Need Help Choosing the Right Portable GPS Unit… October 25, 2006

Posted by Tell it like it TI is! in GPS, Navigation.

OK, the fellow PTIers are trying to get the Sprint text messaging issue resolved, I have another tech issue that I need assistance with.  For the first time in 4 years, I have ordered a vehicle without a factory navigation system.  My original thought was that I would buy an application for the Treo 700w, but with the way things are going, I am not sure how long I will have this phone!!  If any of you have recommendations that fit the budget (I would like to keep it below 700 bucks), let me hear from you.  I could possibly be convinced to pay a little more, but I am not sure who the players are in this game.  Tomtom and Garmin are the only ones that I know.  A lot have the bluetooth phone feature, and I am not overly convinced that I need to play MP3s.  I do want the 3d display, voice directions, and because of my eyesight I need a good, crisp, clear screen (even in sunlight).   Help me out with your recommendations……
