Great unit, but I am keeping Google maps!

I have never found the traffic receiver to be worthwhile. It just displays hotel ads when the car is stopped.
But for another $20 I would personally get the Nuvi 50LM at Staples, the 5" model, if you're looking to buy right now. If you use it very often the increase in screen size makes a world of difference. If you can wait, the 5" models are frequently offered refurbed at less cost and are indistinguishable from new.

Good suggestion! My sister travels a lot and wears a strong eyeglass prescription, so the 5-inch screen would probably be better for her.
