What is a good GPS?

My soon to be 9 year old ds is obsessed with maps and "where does that road go?" So I'm looking to get him a GPS that is reasonably priced but will allow him to scroll through the maps and be able to see the street names. TIA

  • I have a Magellan that is a few years old. The maps need updated, but I love it!

  • Now that I read the whole question, for a child I would go with the Megellan (sp?). We have one for our jet ski's and it's a hand held... It was 99.00, you can get one at any outdoor store, like Bass pro, or Cabellas..

  • Garmin is the one that had the highest rating when we were shopping for one.

  • Thank you ladies for all of your answers. We went with the Garmin NUVI 1100. It had almost everything we were looking for and it was under $100 lol.
