The Garmin Quest is a perennial favorite among car navigation systems. The Quest is reasonably priced and has a bright color screen. To top it all off, it comes complete with Garmin's richly detailed City Select software.
12 reviewers gave the Quest an average 4-1/2 (out of 5) star rating at Amazon, which said in it's review...
"Portability meets capability in Garmin's pocket-sized Quest portable automotive global-positioning system. The easy-to-use device is loaded with the high-end navigation features from Garmin's most popular GPS navigators. Use it in multiple vehicles or simply slip it in your pocket for handy street-level directions when you're navigating on foot.
Smaller than a standard television remote, the Quest provides ample screen viewing area but won't demand a lot of room on the dashboard or in the briefcase. The device sports a bright, 256-color, high-resolution TFT display that is easy to read even in bright sunlight. The device is easy to use; just make certain your antenna is unobstructed and you'll be ready to navigate. Whether you're on foot or in your car, position the antenna to be parallel with the surface of the road so it can have the best view of the sky. This flip-up antenna design allows you to maximize your reception..."
