Real men don't need directions! However, my wife does not agree. She want to buy a GPS for me. How about some recommendations for an easy to use unit that updates. I don't need one that takes a rocket scientist figure out.

I have a Garmin hand held unit. It will do most everything but its not the easiest to use.

You can get a GPS at your local Costco or BJs. You can also get some of the Garmin models with lifetime updates of maps and free traffic alerts. They aren't that hard to use, but you should remember to only program them while your vehicle is stopped or by your co-pilot, if you are driving. Different brands of GPSs use different mapping software so some brands don't have the latest maps other brands have. If you really want to get a GPS cheap look for one on Ebay. Do some research first into what features you are looking for and see which brands/models have these.
If you also are looking into getting one of the new smart phones, forget about getting a GPS. The new smart phones can be used as a GPS and some even have dedicated dash mounts for this.

I use my G2... It uses google maps and works very well... Plus it is useful for a lot of other things too, so you aren't spending a bunch of money for something you rarely use...
