Here's a question for your question. What does 'evo' mean?
I punch in a gas station and end up in someones front yard, EVO, short for evolution

Well, I can't help you with your GPS. I think that is very weird. My GPS has never let me down. Is it an older unit? Maybe it needs a map upgrade? Maybe it's not getting a good satellite signal? Has it always done that?

I am sure many of us here know that the human brain does not completely mature until the ripe age of 25. Here is my inquiry, why is it that liberals who are older than the age of 25 fail to have any logical reasoning or understanding of reality when it comes to their beliefs and behaviors? Is it a brain defect? A chemical imbalance? I really want to know.

Human beings adapt to the situation they are in or where they want to be.

So I believe it is because they want to appeal to the under 25 crowd (yeah I'm hip), or
a chemical imbalance due to something in their youth, or
they want to be "lifer" politicians and stay in Washington DC.

Ya its a older one, when ever you punch in the street it only lets you put it numbers for a certain range say 5k to 6k when the one your looking for is 2k. then it guides you to a random spot and says you have arrived.

They are relatively cheap now-a-days. I bought my daughter a Tom Tom for Christmas. It was less than $90.00. It just might be worth it to get a new one and save yourself a LOT of aggravation.

A conversion kit is basically a new top end with new mags. Not simply a different barrel etc. It's like buying half a gun.......Not all of them work that great either so I hear.

Some calibers like 40S&W, 9mm and .357sig etc. can be changed back and forth with different barrels. Instead of a conversion kit, they have conversion barrels.

Do you drive something manly like a Chevy truck? Maybe it's mating season.
