At the moment I'm deciding which brand portable GPS I'll buy for my Camry. So I'm deep into research on the subject. If you do a Google search for "GPS" and "FORUM" you'll find some very lively discussions on all brands of equipment. You might have to be armed with info on the particular format of maps needed for your GPS.

I come from an airline background so I have lots of friends who are dialed into this topic. One of them told me this the other day: current smartphones are surpassing even Garmin when it comes to GPS. Surprise! Who knew.

The whole industry is about to make a major shift in this direction. And some companies will go out of business. So be careful throwing money into hardware.
