well snakes, this subject seems to pop up all the time. My opinion is you can't go past Garmin.

I agree with Phil..I was looking at the Garmin 126 only $10 more then the navman..I am happy with the navman but went this way due to space as the Garmin has a much larger screen. The downside of the Navman is you cant hook it up to the pc but does the same job as the Garmin in all other aspects. However, next time I will not take space into consideration over being able to hook a GPS up to my pc . Oh by the way if you are in Brisbane..Johnny Applseed is the place to buy..you can get software upgrades for free. http://www.ja-gps.com.au/

Without getting into specific makes/models any GPS that can't be downloaded (uploaded) or have software available to support that funtion is a step behind the times.
The data has the value not the black box, without the data a black box is just a black box.
