Which GPS to get?

After I saw my friend's GPS I was hooked. From the reviews it looks like
TomTom is the best but I wanted to get some feedback first. They have an on
dashboard model & a PDA model. Seems the PDA would be more convenient,
versatile & easier to move to another car. Any recommendations? I have a 93
9000CSET, manual. Thanks.

Re: Which GPS to get?

I'll second that. I just got an I5. It holds satellite signals very well.
(The Garmin 2620 and Magellan 700 didn't do well, and were constantly
resetting the route.) The I5 has batteries for out of the car nav. You can't
store routes but setting up a route is so easy if you have saved
destinations in your favorites list. The voice, turn by turn, directions are
excellent but it doesn't say street names.

Re: Which GPS to get?

I have TomTom on a PDA and a friend has a TomTom Go 500 dash mount unit.
TomTom is brilliant. If I have a complaingt about it it is only that it will
always try to re-route you on to the original route if you go off course
whereas my old Garmin GPS V used to recalculate the entire route. Both have
their pros and cons though. The TT method makes rerouting very quick
compared to recalculating the entire route, but sometimes a recalculated
route can be more efficient.

If the Garmin has any advantage at all its in its out of car use. TT is
hopeless if you try to use it for navigating away from roads (while out
mountain biking for example).

For me I prefer TT over the Garmin though as it is more intuitive, and (on a
PDA) you get more than just a SatNav system.
