    I have a Garmin and yes its worth the money, just get the address and your ready to go. never have to worry about getting lost and many GPS's have alot of function and memory so they are very usefull.

    PLEASE DO NO TYPE IN CAPS IT MEANS YOUR YELLING. Not trying to be an A-Hole, but we can read lowercase letters just fine.

    That is funny - CAPS = YELL TIME!!=))

    I would like it, never had it, but I am looking at a phone system for each truck so I can track the guys route, no when, where, that truck has been, for how long and see just how tight I can run things.

    Bad thing is I have checked and in my little area of the world - that service is $$$$$$$$$$

    I have one and love it, theyre definetly worth the money now that they're selling them for about $150, i have a Cobra and its awesome. I use it to find addresses and also for trips, just take it out and switch cars is easy.

    i have a garmin nuvi 650, i think its a really good unit. i think the magellan mystro 4040 is also a great unit. i just chose the garmin because of longer battery time.

    I use one for determining the size of yard. One for tracking the guys and making a tighter route. use the garmin rhino when we are on the large props to comunicate and see where every on is at. saves walking.
