Deciding between Garmin and TomTom for a "traditional" car GPS is tricky. Garmin have way more features, much better maps, way, way better local South African support, and are priced better. But TomTom has a killer feature - its live traffic is off the scale better than Garmin's. I used a 5100 for about 3 weeks before (with prior permission) returning it to buy the 6200 instead. The 5100 does everything extremely well, and the built-in SIM card to receive traffic (at no cost) works brilliantly. The display is big and clear, but the resolution is not that great (main reason I bought the 6200 instead). The traffic camera warnings work well, and nobody does average-based camera warnings like TomTom. While in an average-based speed-trapping zone, TomTom shows you for how long you've got to go before exiting the zone, and your average speed since entering the zone. Its brilliant. If you want a car GPS unit that will identify traffic congestion and route you around it, and a great way to beat speed cameras, you can't go wrong. The 6200 is about R1000 more, but the screen has a much better resolution, and unlike the 5200 it connects to your phone via Bluetooth for hands-free calling, and it supports WiFi for map/POI/speed trap updates.
