I'm looking for a portable touchscreen that's skinny and I can carry around with me that comes with a car adapter. Looking to spend under $200, any recommendations would be awesome!

i have a tomtom one v2 its pretty nice, not sure how small you are looking for and whatnot

259 on amazon, sure you could get it cheaper

I've been looking for one too. Garmin gets good reviews for inexpensive GPS units. You might want to look at the Garmin StreetPilot c330, it has a touch screen and gets great reviews but it's around $240.

I use my Cingular 8125 with iGuidance software + a $80 Bluetooth receiver. If you have a spare PocketPC/Windows Mobile PDA laying around that might be a solution for you. Works great, in fact iGuidance is embedded in a lot of the off-brand GPS units you find in cars. TomTom Navigator is also available for PPC/WM devices, but it's more expensive and a bit harder to configure. I've used both, and while TomTom's maps and POI's are slightly more updated, I like how iGuidance works on my 8125 and it's a breeze to setup and configure. It's much cheaper too in case you buy it.

I want a GPS...want to spend under 200 bucks...any suggestions? I'm open to refurb products

Pioneer Avic-S1. Great little unit with built-in Bluetooth, touch screen, voice guidance, POI database, MP3 Player, etc etc etc.

I have the In-Dash Pioneer Avic-Z1 and it's great! Pioneer does a good job with their GPS line. ;)

Hrmm I'm leaning towards the

Magellan RoadMate 2000


TomTom Go 300

Any comments?

I know for a fact that Magellan makes one hell of a GPS unit. But Tom Toms are good too!

Magellan got a User Review of 7.2 on Cnet


While the TomTom got a very low 5.9

I bought the magellan

Nice. Congrats on your new GPS unit! I can't imagine life before I had GPS in my car.

I'm always getting lost too =P

YOU'RE always getting lost! In April, I was driving from Charlotte North Carolina back to Nashville and somehow merged onto a different interstate outside of Knoxville, TN and ended up in Chatnooga (about 2 hours out of the way)! haha. How stupid was that? 1 month later I bought an in-dash Nav unit!
