I was in West Marine on "Black Friday" and they were having a special on the
Garmin 355w for $119.95 (try to beat that!)I have played around with it in
my home territory and have found that it quite consistently chooses the
route if usually travel. If you do "go home" and decide to go "off route" to
pick up some milk it will annoy you with "recalculating" until you get back
on track....I also order the topographical chip for the central plains
states (I know that somebody is saying, "Why do you need a topographic chip
for the central plains? There is no topography there!)because when we are at
the ranch during the summer we are regularly on township roads ("road" is
sometimes being kind)that don't have real names......they are often just
referred to as "the road to so and so's place" I am anxious to see how this
feature works....

Looking for recommendations for a portable
GPS system for our cars.  Needs to be portable
and self-powered because we'd probably use
it during our antique car tours as well as with
our daily drivers.

Any direct experience regarding brands (Garmin,
Magellan, TomTom, etc.) and desired features?
Christmas time is drawing near<grin>
