Talking GPS

What's everyone using?
I'm looking to buy one. But I would prefer real world use and not have to rely on reading the outside of a box/web cite to make my Purchase.

X2 -- I actually have both a Garmin Nuvi and Tom Tom -- I love my Garmin -- Got it off ebay cheaper than any where else -- but it was not black friday -- you might want to wait and see. We have both the 200 and 350 and love them both -- alot of great features!

P.S. Tom Tom SU*KS!!!!

It's for the wife and needs to be user friendly. But, I know she will let me use it.
I didn't even have Walmart in mind but thanks Jeff.
For myself, I would like it to have A GPS that tells you where you are and tell you your turn is coming up. Voice command would be cool. Creating points/location would be cool to pin-point trails. Some kind of removable memory card would also be cool to have.
Just some of the features I would Like it to have.

Thanks Michelle. Tom Tom would of been a brand to consider.

I have the 750 nuvi I believe. It lets you store way points pretty easy and is pretty user friendly once you get it figured out. I have a few trails in CO. stored on it right now.

Mike that is everything my Garmin does -- and it is very user friendly!! Dan is not a "computer" person -- he loves the Garmin -- stores all kinds of trails he has been on. I would suggest finding someone you know who has one and look at it. For the money all the Garmins I have seen do everything you have asked for and then some -- stores pictures, music, tells you where you are going, how far your turn is, the street you are turning on, etc.

the more exspensive ones will say the street names but cheaper ones like mine just say turn left in 50'. but once you use them for a little bit youll get the hang of it. mines taken me to vegas and minnesota.

I've got a factory one in my dodge and it will tell you to turn left when you are on a 50ft tall overpass!!!! If you don't keep them updated they are worthless.

The tom tom I got for my wife is pretty easy to use and can be updated online. For the 125 bucks I paid for it I can't complain much.
