DISCUSSION

I don't have a problem with the larger screen ( like the Nuvi 600 series; it's the thickness of the Tom Tom units that makes it difficult to use as anything other than an in car GPS system ( no walking, no hiking, awkward to have to take it with you out of the car for security reasons). It was also the mounting that made it annoying to install; the weight of it kept drooping the windshield mount. Granted, the Tom Tom one ( which is the unit I purchased before I sent it back )had a lot of nice features including plenty of space on its 20GB hard drive, but for portability, the Garmin Nuvi 370 ( albeit expensive ) is the perfect GPS for me; that is until my eyes give out.

side note - someone on this thread think's the nuvi 300 series is too large......come on, surely you jest.
