    Google maps, and the Garmin GPS are two entirely different programs.

    While the new Google maps will give you "directions", it does not give you turn by turn navigation and other features of a true GPS navigation program.

    Personnally for GPS, I prefer TeleNav (over Garmin), and I also use Google Maps for other things.

    Yeah, as he said, you have to see for yourself.

    BTW, the Garmin GPS is now available for a one-time $99, vs. the monthly fee.

    I still prefer TeleNav, and $9/month is worth it to me to have current map data etc.

    I have it and use it often on my 8310. I have had several Garmin GPSs over the last few years so I went with it. It is just like their GPS units' displays, clear and very usable.

    I was surprised at how well it receives the GPS signal inside the car. I thought I would have to hold it up by the window, but it sits in the cup holder and navigates fine.

    I haven't used the others so I can't compare, but I am total satisfied.

    I gues as mentioned, its different strokes for different fokes. Garmin is great for me as I have never had an issue with it.
