I am part of the reason they sell GPS for cars.

i am, too. i got lost ALL THE TIME and when we moved to boston, we bought a GPS. it's not 100% reliable? but i'd say about 90%. and it's really awesome. like "lesse. click food...mexican...ok, there are 10 mexican restaurants within 3 miles of here. let's pick..this one..*click* *go*" :D

90% reliable is about 85% more reliable than I am without it.  =P

see that's my philosophy. my boyfriend wants to throw it out the window every time it's wrong. but honestly it's been so RIGHT most of the time that i still love it :D

I need to get one.  Now that I have a car that's not super crappy and has a working cigarette lighter, I'll buy one.  Suggestions? =D

What is your price range? i know they've gotten cheaper since i looked - Mine is a model up from <a rel=nofollow href="/mod/discuss/bounce.php?">this one</a> and we paid over $900 for it :P and i bet you could even find it cheaper somewhere online.

they are a bit pricey for the touch-screeny talking ones. but you do at least want one that talks.

<a rel=nofollow href="/mod/discuss/bounce.php?">here</a> is a TomTom model that is $100 cheaper than the garmin, even on bestbuy. i bet amazon or even ebay might have one - but i'd be wary of a used one. even mine flakes out at times (usually needs to be reset or to be plugged into the wall and recharged to full inside before it'll work again).

they're an investment, but worth it if you drive a lot.

No price range, I want a good one if I have to hold off for a couple months to be able to afford it.
I was looking at the Garmin ones last month as it's already a brand I have bought plenty of times for myself and as gifts. =)  I'd like the talky kind as I tend to be the obsessively attentive driver and would likely end up not using it if I had to look at it often.

well i have the garmin c350 i think? 350c? i'm not an expert, but any newer one you get is gonna be cheaper and more up to date - which is important :) read some reviews online. i bet you could get a really good one for around $500 if you look right!

Awesome.  Thanks! =)
