tom tom one or the pioneer unit are good and probably the cheapest out there. the pioneer unit has bluetooth so you can use your cell phone hands free in your car

Look at the Mio C220 from Circuit City. I read tons of good reviews, but none that are motorcycle specific.

Im glad you asked, Im about to get a new 4Runner...
do you think aftermarket NAV's are better than OEM's?

thanks

there is a Tomtom for sale in the classified section for $255
I have a Garmin and I like it a lot but it's kind of small making it hard to read

the new 4runner nav is really nice because it incoporates blue tooth and hands-free. however, recent studies have shown that vehicles with OEM nav systems depreciate faster than vehicles without them. i.e. a new OEM equipped vehicle will cost 2000-2500 more than it's non-OEM equippped counterpart, but 3 years down the road, it will only be worth 500 more than it's non-OEM equipped counter.



I have a tomtom go 910 in my 4runner and i love it. although it isn't the most accurate. street names and everything is fine, but occasionally it's location will be off by a few yards, making the unit think i'm on a different road, because it's maps aren't properly sync'd w/ GPS position. i.e. it will think i'm on the feeder, when i'm actually already on the freeway.
