    You can pick up a fairly decent gps new for relatively short money. And when you do I reccomend buying one that comes with free updates for life. I love my Magellean but the cost to update the damn maps could just about get me a new unit

    Re: WTB - Car GPS

    Honestly i use the Google Nav on my smart phone. the best part is that i can use it in the car and when im on the bike just throw an earbud in my ear under my helmet and get turn by turn directions right into my ear while im riding. no looking down at a screen or directions taped onto my tank. not the cheapest option but i have found it to be pretty versatile for multiple applications. just my .02

    I do the same thing but use another I Phone app. Battery life is an issue though.

    I have an iPhone and have used plenty of the GPS apps. I still haven't found one that could replace a true GPS device though.

    Thats my GPS app of choice...but its still pretty frustrating at times. The voice signals to turn are pretty off most of the time and cause a lot of confusion. Some of the directions they load are questionable as well. Also drains the battery rapidly which causes me to keep it plugged in on my lap which is a safety concern of mine having to constantly look down. Plus forget about trying to talk on the phone while using the app.

    eBay's Daily "Deal Blast" has the Garmin 2360LMT for $135 so I scooped it up.

    Couple hours left if you want it at that price....
