Our tentative plan to check out housing in Estrella caused us to bring an ongoing problem to a head. The maps in our car had not been updated since we bought it. The Phoenix area is growing and building new things all the time, so there are many areas where we will be driving on a perfectly real road and it looked like we were driving through an empty field according to the maps. Most of Estrella is very new and many of the houses we looked at were very hard to find as in addition to not being on the Dodge’s maps, we had no T-mobile signal. We’ve been told if we move to Estrella, we will need to switch to Verizon.
