Tom-Tom looks cool. I don't know that it is versatile as the Garmin Family or Magellians for that matter.



I don't know if you have a use for it in other vehicles, but if you do, you should also consider the ease of moving it between vehicles.



I have an older Garmin StreePilot III that I use in Titan and also my Honda motorcycle. It uses solid state memory and not a harddrive like some newer units.



I would suggest you do a Google for comparrisons between units.

I saw a post somewhere that showed a Tom-Tom sitting in the dash tray. It fits perfectly and will stay in place without screws.



That'd be the one I'd get Titan Critter-Titan Critter.

I have a Nextel phone.



There is supposed to be a "GPS Nav" service built into the phone. It's never worked right for me, but I have a friend who used to make deliveries using it and he swore by it.



Speaking of that, it's time to order my new RAZR...

My sis has a Razr and I got to play with it this Christmas. Coupla notes for ya:



The jack where the power plugs in is a mini USB jack. It will connect to your PC. However, you will need some apps and drivers to make it connect to your PC. Two options, buy the programs from Cingular, or do a search for Razr drivers on the net. I found a site that will allow you to download them.



Have fun!



(I'm keeping my Moto MPx220 for a while longer.)

I was curious about that jack, it looked like the MiniUSB connection for my digital camera.



Sorry about the thread jacking!

well guys i did it!! i bought the tom-tom! go700 model. i love it so far. its incredibly easy to use, and all the maps are preloaded onto the hard drive. i will be using the center dash tray primarily, and have a velcro system in place....i'll get some pics tomorrow and post them. it comes with a windshield mount, which i tried. it's ok, but the dash tray just looks better...like it's integrated into the dash.
