This is a smart move for Radio Shack. They have lost some of that iconic American image they use to have. Best Buy, Circuit City and stores like that have popped up everywhere in America over the past 20 years. A name like Lance Armstrong will get them a lot of attention. And, should Lance win the Tour, they look like geniuses.

When Lance won his first TDF he was 27 years old. Alberto won his first at 25.

Even at that, the fidelity on the roads is so coarse that I appear to be off the road most of the time. It looks like I keep missing the road and crossing it like a drunk who cannot pass a field sobriety test—I was going to say, like a novice who can't hold a line, but even a novice goes straighter than the 705.
By that fact that it only includes major roads, it has no ability to route on back roads. The map is useful for getting your bearings when you're lost, but the 305's ant trail map was only slightly less useful for that—it had no towns or labels. The map is useful to pointing you in the direction of your destination, but you still have to hunt for appropriate roads unless you like going on major roads.
