Garmin is the best. I have 3 of theirs and one is about 13 years old. You should go to www.gpscity.com also check out Garmin's website.

I have a tom tom Rider 2 - $650. Has lots of bells and whistles. I like it and it got me around the country.

One thing i hate about it is i can't make a route in Microsoft Streets and Trips software and upload it to the damn thing. You can make a route in the GPS but it is time consuming.
