I have a portable unit from Garmin. It's a great little unit. It's not the most expensive model, but it's not the cheapest either. It's close to the least expensive and it does everything we want in a GPS receiver.

I haven't found a GPS system that I really like. That includes OEM installations as well as aftermarket products.

The problem with most GPS units is that if you want to compose your own route, the GPS units don't like it. If you don't care what route you take to your destination, then the GPS unit will be fine.

I will probably have GPS in my next ride but I'll only use it when I encounter road work and takes me off my planned route.

Factory navigation is very expensive. A good GPS can be had for $100-150. A lot less than $3000 for the nav system.

The Chevy Cruze does; the Chevy HHR has OnStar nav (extra expense), but I use my Android phone instead for navigation.
