    FAQ POLL: What is the best GPS Receiver?

    This thread is similar xBrady's 'best Front-end' thread. It is only going to show the popularity of the various GPS units available. This could be helpful for new members, since a make/model of GPS is popular for a reason....

    If there are other GPS units you feel should be added to the list, I can't. The poll is limited to ten entries. However, please choose OTHER and post your setup so newbies can see what options are available!

    I have a BU-353 and am very happy with it. It's small, accurate, and quick to get a lock.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Ditto with Darque

    It's water proof too!

    or so they say, I haven't tried it out yet.

    I have the Royaltek Sapphire. I didn't vote for it, because it's not the BEST. But it does work pretty much as advertised although it is prone to electromagnetic interference from the screen or computer itself. You have to place it strategically. When you do, it works just fine.

    I vote for the AyAy, as far as price/performance goes.

    Yah. I debated the thread title for this.
    These polls really don't tell anyone what the best anything is. It's just a popularity contest.
    However, considering that we all want a quality GPS unit, if a lot of people are using that unit, it certainly can't suck that bad...

    I have a deluo in the car and it's decent like many others. I only regret buying it after buying a rikaline for my PocketPC.. If anything I would have bought TWO rikalines (1 for car & 1 for PocketPC as I travel a lot). This is the one I'm talking about (Rikaline 6033):
