    Did some of you handle both brands? Which one did you like better?

    Also, is the traffic update feature worth the extra money?

    I have a Garmin and a Magellan.

    Garmin is better overall but i like the look and features of my Magellan better.

    And no it's not worth it unless you spend a lot of time on freeways.

    I'm not trying to troll, but I'd just get a smart phone.

    Gotcha.
    In that case, we had a Tom Tom a few years ago.
    It was competent enough and easy to use.
