I've been wanting a GPS for awhile now, and I'm starting to get alittle more money coming in and decided now would be a good time to invest in one. After looking around I came to the conclusion that I have no idea what I'm looking for. So I was hoping maybe some of you guys could help me out.

What are some things I should look into when buying one? All I want is one that can give me directions to alot of places, has text-to-speech (actually tells you where to go), and I would like for it to have a decently sized screen.

I'm really liking this one.
Amazon.com: Garmin nüvi 1350/1350T 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic: Electronics
It has a nice sized screen, I really like the traffic updates it says it has, and that it gives you shortest route, less fuel routes, and fastest time routes (this may be standard, im not sure). The price is nice too.

So can anyone give me some shopping advice on picking out a GPS? Or can someone let me know if the one I'm looking at seems alright.

I'm not really looking to hack and customize and do all that. I'm just looking for a good, easy to use, plug and play GPS.

I don't want the 255w, it doesnt have Auto sort multiple destinations (provides most direct route), and a few other things I would like to have. I think I'm going to get the 1350T. It has everything I seem to want, and the price isn't bad.

get the dock for the dash and 1 that fits in it
Good advice, now I just need a 2nd gen.

SprocketsKustomPaint, I've heard great things about Garmin. That's really the only brand I'm looking at just because they have so many good reviews no matter which model it is.
