Video what is a good GPS to buy?

I'm not a big techhead, this is probably not the right place to ask this type of question, but what GPS should I get and why?

I've looked at TomTom and Garmin because that's what people have recommened so far. What other brands are worth a closer look?

Thanks.

For all GPS related stuff on your phone I would say Tom Tom.

Garmin, Mio or TomTom if you're looking for car or motorbike navigation alternatives.

I've used a Garmin Nuvi 660 for almost 6 months and I'm loving it. It's very easy to use and very simple to program

Why buy a GPS when you can use one that is absolutely free. Use the sun my friend

What you should do at night? You're supposed to sleep at night so you don't need a GPS hehe

lol Gavin, you're such a wise guy he he.

Sorry guys, I probably should have mentioned that I'm looking for a GPS that I can use in my car. I looked at some reviews this weekend and it looks like the TomTom 730 has everything I need

Unless anyone has a really good reason NOT to get the 730 I think that's the one I'm going to go for.

Good luck with the 730 Patrick. I haven't heard anything bad about the 730 but I love my Garmin.

TomTom is ok, their products are great but their customer service can be a pain from time to time though. Not sure about Garmin.

If you end up with the 730 you get a good product.
