GPS Model: 

Garmin 255W
Device rating  - Pros:  Good display and sound. Seems rugged. Eco-Route feature tells you how efficiently (%) you are driving based on your cars MPG ratings and factory installed speed limits.

Just purchased so I am still evaluating this model.

After much research I felt the BLuetooth option and traffic alerts was unreliable.

Device rating - Cons:  Only shows time of arrival and not time left to arrive. Cant custom program turn/off-ramp alerts (in miles/km).

The suction-cup mount has a ball and ring configuration to swivel. I suspect the metal ring may weaken with time making it impossible to keep the unit exactly where you want it. ie. the unit will sag.
