That is belly-ache number one.

"Not sure about Garmin"

  • Pros: Read lots of reviews and this was the best value at the time. Easy to use. Could not get FM transmitter to work to listen to it via car. Easy to use.
  • Cons: Slow satellite acquisition. Between 1 min to 10 mins.

  • Pros: Simple to use and has all the basics
  • Cons: Fragile case, Map errors, Direction sometimes make you turn the wrong way, and first map upgrade has to be paid for even if present one is out dated when purchased.
