I went with the Garmin 550 b/c it is water resistant and has walking/hiking/etc. modes as well. We used it on vacation and it was wonderful having IT watch for our next turn so that we could just enjoy the ride.
I also like that it tells us the speed limit as well. So if you miss the sign, you can just look at the GPS (except for all the construction zones, of course)
I did find that I had to add in extra stopping points a time or two to get it to take the route 'I' wanted to take.
Overall... I'm so glad I got it, but also glad I took a map with me as well.
Thanks everyone for the great advice.
