    I'll second esetter, my Garmin 340 works great, even took me to a house on a two-track road in the middle of nowhere. Easy to use, to view, and listen to.
    Can't beat the price either.

    I've never had a car GPS but have used a lot of hand helds. I wouldn't buy another GPS that didn't have a high sensitivity receiver. Maybe some of the guys with experience with the auto units can chime in on their value. I'm guessing that if you're in an area with a lot of buildings they would help much like they do when your under tree cover. And I'm certain the best "sales" will be on the older units without the HS receivers.

    I bought a Tom Tom and hated it. Bought a Garmin and have been very happy. The Tom Tom does not give the upcoming street names, is difficult to program and use. The Garmin is a snap. Jake

    I use to work in a marine supply store. We also sold a few auto GPS. Garmin pretty much has every other company blown away by their functionality, ease of use, price and customer service. Both my fishfinder and GPS on my boat are garmin. I would highly recommend them no matter what unit you choose, you can't go wrong.

    I bought a nuvi 350 and find it to be an absolute super unit. My daughter and son-in-law just got a nuvi 750 and think it is a great unit, prices are down now is the time to buy, very easy to use.

    I have owned a half dozen Garmin products and they are excellent. I recently purchased a Lowrance 600C because it has a much larger screen. It has much better built in maps than my Garmins and cost a lot less. The 600C gives you a choice of auto mapping mode, off road mode and marine mode. It has built in road mapping, mapping for fresh water fishing and marine mapping, even some satellite photos or some areas. After getting used to the differnces between Garmin and Lowrance I prefer the Lowrance due the much better map displays. I bought mine on sale for about $250.

    I have a Garmin 340 and I don't leave home without it. I work part time delivering flowers on holidays and the Garmin is a terrific unit to help finding addresses.
    I used to drive with the road map in one hand and the stering wheel in the other before I bought my Garmin.
