There’s a letter in the LA Times today from someone who’s named her car’s GPS “Agnes”.  This struck a chord with me, because I’ve noticed, for some time now, that a LOT of people seem to be naming that talking box in the car.  My parents call theirs “Henrietta”.

So, gentle readers, I throw over to you: if you have a GPS in your car, have you named it?  If so, what?

(I get around with Google Maps on my Blackberry, so I haven’t felt a compulsion to name a GPS.)
