I just bought a TomTom ONE. It's only been out for a little while and has a much better mounting bracket then the previous model and it also has spoken street names for when you have to turn. I like how you can search for things in the area like service stations, Food outlets etc and it can direct you there.

Anyone know of some of the links to download different voices for TomTom? Still in the learning phase of it at the moment and I am the type of person that never reads the instructions manual :)

I have the new model TomTom One and it came in at $375 and there was another range above it if you wanted to cough up $400 plus.

The TomTom Navigator is a great unit which I had for a while but I smashed it. I now use a Garmin Nuvi 260W widescreen and which I have uploaded fixed / red light speed camera locations into as well.
Both of these are good value items.
