I don't have a GPS, but if I did I would name it Bertha. I would update Bertha regularly, except for when I didn't. And then I might meet Mayhem, hollering about recalculating.
That's why I've popped my old Hunt for Red October into the VHS player. Connery's Ramius is the best possible combination of Geico lizard and AllState mad man when he orders a "recompute".
Captain, we are approaching the first turn.
Increase speed to 26 knots and recompute.
The little lizards were out and about last weekend in the last blast of summer temps. Crawling on the warm, sunny bricks, they were recomputing and recalculating, upgrading and plotting locations.
