I have a hand held I use for hunting/Fishing but I gotta have one of these auto GPS. E-Bay is full of them. Which one would work? as far as being updated to be usable for a few years. Garmin Nuni 200, 200W, 360, 660, street Pilot C550, ? the list goes on and on. would the cheap 200 mod. work fine? It's the cheapest.:evil:

How do you want to use it? Need Bluetooth? Want to set up routes? just point A to B? There are a ton of options out there.... try to decide what options you "NEED" it to do then "WANT" it to do and then match them to your budget. Can take a while to decide...good luck..

Are you going to replace your hand held with the auto-routing unit? The only hand held that I know of w/auto routing is the Garmin 60Csx. If you want one only for the road, the Lowrance Iway 600C is the absolute best! (No battery, only 12vdc input on the 600C). Do ANY of the Nuvi's leave a bread-crumb trail? I have the 650 and it does not drop points on the screen as you go along. This feature is desirable in the woods and on the water, if that is your intended use for the new unit. I used to use an old Garmin 76s (mono screen) but now have one of the $129.00 Ifinder Expedition C's on order. You might want to consider that one feature (trail/bread crumb). The street Pilot C550 is only $179.00 at pcnation.com

I bought a 650 garmin - I like it. its the older style with the flip up antenna, it has a longer battery life than the new 700 series does..

I have the 200 and love it...don't know what the others offer, but I can't imagine needing to much more.
:yeahthat: I have a Nuvi 200W. It doesn't have all the "bells and whistles" of the more expensive Garmins, but it gets me from point A to B.
