I would go for a tomtom personally, assuming you mean an aftermarket portable.

I had tomtom5 before getting the Civic, I ran it on a HP Ipaq, I would imagine a tomtom go would be just as good. Really enjoyed the 3d view they had, but soon got used to the top down planning on the Civic. The best thing with the tomtom, you can download the POI's so you can actually find a mucky-d's in this country, if you want to.

TomTom seems good enough for me, although I haven't tried the others.

tom tom is far superior to the garmin as it gets and holds its signal better and redirection calculations are faster

Agreed.. I've used pretty much all of the major sat nav devices and software, and TomTom really is better.

TomTom for me too. Used it for about 4 years on my previous car loaded on a Dell Axim pocket PC.
