No idea on prices but my company provide the tom tom 1XL. 3d screen day and night options and so much more. For users that make many stops the 7 digit postcode is an absolute diamond, punch in the post code and house number, takes seconds....

I have only ever used tomtom systems and found them to be very good.

If I was looking to buy a new one I would look at the tomtom go live 1000

Tomtom gets my vote too. I use it on a smartphone or Ipaq (organiser) and I get on with it fine. I can't compare it to any other portable systems, as I've always been happy so never tried anything else. Took me across Europe a few years ago, no bother.

A decent Tom Tom with live updates would get my vote to.
Avoid the cheaper ones though.

I can recommend second one on your list the TomTom Via LIVE 120 Sat Nav - UK & ROI as I purchased this when my Sat Nav packed up in car.
Speed camera D/B live traffic info for first year included, clear display with many options and the usual Tom Tom facilities.

If I was buying another one I would go for one with voice commands. Current one is Tom tom and most happy with it.
