Buying a GPS Unit 
If you know someone that travels a lot, a GPS is a perfect companion. In fact, GPS can be extremely handy, especially if you find yourself lost in concrete woods. GPS can help you avoid roads that have been closed for maintenance, or even find a quick way around work that is being performed along your route. Today GPSs are rich with features. Some of the top features to look for when purchasing a GPS are: Bluetooth, SD Card Expansion Slot, Large Point of Interest (POI) Database, Speedy Performance Record, Easy to use Interface, Built-in Maps, and Text to Speech (TTS). Also look for GPS with easy to use interface. Some of the top brands in GPS are TomTom, and Garmin.

Re: Buying a GPS Unit 
I have a TomTom and I love it! My only gripe is that it sometimes sends me on circuitous routes. I usually use the TomTom and map in tandem. My process is to look at the map and see the best route to go, then I punch my destination into the TomTom. If the TomTom takes me too far out of my way I'll go with my original plan.

Garmins the best but I didn't think you could "sell" on this site.

Re: Buying a GPS Unit 
I've never had or used a GPS Unit before. What makes Garmins the best? And are GPS Units worthwhile?

Re: Buying a GPS Unit 
If you travel a lot as I do, a GPS is very handy for not only directions but for gas, shopping, restaurants, etc.. Simply key in the name of what your looking for and it will show you where it is and how to get there. No more need for mapquest or a map.
