Default TOM, TOM, TOM, TOM...............????



Hi Guys,

Will need an in-car navigator for the upcoming US road trip. I have a big US road atlas but I might get into trouble off the freeways.

So which one is good? My little mate TOM-TOM? Garmin? Don't want to spend too much as I will sell the unit prior to leaving the US. Plus places to buy one in Los Angeles would be handy. Or do I just go to WalMart?

How about renting one with the car rental company?

Get a land sea model and use it when you return.

I'd lean toward Garmin either way.

I would go with the Garmin. We are very happy with our C340.

I bought my wife the Garmin 330 and she loves it. She is a marketing rep and was always calling me asking directions and now she can show me how to get around the upstate of SC.

These are as good as the GPS on a boat

Thanks guys. Looks like Garmin.

123, I am renting for some 80 days & the charge per day is $10. So cheaper to buy one.
