Hi - My NAV system software is out of date and I need to update. From reading on this forum it seems like to update the software would be over $200 if I get from Toyota Dealer...

I would appreciate your thoughts on any alternatives. I would even buy a Garmin NAV system and mount on my dash if it were as good as the 2005 system and updates were cheaper.

    A current Garmin will prove to be head and shoulders above your '05 system, most likely even better than a captive nav system fresh off the 2010 "line".
  • What Garmin model would you recommend?
    The Nuvi 265WT looks great and seems to be one of the most popular models.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I have a 260w and I'm happy with it. I own 3 Garmins currently and it's the best of the 3. Costco has it for $149? I forget exactly. So cheap!

    The 265wt adds FM traffic and Bluetooth to what mine has. I think it was $199 or so.

    The best I've seen, though, is the 1490T model, which has the 5" screen. Buy a vent mount and that'll be as big as stock, since it'll be closer to your fingers/eyes. It's new so it's near $500 but an excellent unit.
