I use a laptop with Microsoft Streets & Trips. I tend to prefer tools which have more than one use.

I use a Tom Tom 720 w/free map updates. Comes in very handy when I use it!

I used to use a cell phone, but found that to be dangerous. Now use a Garmin attached to windshield that talks to me. Safer.

Portable. But I set it on my dashboard instead of on my windshield. I'd rather not advertise that I stick something to my windshield.

Portable, windshield/dash mountable, and convertible hand-held is preferable to a dealer installed, or manufacturer provided one. This portable type is very flexible because it can be crried outside of the car. Charging it while driving is convenient, obaining updates via computer is a great feature, and using it in other vehicles is very convenient.
