Hi I'm intending to buy a new GPS in my new car. Do you guys have any good suggestion? Among these functions, which are the ones most useful? Bluetooth and IPOD support, TV function, size of the screen? And what kind of GPS are you using? I use to buy DVD player from www.spam.com. Until now it's works well. And I'm also considering this one http://www.spam.com. Is it good? Or do you have any other suggestion? Many thanks in advance!

I have a double din kenwood in-dash unit with Garmin GPS and I love that thing... it works fantastic and it's really easy to use.... some other functions in the unit leave some to be desired... not bad over all.
the fiancee also has a tom tom ONE which works pretty well but I prefer the Garmin
back when GPS units were hella-expensive I bought a Garmin GPS USB adapter and ran a couple of different applications on my laptop.
"Street Atlas" was the worst ap I've ever used... but "Roads and Trips" was really good.
I have a Jenson DVD screen unit in my Vehciross and they make a GPS add-on unit for it... I'm a little worried about spending the money on it because it's a pretty cheap unit and isn't all that great.

Garmin is the only way I'll ever go. Owned a nuvi 260w and loved it. Insanely accurate and simple right out of the box. Thought I'd try a navigon because of it's lane assist, it had more up to date maps (garmin had however released a map update so big deal here) but the biggest pain is that the numbers to type in are so damn small they require a stylus or skeleton fingers and it tries to guess everything your typing (a supposed convenience) which translates into, if it can't guess it, it will lock you out from typing further. I found 1 out of 15 addresses over a 1 weeks time span. Needless to say I shipped that POS straight back for a refund. I'll be upgrading to a garmin wide screen with lane assist later this month.
