Garmin or TomTom

I am looking for a gps unit and I think I have it narrowed down to a Tom Tom one or a Garmin Street pilot c330. Does any one have any opinions about either of them?

I'd say Garmin...soley b/c I HATE the durn Tom Tom commercials. That, and Garmin has been around for a little longer and has a better track record.

They claim the Garmin gets you down to a 10 foot section of accuracy, and the Tom Tom is about 25 feet. Is that 15 feet going to make a big differance? Thats up to you. I use a Garmin 3??. I forget the numbers, but it works great. So If you want to be in the cool guy group.....get the Tom Tom LMAO!!!

I have the Garmin c330 and it simply WORKS... No other way to put it.... Garmin has been around much longer then Tom Tom and longer then most others for a reason....

Just my $.02....

One feature the tom has is the ability to preview your route, does the Garmin offer this as well? I cant find anywhere that it says it does. The tom also says you can pick an alternate route. Garmin? I think the Garmin looks like a better unit but I like those two features.

Garmin it is. I stepped up to the C530, big brown truck brought it yesterday. I havent played with it too much yet but it looks like a pretty fun gadget. Thanks for all of the input.
