    Hi all! I'm hoping for some good old advice.

    I'm in the market for a GPS unit or something. It wouldn't be primarily for a car, as I don't have a car, but more for not getting lost when I go on my day trips into various cities.

    It looks like there are some good portable ones that people use their cars, but I don't know if the battery life is adequate.
    The handheld ones don't get very good ratings, but the battery life is incredible. I don't know how well they do in cities, though.
    Finally, I have AT&T (but don't have an iPhone) so the other option is their Navigation service. I'm wondering how the day-pass works and how good their maps, etc are.

    If you have any tips or opinions, I'd love to hear 'em!

    Try going to this website:

    http://gpsinformation.net/

    They have lots of information at a basic level for what to lool for and what makes a good gps for different situations.

    Bumping is against forum rules. Besides it was only an hour before you bumped it; give people time.

    Sorry. Last time I waited over a month for a reply and, well, never got one. I feel like MacRumors just isn't as good as it used to be. If someone wants to delete this thread, it's fine. Again, I apologize for breaking the rules.
