I love the Garmin I bought for my wife (I use it occasionally).I believe it was one of the bottom of the line ones (Nuvi 200 I think). I bought it brand newfor $160 (discounted from $250) on "Black Friday" last year at Best Buy.
I did a thread on it last year but I can't remember what it was titled. I heard not to get a Tom Tom though. One member was not very satisfied with his and got rid of it. I have heard nothing but good things about Garmin. It is super easy to operate.

I have a garmin nuvi 200w. very user friendly. only had a few issues with it(once was not updated maps, construction had just been done there). then once i put in to take me to the nearest mcdonalds and it took me to some random persons house.and a few times it will think i'm on a road i'm not(like a interstate i am under or near), this is normally when my car is parked and the unit has been off and i turn it on when i am ready to go

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 660 last summer, and I am very happy with it. They (Garmin) were and still are the highest rated GPS units by Consumer's Reports Magazine. They are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for...
The current issue of Consumer's Reports happens to have ratings on several GPS units, Garmin, Tom Tom, Magellan, Mio, Harman Kardon, etc.
Best overall pick for the Money:
Garmin Nuvi 660 and 670

Best Buy:
Garmin Nuvi 350 and 260

And no, I do not work for Garmin!

BTW, it was smaglik who said he had issues with his Tom Tom. Maybe he will provide some details if you ask him.
