Default Best GPS/satnav

Hi all. I know it's all opinion based, but what's the best value for money gps around? I need it to have camera input (and easily switch between navigation and camera) and on and off road maps.

cheers

I have the hema 7. Its good but needs to be a little better user friendly. Sometimes seems to take ages to get things organised. Then again my lack of use may be the problem. Overall a good unit. I have the latest 1:150,000 map updates and many other loaded maps of all Australia. Cant possibly get lost!!!...lol

As with most gadgets, it comes down to personal choice and who needs choices when theres enough to do when your off the beaten track

Im running two units myself, a Garmin 7 inch GPS with the standard 250,000 Ozzie explorer maps on micro card and added the hema 7 as well as they have the extra maps they produce which are great. the hema 7,s are a lot of $$ but featured packed and no doubt will be a big learning curve to fully utilise it...only thing is the genuine sunshade they supply would have to be the most pathetic bit of plastic ive ever seen, cant see it lasting long, nor actually stay attached on bumpy roads.

then again, the after market sunshade I bought for the garmin was a total fail...it disformed/buckled from being in the sun, go figurelol.

I run OziExplorer with the Hema map set on a Samsung Note 10.1 and find it fantastic. The large screen makes it easy to see what you're doing.

I replaced the MMCS with a Kenwood unit with Garmin mapping about 18 months ago - it is also great to use.
It was interesting that in the Vic high country recently the Kenwood/Garmin mapping was most probably more accurate than the Hema maps - the only problem was that you don't get a great topographical view like you do with OziExplorer.

In SA, the RAA sells the Hema HN7 to RAA members for $629 (RRP $699).

The RAC in WA also sells it, but I don't know the price.

I have been looking at the Hema HN7 as well as an upgrade from a nexus 7.
The price in the link above is about the cheapest price other than second hand I have seen in the last couple of weeks. Hoping for some after Christmas sales. Any one seen a new price better than the one in the link above?
