    This one looks better... ...$30.00 US dollars less expensive. Lots of features for the price, but I cannot speak to the hardware's quality, good luck!

    both look ok, guess it depends if you want a 4.8 or 4.3 inch screen, the pics show it running igo, so if thats what you want give it a try.

    It sounds like you've found what you're looking for. If you're still shopping and you aren't in a hurry, you can look at DealExtreme, they have some larger screens at good prices.

    My Father-in-law just got a 7" screen. It looks like a novelty at first, but he's half-blind, half-deaf and has huge hands, so it works for him.

    Out of these 3, I would go with number 1 because the navigation software appears to be stored on the SD card. This should make hacking the unit or using different GPS softwares more simple.

    Disclaimer:
    If you are good at hacking these types of units, or if you are not at all interested in hacking the unit, then disregard my comment.
