GPS UPDATE: In response to a reader question yesterday, reader Bobby Sayer emails:

In response to a reader’s request for in-car GPS info…I’d recommend TomTom’s products. I’m using their “TomTom Navigator 5″ software for my Windows Mobile phone (Cingular 8125), and so far it’s been pretty good. The software comes with a rechargable Bluetooth GPS module for $300, though you could probably find it cheaper online. If you don’t have a Windows Mobile or Palm device, TomTom’s GO 300 and 700 are pretty sweet as well.

My brother has a handheld GPS that he likes a lot, but I’m not sure of the model. I don’t own one. Heck, I don’t even own a TiVo — and when I tried to get a DirecTV TiVo-equivalent I discovered that they don’t offer a model that will burn DVDs, which sucks, so I probably won’t own one any time soon.
