    A little O/T but I need a hand held GPS Unit

    Hey guys, my mom is looking for a GPS unit for her car. Yah know one that will stick to the windshield with a suction cup and plug into her cigerette lighter. One that she can move from car to car very easily. I am looking for a good unit that has lots of access points and other features. Basically the best bang for the buck, and it being easy to use would be nice as well seeing how it is for my mom, (my parents already call me at night when they cant figure out how to work their TV). Price is also a factor. They are not looking to spend a grand on some super duper model with all the bells and whistles.
    Thanks,
    Josh

    Take a look at the "GO 300 GPS" it goes for $699, made by the same people that make TomTom for PocketPC.
