When we used maps on road trips, and no that's not Google maps...

Something people born after 2000 have never and will never experience.

when MapQuest was a thing? when MySpace was a thing?
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

14.4 kps ?
Didn't really have 4800 baud. Went from 2400 baud to 9600 baud.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

...a caller ID was a separate machine, and needed its own jack to display the callers info...

This was a must-have item:


With its whopping 8MB of memory ;D

Got mine on black friday 2001 for $99 IIRC.
If the battery died you lost all your data. Luckily it had great desktop backup capabilities, something that Android still lacks.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
