Default Car GPS Navigation systems? Are any any good?

OK, Lady Friend needs an in-car GPS navigatior - Garmin/TomTom/????? As non-computer-literate as you can be and still be above ground. No sense of direction, either. Is now having to drive into Salt Lake City every 3 months to get medical services, (72 year old cancer survivor). City traffic has always buffaloed her.

She wants one with a big screen that will "talk to her". (What she WANTS is Onstar, but she's driving a Ford.)

I know from nothing about these. My OTR van has had a laptop running deLorme Topo coupled to a GPS since about Y2K, I do my own route planning thank you very much.

What advice has the assembled multitude got to offer?

Looked at Amazon. Garmin gets polarized reviews - either love it they hate it. The haters claim that it has gotten them lost.

I see a number of Chinese knockoffs. I don't buy Chinese off of Amazon, (been there, done that, burned the T-shirt ).

TomTom is another brand; any good? Is Magellan still in this market?

Got to be reliable finding addresses in SLC, and ultra-easy to program.

Thanks !
