Some guidelines would be helpful. Such as how much you're willing to spend. Does it need to be portable, as opposed to fixed within a vehicle? Do you want speech capability? TouchScreen? Marine capability? Turn By Turn?

Otherwise you'll be more confused with everyones idea thrown at you.

Find some in the price range you like and then go to google and type in the model number and review then search.

I have a Garmin 530 and I like it, it talks to me. I checked all over the net for prices and found that I could get one from Ebay, only buy from a powerseller, cheaper than I could find one anywhere else. :thumbsup:

I recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 660 for my father for a road trip from the Midwest to New England, and also in his daily commute.
He thinks it's great, The product has performed great overall. Most of the features worked well. Here are some specs and reviews
It is a solid-performing and versatile GPS device that offers all the navigation basics, tools for the world traveler, Bluetooth, and more. you can look up the deal I used, drop a lot now, only $400
