I haven't personally used a Goldfinder GPS, but they are rubbish according to the Consumer test.

There is a report here, but you need subscriber access to view it:

I don't currently have this, but saw a copy of the report earlier when they had it available for free preview.

Recommended brands are TomTom, Navman and Garmin.
