Brother has got a Navman and it's pretty good. Can't comment on the Tom Tom though (except for their really annoying adverts here in the uk!)

I'm a salesman and of any electroninc device I have ever owned, my gps gives me the most pleasure

I don't have a recpmendation on either, I use something dell signed on with and added on to my pocket pc which you might want to look into, will save you a few hundred dollars and I believe it's faster due to more sophisticated hardware

check into that

i don't have a pocket pc and my laptop is a widescreen 17", so too big to use in the car for gps.

which gps sells well at your store?

TomToms are best sellers in my store, partly because of the ease of use and pretty good display, not to mention the larger screen than most other products. I've not seen a functional navman so far, but it too seems to be a pretty decent product.

One thing that bugs me the most about TomTom systems is that probably 70% of customers come back complaining that their unit is faulty when all it is is that the system has crashed. ie. not powering up. However, it's simple to fix - just press the reset button (need a paper clip or pin though).

EDIT: TomTom are introducing new add-ons for the car... Don't know if I'm allowed to mention them, but it's similar to the iTrip (if you catch my drift).

i'd catch your drift if i knew what you where saying! :)

one thing i don't like about tom tom and this is just from looking at the screenshots is that the image looks really jagged, the other garmin navman etc... look a lot more smooth. is this true?

i also don't think its acceptable for a unit to keep on crashing, no matter if all you need to do it reset it.

Not sure about the images since I've not seen the other products running.
I know it's a pain having to reset the unit when they freeze, but the question is, do the other products have a similar problem? I can't answer that one coz I've not used one before. :)

I'd go with the NavMan.
I've got one and its great.
very accurate and the quality is great.
Like Khayman, i have not used the TomTom so...
