the 60CSx and the HcX etc., tempted me, but to be frank they are not
in car units. Apart from the 200$ price, I also have to spend extra on
car adaptor+mount.
therefore I was looking at the 200 series(nuvi)

If I can't find something in my budget, I will get one of those "no
name brand" chinese 80$ units, which runs windows CE. After that its
gosmore + that unit.

Speaking of windows CE, can you guys direct me to any brand(tomtom
etc, will do too) unlocked GPS unit which can run gosmore etc.,
