Garmin Garmin Garmin. I have used bith for work and the garmin is by far the best. It has better graphics and easier to update software and maps.

I agree although garmin is usually more expensive it is far superior. I use mine all the time. It is a 2820. You can find great deals on garmin on ebay. Mine new was around 1200 and I got it new for 400 from a garmin dealer on ebay. Good Luck
