    Reb you can move any of them from one car to another they just plug in cig lighter recptical. As far as a good one I don't know what's best. I have a Garmin and like it.

    You can spend about as much as you want on them....some do live traffic updates, some have mp3 players....

    I'd just buy the cheapest that shows you street/road names and gives you turn by turn directions. Don't spend too much money in my opinion. One thing to look for is how much updates cost.....I bought the cheapest one that gives turn by turn directions but it didn't come with any update so when it gets out of date (which it already has to some degree) I have to pay 70 bucks to update it. It might be that you can spend just a bit more than I did and get a free update...not sure you'll need to research some.

  5. I've got a tom tom and a guy at work has the garmin. The garmin is definately the better of the two.

    I believe the Garmin Etrex is a handheld GPSr and not one for the car.

    If you have an iPhone, I would get Navigon. I have it and love it. IMO much better than a stand alone gps. A lot of addresses I tried to look up with my Nuvi and in my wife's GM gps wouldn't work. I can Google an address with Navigon and it come up with it everytime. It has text to speech and reroutes super fast.

    I just use my iPhone and Google Maps. It puts me within 30' of where I am. I like it and it's free!

    Garmin. Had a tomtom before and the garmin is better. I forget what the feature is called but it will zoom in on what lane you need to be in on large freeways. It was a lifesaver when working and traveling in southern california.:02:
