We have a really old Garmin.... and it still works nicely! We actually purchased it for sailing, but now we use it for land. If you are in the market and have a West Marine Store near you anywhere, I would suggest you go there just to have a look see. West Marine always hires folks who are knowledgeable about the equipment and one of the salespeople can probably give you lots of information. Even though they deal with boating, as long as you have a land map installed it should be good. West Marine stands by all of their products and at any time if something doesn't work right, you can take it back and they always fix it or replace it without hassle. We had a old Loran on our sailboat and after about 4 years of sea abuse it quit. They gave us a new one right out of the box no questions asked. You don't need to purchase one there, but it is a good place to go look, touch, try out, and talk to someone who knows. (Be prepared, often the people who work there are "kids") :P

here's a good site for product reviews:

I also like to read the user-reviews on Amazon - it takes a while, but you'll eventually get pretty good feedback on the best and worst features of each unit.

Hey, its the only way to be sure!
