Off route - recalculating!

As we were planning on doing a lot more visting this trip, we invested in a Garmin iQue 3600 - a combination GPS and Palm organizer. It has proven marvellous. When we start the trip we place it in the car thingy which connects to power and a speaker. Then we pick the address from our address book and say "Route to this address". It then calculates the route and uses voice prompts warning of upcoming turns and directions.
If we happen to miss a turn because either we misundertood the instruction, or were in the wrong lane, the unit announces "Off route, recalculating." The children now call it "Dad's new calculator".
