GPS for your car...

Who has them and what kind do you have? We are looking to get one for my dad because he drives a lot. He used to have one with his laptop with his old job. Let me know what you think of the ones you have.

Thanks

MTD66 on the board, bought a garmin nuvi 200

It was 200 bucks and the thing is badass. It has all the options... saved locations, restaurants, banks, fast food, etc, etc.

I believe you can update it via USB cord to your computer. It has a 3" touchscreen and it's windshield mounted.

I'm thinking about getting this one for my parents

I have an Alpine Blackbird, but only because I have a compatible Alpine head unit.

No, I like it a lot. The first gen was a piece, but the new one kicks ass, and it mounts right inside my head unit. But I would not pay several hundred bucks for one as a stand alone. In fact, I wouldn't even have navigation if it didn't integrate smoothly into my system.

I got a MIO DigiWalker c320 from Radio Shack on Black Friday for about half price ($139). I like it alot at that price, but I don't think it is worth the full price. They are nice, but there are alot of new streets around here that haven't been integrated in the software. This makes getting around some neighborhoods hard at times. The unit tells me to go a very strange way sometimes. Other than that, I really like it.
