GPS question

3 posts in this topic

I am going to get my wife a GPS for mothers day. She will only use it for driving, I have been thinking of a TomTom. I want to keep the purchase price around 100. She will want something that is simple to use, and does not have a ton of bells and whistles.

What brand/model would you buy?

I know you said you wanted to keep it around a $100. I have a Garmin NUVI 1200 and love it. Being from the great white north, I can't find a mcdonalds in the cities(not quite that bad but) This garmin talks to you and you don't even have to take your eyes off the road. I love the (in .7 miles turn left hwy 64) Just my .02 cents. Oh and they are $199

I have the Garmin StreetPilot c550, and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. I had a friend who had a TomTom, and he doesn't like it. My SteetPilot was $168.

My StreetPilot has just about everything - Maps, turn by turn directions, BlueTooth for my cell phone, Live Traffic updates, etc. About the only thing I don't like is that is doesn't tell me what elevation I am at, which can be important when you are pulling something at elevation.
