Some important free advice: All the GPS models I've listed above are good units that will serve you well.

* Be cautious of ultra-cheap deals from brands you've never heard of. I recommend sticking with the major brands: Garmin, TomTom, Magellan, and buying from a reputable e-tailer or store with a good return policy. Also, be sure to read the GPSmagazine Buyer's Guide before making your purchase.
