I've heard great things about both; other than costing more; Im not sure what the Garmin Nuvi gets me:

it's down between

the nuvi 660

and the TomTom GO 910

or the Tom Tom One XL

The Nuvi is awesome. I'd go with that.

I've had the TomTom One for about 6 months. So far, I have very few complaints. It is fast (recalculate directions if you take a wrong turn in about 2 seconds), very easy to use with intuitive menus. Maps are preloaded on the included 1GB SD card. I need to update them, though, because it has me going off roading on some of the new roads in Greensboro, and in the mountains during the 4th.

I have decided to get a TomTom, but gonna wait

there is a new version that comes out at the end of July, it will have the large flat panel used in the one-XL with all the features on the Go910, plus some new community map share programs for speed traps and such.......

lol!


BTW the money that people will dish out for those things is a great down payment to building your own carcomputer. It's very simple and can cost a minumum of about 300-400 dollars. I dunno have you looked into this? if you want there is abunch of info on mp3car.com

Most of them are good. The Magellan units are very similiar to the Garmins just less expensive.. I've used the Maestro4040 and was very impressed. I've used the TomTom One which is nice for the $249 price range.. they're all easy but the Magellan seems easier to operate to me. I'll post up when I get some play time with a Garmin..

Just an update. A co-worker of mine found a great deal on the TomTom 920 which lists for $450. You can buy it from Dell for $270.

I bought a Garmin nuvi 350 for $250 off Amazon and took it to ATL for 4NGIEfest. That thing was AMAZING, I couldn't have managed without it, I don't have a single complaint. I like the text-to-speech (sure beats anything I've had before). Plus, it's so small I can stuff it in my pocket.

I have a nuvi 360i and I LOVE it! It's got bluetooth, so I can talk on my phone with it. I can use it to text, I speak into it and it texts for me....badass. I can check my v-mail with it, anything. Worth the money.

This page doesn't exist this morning so it must have been a one-time good deal.

I need something with built-in European maps and the only ones I can find are the Garmin Nuvi 770 and the TomTom GO 920. It looks to me that if you buy a Nuvi 360i for example and subscribe to receive the European maps, then that's going to be around $300 for the DVD. I'm kinda new to this but it seems smarter to buy the TomTom with 4GB of memory. The Nuvi 770 is way too expensive.

Got a quick question for ya. Do you think that the Garmin Nuvi 200 and the Tomtom one are pretty much the same? I'm looking at buying something cheap for my wife and I don't want to buy something expensive. Can I go wrong buying either one of these?
