Hey
I have just started a new job as a courier and want to invest in a GPS to help me out if I get stuck.
To me they all look the same so which GPS do you recommend?
I dont want to spend anything over $300 and I need it to be up to date and very relaible.

Thanks

I am not sure on the current models so will leave others to comment there. I am a Tom Tom fan myself, I especially like the ability to make (limited) changes to the map yourself, and manage the device easily through the Tom Tom "Home" software on a computer.

Mine is still going strong after 3 years heavy use.

I have used Navman, TomTom and Garmin.
I found the best to be TomTom - best route guidance and ETA.
Just make sure whatever you get comes with decent updates into the future.

Another vote for TomTom. XL250 is a very nice model.

Navman.

My partner has a TomTom, and they are brilliant units.  Far more featured than the TomTom, and they get a GPS fix far quicker.

I'm a sucker for a pretty face interface, so I've always gone with Navman. Maps look far better, and they have bigger, clearer, screens.
