Much like a cell phone these days, I now make sure I never leave home without the GSP! Some people claim to got "ESP". I got GSP with this Magellan 1430 with live traffic subscription.
Pros: User interface, easy to use/understand menus
cons: abit sluggish at times when recalculating while driving and miss a turn.
Favorite feature: Chime tone notifying when exactly to turn.
