The one I have is made by Eagle and it doesn't talk - I'm not sure if any of them do - I haven't seen one yet. I use it 90% of the time in my boat and I wouldn't be able to hear it anyway - but it would be cool in the car! Also - I wouldn't necessarily refer to them as "aftermarket" - they designed the systems to start with, and I'd bet that they also make the car units.

: Do those aftermarket jobs talk? I mean its not a deciding factor but I think it's a great novelty.

: BTW thanks for the responses.

: -Regards

: : My advice is: buy a hand held unit - about $500 for one that does everything the car unit does, and you can use it in other cars, in a boat, on foot, etc. Also - do you get lost often? Would you really use it? 99.9% of the time, I know exactly where I'm going...etc. I'm sure there are people who rely on the navigation system, but I haven't seen any posts yet from anyone who says it's a "must have".

: : Oh - if you are really interested in a handheld, try Cabellas - - they carry lots of them.
: : : Is the Navigation system worth the money? Are those CD-Rom Discs updated on a regular basis and how much do they go for each update?

: : : -Regards
