Advice on GPS for Italy??

Jump to last reply

Our rental car company in Tuscany will not guarantee availability of a GPS device!

I dont know anything about GPS devices but it looks like we will have to buy one before we go... which one should I get? Garmin or Tomtom? Preloaded Europe maps, or should I download them?

Alternatively, we also have an iPad 2 (3G) and an iphone, but we wont have a data plan there. Can I preload maps onto either of these devices (any particular app?) and if so, is it just as good as using a traditional GPS device??

Leaving in a couple of days... any help is much appreciated!
