooth enabled and has Caller ID capabilities.  It is also a bit bigger with a 4.3″ touch screen and 4 million preloaded destinations.

Motorola has generously donated one MOTONAV TN20 to a lucky Not-So-Blog reader!  This is a great prize with an ARV of $179.99!

    I need this! I get lost too easily! A month ago, I was driving to my aunts house but took the wrong exit(thanks to confusing exit signs and bad yahoo directions) and ended up going in the wrong direction for like 20 minutes……almost left Minnesota too!

  2. Kelsey Kaysen says:

    I follow you and tweeted!

  3. john ferris says:

    I need this because my sense of direction is really bad.

  4. Jennifer Neal says:

    So I don’t need to ask for directions or call someone to ask (since you can’t use a phone while driving in CA anymore)!

  5. K. Cleaver says:

    We’ve recently moved into a big city and this would be better than trying to drive and read a map at the same time. Thanks!

  6. Dorothy Spackman says:

    I would love to win this. I can get lost faster than you can believe. It would be so nice to be able to actually get someplace that I am going without having someone come to direct me.

  7. i just moved last month cross country from colorado to south carolina. All the streets and roads in this area interconnect and I get lost on a regular basis and this would so help me

    thanks so much

  8. Geoff K says:

    I absolutely need a GPS for all of the traveling I have in store for the summer — my family and I are taking an extensive road trip vacation, and none of us is too savvy with maps and directions — and later this summer I will most likely be driving to other cities for job interviews and possibly moving, so having a GPS would really take a lot of the stress and anxiety of driving out of that already hectic experience. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  13. Aisling says:

    I really need this because I’m somewhat directionally challenged even in my hometown. When I travel on business, I sometimes spend way too much time “sightseeing” on the way to my appointment sites. The MOTONAV TN20 GPS would resolve that problem.

  24. Tracy Bloomer says:

    I have no sense of direction. Mapquest has misguided me. I’m like the ONLY person left on my son’s football team who doesn’t have a GPS. This would be awesome! Thks!

  25. I need this prize because I dont have a clue where I am going —- EVER !

  26. My husband and I travel often and it’s difficult reading maps, at least for me it is and there have been many times I’ve been on my own and had to call him to ask where I’m suppose to go I think he would appreciate not having to go onto google from his computer at work to try and get me to my destination.


  27. I could use this when we travel this summer!

    I’d love to win this prize, thanks for sponsoring this.


  28. I realllly need this because our current GPS is 5 years old and does not cut it anymore. So often it doesn’t have the new streets on it and it is really slow. This MTONAV TN20 looks awesome and would help on summer trips!

  29. Betty C says:

    I can usually find my way around but sometimes in involves hours of studying maps ahead of time. It would be so nice to be able to just get in the car and go where I need to be.

  30. Betty C says:

    I added your Gear Up For Summer button.

  31. I need this so it will be easy to get where I need to go without paper maps and with kids in the car

  32. kathleen yohanna says:

    I really need this system. I turned right when I should have turned left and it took me almost an hour to get beck to the right place. Help!!!

  33. My husband has one in his car but I don’t. I’d love to have this!

  34. trixpixel says:

    I am totally directionless so this would be a big help!

  35. this would be a blessing 2 own:)

  36. Jennifer Jozwiak says:

    I need this to give to my little one’s dad. he’s always getting lost!

  37. My son broke my husband’s GPS a few weeks ago. I would love to surprise him with a new one for father’s day :)

  38. I need this prize because I am constantly lost while driving. There are times where I have to pull over more than once to ask for directions to my location.

  39. Suanne Giddings says:

    I would love to win this for me! I could use this because no matter where I go outside of my neighborhood I always get lost and have to stop and ask for directions. I need a Map just to go around the corner. I’m so tired of printing out Mapquest directions and even then having to stop at various gas stations to put me back on the right path. My family makes comments like: I could get lost in my own backyard — I could get lost in a paper bag. I need this because I feel safe when I know where I’m going. I often travel alone and it’s hard to read directions while driving. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
