Smile aftermarket GPS laptop or other??

Hello everyone,

I drive my benz everyday sometimes 200 miles. Anyways I am always using my mapbook and wanted another tool in my car.

What is your opinion on Magellen, Garmin, cellphone with GPS and/or a laptop with microsoft street and maps GPS installed?

What is the most acurate and based on your experience using GPS what do you recommend?


Thanks for any input. Pictures of your setup in your car would be nice.

Thank you,

Floyd

$150 off at Costco.com 11/20-11/28 $549 is a steal

http://www.costco.com/ search for Nuvi

I hate the tangle of wires and cables needed to run a laptop setup unless it is hard wired into a stand in an offroad racer.

Talking thanks dave

Thanks for the tip on Costco.com

I will buy one from them. I know they have a great return policy and with 150 off that sounds like a deal.
