I recommend garmin, not perfect, but they are head and shoulders above the rest for a reason. The most choice in units, and the map data is best supported.
The secret to getting a deal on a garmin is to find a 'refurbished' unit of a just discontinued or about to be discontinued model, or a model with a garmin rebate. Right now (thanksgiving weekend ) GPS Central gpscentral.ca has the nuvi 550 on for $200 ,,,this is Canada , may not work for you, but look around for that same deal in the US, you will find it or better. Great unit, just about to be discontinued. I wanted to buy it, but took a cold shower and got over it, as I have three garmin gps units already.
