In general, though, these days we’d recommend a highly rated portable unit for most people. The biggest advantage of the portable unit is choice. You can shop for and buy one that suits your needs, is easy to use and provides good, reliable directions. And most importantly, if it fails, or becomes out of date, you always have the option of tossing it in the garbage and buying another one.
