Trade your car in on a Z4 with the Nav unit in the dash.
Yes, I'm serious.

I don't know much about the unit you posted, so I can't give it any reviews. But if you're looking for a cheap portable GPS, you can't go wrong with the MioMap C310x. It's routinely on sale for $200 and below, and it's fantastic. It's just as good as some Garmin and TomTom units that cost twice as much or more. The processor is very fast, so you can smoothly scroll around the map, you can get a true birds eye view (and you can choose your own view angle. it's not preset), routing and rerouting is lightning quick, and I think the user interface is very intuitive and fast. I pretty much can't talk it up enough. For the price, it's amazing.

And then there is always that long lost piece of technology called a map. You can get them at.. well.. anywhere for about 1/20th the price of whatever Chris was talking about and they don't have any lag. Real easy to scroll around, it's just like turning a page.

That made me LOL IRL

/sarcasm
The only problem with maps is I get about 1 frame per secon.....err, 1 frame per when I turn the page. That's horrible framerate!
/sarcasm off
