It's a one-time cost to buy the GPS. You may want to update the maps in future years, and that would be a cost. Also, some models have traffic subscription capabilities, and you'd have to pay a monthly fee for that if you wanted it.

Bumping up an old thread. Any current 2012 recommendations? There are so many GPS units, and its not easy to tell which ones are new or older models and really how much difference is there between 4.3" and 5" screen?

I prefer 3.5" units myself. Easier to stick in my pocket and/or hide in my car.

I'm still happy with my triple combo (Navigon 2200, Cheap Chinese GPS running iGO 8, and Tomtom One 130). Total aggregate cost was less than $100, and I can have three voices yelling directions at me if I want. I don't usually do that ... most of the time I let one route me and the other two provide different map views.

I actually use Waze on my iPhone most of the time now around town.
