    There's a nice Garmin or Tom Tom on eBay's daily deals almost daily. Usually the best price on one anywhere. I'd go Garmin Nuvi.

    What WIZ said.

    The Nuvi has different models, but easy to check out what might fit your needs.
    I promise I won't do it again

    I have a portable Garmin for my Buick. It has been great for years.

    My Bride has it built in for the Sorento and it's brutal. The Service manger told me to hold off till the fall when the new software will be available. Cripes, it's only a year old!

    We've got a Magellan Roadmate and like it. At least to me, it seems like the menu and address inputs are more intuitive than Garmin and Tom Tom units.

    I've had a Garmin Nuvi for about 3 years and it's great, I work in construction so I use it constantly for job sites, places for lunch, and Home Depot's. The suction cup is what I use for a mount and I agree it's a bit better than 50/50 on getting a good one, if I get a bad one they are like $10 on Amazon so I order another.

    I use navigator on my phone. Works great and talks to me just like a regular GPS.

    Yeah, it's like $10 per month. I don't use it very often, so I activate it for a month if I think I'm going to need it (vacation, etc) then cancel.
