I would go with any brand which has Nav N GO 8 as software - it's just so better then other IMO

I found the tomtom much easier to use when I was first shopping around.

I personally like TomTom's maps and easy to view features. I also thought it easier to use than the Navman unit I received for review.

I assume you have been to a shop and actually played with them all before purchasing one...

I'm looking at a GPS upgrade too, I'm presently using a Navman S35 which seems to do the job but I've found it "locks up" occasionally and reboots itself.
I'm tossing up spending $150 on a 2009 map upgrade or go for a new unit. I don't find Navman's website that good for updates.
The new Navmans that are out, from the photos I've seen the maps look really tidy.

Similar to above I'm looking for spoken street names and one that is good for driving on the motorway.
