    Am using the Garmin Legend model for my trip in Taiwan few yrs back. Used it to nagivate the rural areas with good accuracy. Sad to say now my GPS is in the drybox, remain a legend....

    Have you thought of buying one of Garmin's Nuvi series from Amazon. Seems to be way cheaper to buy from US and it comes preloaded with US maps too.
    After receiving your set, you can then buy one MalSing map and then you are good to go.
    I am about to this as I will need some GPS for a road trip to the US next year.

    GPS... Hmm...

    Prior to a trip, study a map.
    During the trip, rely on my instincts and senses.

    If I've got no access to a map prior to my trip, I'll call up the animalistic magnetic instinct in me which isn't very accurate.

    Hate to make unplanned trips.

    Hahaha I have got very very bad instinct when it comes to split second directional decision during driving, so now if my instinct is go left I will go right Damn really need a GPS in SIN But I am champion doing topography though...

    Try not to do that.
    They charge you more than US$10 per day, so if you rent a car for 2 weeks you pay additional US$150 or more. Not worthy.
    When I was in the US earlier this month, we rented a car without GPS and use our own unit.
    The make matters worse, you may not be too familiar with the software or operations and it makes navigation quite cumbersome.

    Garmin is by far the best system in the market. Software is easy to use and intuitive.
    Tom Tom comes second, then Magellan, Mio etc.
