      So I'm in the market for a GPS

      I've looked at TomTom, Gamin, Magellen....

      Anyone out there have a GPS? If so, which one would you recommend?

      Hi Seeker,

      They're all about the same nowadays. Most come with built in maps, so it's a good idea to check the detail on the topo maps. Many are more based on driving and show more road detail than backcountry detail. If you're doing trails and backcountry hiking, the topo maps (treated paper or laminated) you can buy show much more detail and are much wider than the screen of the GPS and make route planning much easier. Most topo maps also show GPS coordinates, so all you would need is a decent GPS with WAAS that can store waypoints every now and then. Depends what you're using it for.

      Let me know if that helped. Feel free to PM me too.

      Pman.

      I'm interested in something to help for my driving. When I was in Germany, I rented a Mercedes with a great navigation system, including a sexy British gal giving me directions.

      It had route planning, voice instructions, dynamic route planning and help getting back on the route.

      Of course that was a $2000 system built into the car. I'm going to have to lower my sights quite a bit. Maybe I will have to get one of those GPS/USB devices and use software on my laptop.

      Try checking a car audio place or if you have an electronics wholesaler, give them a call. I've seen some onboard navigational GPS stuff around where I live for $300 - $600.

      I'd be interested in knowing what you find.
