I haven't used either, but as far as GPS goes these days, you're better off saving your money and getting a mobile phone with it built-in.

It all comes down to price.

The 265WT lists for $299.99 and has the free NAVTEQ service. Not all the features are available for Toronto, but you should be OK traveling in the U.S.

The 785T lists for $599.99 and offers the optional MSN Direct service, which is free for the first few months and then costs $50 per year.

While MSN Direct has more bells and whistles, both of the services provide the same traffic information.

Now most of the cars have the GPS built-in, if you need to upgrade the map, you can go to
navteq map update update it, you may also find a Navteq coupon there.
