Re: My journey into the 21st century
I recently ordered a GPS for myself off of EBay. It is coming from China. I don't know how many on here have ordered from China, but tracking through EMS has been frustrating. I think they may need that GPS more than I do. I spent around 100 bucks for it and it had free shipping so I'm not going to complain. It is an OEM GPS. I would have never thought about gettting one if I had not used my brother's one day. I'm not afraid of being lost, and I have driven delivery trucks and worked for TWC enough to find my way around. Its just a convenience thing. After having to use maps and such for work, I want to be able to just go on my free time.
While I'm on this subject, does anyone have any experience dealing with EMS tracking? I used the tracking number at USPS and all it says is foreign acceptance. I expected shipping to take a little longer because of customs, but not being able to track it too often is getting to me. EMS China gave me this bit of insight:

Where the heck is shangdiyingyumbu anyway? USPS says:
Status: Foreign Acceptance

I'm pulling my hair out right now from just not knowing. My how all this technology has made us impatient. Remember when you just waited for a package to arrive, or when you had to mail off something to get a package back. That took forever.
