I am looking to buy a gps for my car. I have been looking at the Mio C220 and the Garmin Nuvi 350.
Has anyone had any experience with either, and are there any others you would recommend? :dunno:

I've owned a Garmin nuvi 350 since 11/05 and think it's great. You should also consider the nuvi 650.

Hope this helps...JL

I like the nuvi 350, and the 650 is out of my price range at the moment.
Ihave also been looking @ the TomTom one, I just have to find a place locally where I can play around with them.

I have a english springer spaniel and don't think I could handle another dog. :rofl:

Magellan has a portable that you can get traffic updates on. I use mine for POI's instead of the Nav system in the car. My Springer Spaniel could find his way home from anywhere as long as his treats were there.

Mine came with the Blackberry 8800 I recently got.
cingular/att&t - the use telenav.

unlimited searches is I think $10/mo. Best part is it's company paid, accountant sends in the bill. :thumbup:

iPAQ rx5915. Uses Tom Tom Navigator 6 and is a Pocket PC to boot with WiFi, Bluetooth, Word, Excel, Internet Explorer and lots of other goodies. I use it as a GPS system and to check email on the road at any place with free wifi.

Beats lugging my laptop for short trips.

My friend in the Netherlands is Beta test coordinator for Tomtom she gave me a Tomtom GO720 to test, pretty cool navigation tool, I'm still exploring this one but you get live traffic info and you can speak to it to give the address you are looking for...:thumbup:

I bought the TomTom 720 and returned it within 3 days. Hard to set up and seemed very crude compared to the NAVI I have in my Benz.

Garmin 200W (4.3" wide screen) for basic nav and points of interest. It was approximately $200, has a great windshield mount, and the interface is very simple to use.
