My sister and brother both have navigation units and its pretty handy, so I'm thinking about getting one. I think they both have Tomtoms, should I go for that or do you have any suggestions?

Consumer reports have Garmin's at the top of the "Best rated GPS's" list.

I have a Garmin, probably 4 year old unit, a Nuvi 205, really functions well. We have several friends who have TomToms and all are pleased with them, but it is hard to beat Garmin when it comes to navigation aids, they have been at it longer than most anybody else. I would keep pounding the sale offers, sometimes you can find Garmins really cheap. Somewhere between $90 and $110 should get you a unit with way more stuff than you need. Make sure it has the "Lifetime Map".

I prefer the gps on my phone. Gps on any smart phone is the same and it's already covered in my data plan on my iPhone 4 and was when I had the I3 as well and my sons phone is not an iPhone but a smart phone and is loaded with the same gps system.

Smart phone???

I prefer the gps on my phone. Gps on any smart phone is the same and it's already covered in my data plan on my iPhone 4 and was when I had the I3 as well and my sons phone is not an iPhone but a smart phone and is loaded with the same gps system.
I was about to say the same thing. The GPS on my 'smart' phone is pretty accurate and there are quite a few navigation apps out there for you to chose from.

My $.02 worth.

I have to agree as well. Many phones like the android and iphone allow you to upgrade your maps as well for free. I believe that you have to pay to upgrade your tom tom year to year. With your android everything that google maps gets and updates you get as well
