There's so many models, it's handy to have a comparison chart to figure out what you really want. This seems up-to-date:

Garmin is the best GPS we've owned and we've had several thanks to thieves stealing both of ours at once.

Unless minimal size is REALLY important and you have good eyes I would suggest getting one of the wide models [for the 2x5 models it will have a W in the model name]. These have 4.3" display vs. the 3.5". I think all the 7xx and 8xx series have the larger display.

@msells: I think you're right, but I will say, there have been a few times I've enjoyed carrying the Nuvi around (it has a walking mode) and wouldn't like the wider screen in my pocket.

Good price, but the wide version is a much better product.

This is a great unit. I have one for my little convertible. It has not steered me wrong yet! I actually don't even use the voice nav. I really find that a wide screen does not add anything to your ability to navigate (and I have used the wide one also). Excellent price for a basic unit.

These NUVI's are great gifts for elderly family that still drive. They are great for the non-techies, and the spoken instructions seem in have improved the folks driving. Although, it's a good idea to register and update the maps before gifting to family. You know you'll end up as the dash-top support parental service rep if it's not plug and play.

I've got this very one. It acquires satellites quickly cold or warm, computes routes quickly, fairly easy to use menu, non-qwerty keypad is hard to use with big/cold/clumsy fingers. My biggest gripe is that the routes it tells me to use are sometime VERY odd choices (or downright stupid) ie: Instead of taking the "beltway" interstate (35 minutes) to work it wants me to drive surface streets through town at rush hour (about 90 minutes) in "shortest" or "quickest" route mode. I have also been told to take an exit during an interstate trip and sent through surface streets, just to rejoin the interstate at the next exit.

Decent unit, just has a few quirks. Use wisely and enjoy this entry level unit. Decent additional menu features also (mileage monitor, database, etc)

@msells: i dont know if its because you guys might be a bit on the older side, but ive had a 3.5 inch model for a year or two now and never felt as though the screen wasn't big enough

for 90 bucks, this thing is a steal, it is the same model i bought well over a year ago for 150 bucks and it works like an absolute charm..has never taken me to the wrong place

@dave bug: Thanks for the link.

Found out this model does NOT have street names. Big red flag
