        well garmin has been a trusted name with respect to GPS for years now, but I have no experience with that particular product.

        Search for some reviews..

        edit: you could always pick one up for now and return it once you get back from your road trip..

            garmin 18 is good, but you can find them $80-90 online so the walmart one is a little expensive. Also if you do get it, make sure you get the serial version, NOT the usb. usb version uses proprietary garmin format while serial is standard NMEA data.
