I'm going on a trip thursday and I need a to install my GPS receiver by then (I wanna impress the girls who are coming).. we are going to visit some friends at other colleges... What i want to know is where can i purchase a good gps receiver locally?? Checking the bestbuy site, they dont seem to have anything decent and circuit simple is lacking.. Anywhere else I'm overlooking, and what reciever should I go with??? Thanks all.

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..
I live in NH, near you in boston, and ordered an OEM GPS mod from http://www.navtechgps.com/supply/gps15LH.asp it arrived two days after I ordered... but... your kinda running out of time if you choose online ordering..

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.
It is in providence but if my memory serves me correctly thats like a 30 minute drive
