2008 Honda Accord: Navigating to San Diego Part 2

November 29, 2007

My horrible, yet free, parking spot for the Colts-Chargers game

On my trip to San Diego to see my Colts play the Chargers (see Part 1). With more than an hour to kick off, the lot was full and I ended up having to park a mile away, up a huge hill and at the end of tiny Shawn Ave. On the upside, I didn't have to pay for parking.

When finding my way from this spot and throughout the day, the Accord's excellent navigation system came in handy.

I had to travel to multiple destinations all over the city (sometimes repeatedly), which made the "Today's Destinations" function invaluable. I programmed a house address, a Shell station, Qualcomm Stadium and a Target (we needed four emergency rain ponchos for the rain falling on a city that was on fire only two weeks prior). Voice commands allowed me to easily program a destination within seconds, while the control knob and intelligently designed menus made entering and recalling the day's destinations a breeze.
