Garmin RV 660, I did not want the larger screen of the RV 760 or 770. Works great much better than Magellan or tom tom from personal experience.

Everyone has their preference, but I like the Magellan RV9365t. Haven't had any mis-direction, height, or any other issues with it in 6 years. Easy updating too.

CW has it on sale for $249.47 this week.

I had the Garmin RV 660 in my Amazon wishlist and got a notice about exclusive prime members only $100 off. Just ordered it for $233. If your prime member it may be worth the look. I'll post a review of it as soon as I get it.

We use Google Maps on our iPhones. Never has failed us yet. If you're looking for more info other than directions, then Garmin units are good.
