Portable GPS Recommendations

Jump to last reply

My wife & I will be driving in England for 3 weeks this fall. Our driving trip will take us from London down to Portsmouth, then to Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, the Midlands, the Cotswolds, Yorkshire, and back to London before returning to the US.

Sometime around 2008/9, I bought a Garmin Nuvi 255w GPS (SatNav) to use in a rental car in Canada and later in England, Scotland, & Wales. It worked fine but I haven't used it in the past 2 1/2 years. I imagine I can update the maps in the 255w but I know that model was discontinued some years ago.

Do any of you have any experience with some of the newer GPS models? Consumer Reports has reviews of the current GPS models available and the newer Garmin units are highly rated. I'm trying to decide whether to replace the one I have or just go with it again?

Thanks for your input.
