    Gps?

    i am looking at getting a gps to use in the car.

    i would love to have most of the options ms streets and trips has.


    the wife is getting tired of having to bring the laptop to use the gps.

    so if you have one or used one and have used streets and trips before what is close to it. i like the poi and having a lot of stops. o and if i dont do something it wants me to it will re do the route for me.

    the tomtom seem like they do most things but i like to hear what others have to say. looking to spend around 200 maybe 250 if it has the right options.

    thanks for the help

    if you're going to want onboard route calculation, garmins consistently score the best in every review I've seen.
    If your browser can't read unicode, you should probably switch!

    Garmin just came out with one that does map updates via satellite. Wicked.

    You get what you pay for in the GPS world.
