I plugged mine into my computer once I got home then erased all the files. I use it as a back up stick. It's got lots of memory on it.

If you go to google maps, plug in avoid tolls, and it will take a little over 5 hours. If you plug in avoid tolls and highways, it shows a little over 6 1/2 hours.

For dinner, I would recommend the Augustiner Keller or one of the Augustiner restaurants downtown. There's one a block or so from the HBH. Augustiner is the best beer in Munich.
