Re: GPS Help
I've had mine since May, got it for the new job.
I nabbed a Garmin for 100 bux on Craigslist.
Ended up needing to update the maps a few weeks later, but overall, the main names in the game are Garmin, Magellan & TomTom .
They are all aboutu equal. right now, Tigerdirect.com has specials on a few different models, some are refurbs, some are new old stock of the last model being dumped to make room for the new bad boy.
With the new ones, you usually have a year to nab the free map update.
Big issue is, figure out if you need the fancy speech recognition, text to speech, etc. if you need a base model where you plug in your destination and go, you can get a great unit on the cheap.
