i recently bought my first gps. a garmin c330. after having a little while
i realize some features i would like to have that it doesnt have. this is were i need some help. :?
i would like the following. i would like to be able to plan my route road by road, either on the unit or on my computer.
i like the idea of xm radio and the mp3 player. from what i read i think the garmin 2730 is the answer. but in everything i read i cant seem to address the route planning issue and any salesman i talk to seems to have similar prouct knowledge as my dog. :) also is there one that records a random route you have driven?

thanks in advance for your help.

I personally bought an Iway 500C. It does everything that I need and has performed flawlessly. Awhile back someone posted a great site for GPS. You might want to visit www.gpspassion.com and do some research, or ask a few questions. It's loaded with helpful hints and lots of smart people. The Garmins put me into info overload(easily done!) so I just use the Iway.
Good luck

You can route plan on the GPS and PC with the 2730. You can also record the "random route that you have driven" as a track plot back to your PC (the 2730 records 2000 track points).

It also has a builtin XM radio, which you have to subscribe to. It also has a a builtin MP3 player.

If the XM and MP3 players do not interest you, the 2610 is still an outstanding buy.
