Actually, the best investment a new person can make is one of those giant map books. Go ahead and spring for the really big one. It costs more, but it'll get you where you need to go. And you'll find that you don't always stay in your part of town, so getting the county ones will just result in pain down the road. Actually, what we all really need is a good navicomputer. Or maybe R2 with some extra programming for the Atlanta metro.
