Did a search and to my surprise did not find much. <BR> <BR>Looking for a recommendation on a basic portable navigation system that will alternate between 2 vehicles. Would like to spend just a few hundred if possible. <BR> <BR>Models/reviews/place of purchase would be much appreciated!!

I used a Garmin c330 (now c340 I think) for awhile. It was basic but did everything I ever needed it for. It had all of the normal features - searches, mph, time to destination, voice directions, etc. The suction cup window thing stuck extremely well and made it easy to switch between vehicles (or snap free for hand-held). You can find one for $200-250 (also at Walmart).

I have the Garmin 350. It is great, very accurate and has a bunch of features I don't use such as MP3 playback, picture playback and world wide maps. The thing I love about it is that it is rechargeable, so you don't have to take the plug with you when switching between cars. It is so accurate that you can literally walk around with it if you are in a city like San Francisco. I received it this last xmas as a gift and they bought it from Amazon.com for $350, but prices might have dropped.

we have a TomTom Go portable unit, paid $150 for it during Christmas season. Great unit, no complaints. It's got a small screen, but other than that, it blows away the factory nav in our '02 beemer as well as the factory nav in our '07 Denali...for $150!

Thanks for all the input guys. Just ordered the Garmin 360 off Amazon for less than $240 shipped!
