OK, I need some input (quickly) for a GPS system. We're looking at them and would like to have it by this weekend. My husband wants the Garmin because his son said that's the best. They all looked the same, and in our price range they all seem to do the same thing. If any of you have any experience with one that you like over another, can you give me a little input. Why you do/don't like a particular one?

My sister has a garmin and she love it. We do not have one. I know that costco has them 100 dollars off right now if you members.

We aren't members of Costco - it's about 45 minutes away. But we do belong to Sam's and they have better prices on them than Best Buy. I think we have to have it delivered to get that price though...

So far I have only ran into one and it was to win a Wii. It was one of those that you have to met so many offers in section 1, so many in section 2 and 3. By the time you have done that you have spent 1200 dollars. I do not go for those adds.

I don't have much of a preference, but my husband just bought a TomTom for work and he really seems to love it. He loves the touch screen and ease of navigating the menus. Plus he's able to download different navigator voices so you're not stuck with the standard female robot sounding one :)

My husband is only looking at the Garmin, I though we were trying to compare the different brands to see what we wanted. I think I like the Magellan better though.

I think we have a magellan. It's pretty good but at times it thinks like someones driveway is a road. It also gets confused when it's at a destination and tells you that somehting is on one side of the road and it is really on the oppostie side of the road. I dont usually use the locator to be honest but when you are totally cluelss about how to get somewhere it can come in handy. It aslo tells you the shortest route so it is good to help save on gas prices.

I have heard that some say right when it should be left and the other way around. I just don't know if that's all of them or one in particular.
