Bought the Garmin nuvi for my wife (she can get lost going to the grocery sotre) and she loves it. Occasionally takes a while to acquire satellite, but otherwise, it has been great. A bit expensive, but i would recommend it.

I used one for the first time when I was in Arizona a couple of months ago and it was awesome (came with the rental car for an extra $7 a day). For traveling in an unfamiliar area, these things ROCK. As long as your destination has been programmed, you'll never get lost.

I don't know that I'd purchase one for everyday use, though. Kind of useless if you know where you're going. Unless you're a moron.

My brother has one and likes it. My only personal experience with in-car GPS is with Hertz and their Never Lost setup.

I love mine. It also has restaurants and theaters and things loaded into its little GPS brain. So, you can select "Chinese", for example, and it will show you the way to all the Chinese restaurants along your route.

It's like a little dashboard mounted tour guide.

It does not, however, show you the location of the Chinese spy safe houses. They need to work on that.

I don't know. I buy gas when I need to. I don't really pay attention to the price.

I sell the Garmin stuff, and IMHO the Street Pilot C330 is best bang for the buck.
