I'm totally confused as to which models use an android phone connection, or rds-tms, or a sim card. Could someone who knows Garmin give a bit of advice.

Also believe new models are due shortly so this may not be a good time to purchase?

I use a Garmin 3590 which has life time maps and traffic (through RDS). I supplement the radio traffic reception by using the Android Smartlink costing 19.99 per year for traffic. This works quite well.

I made this choice because when I move on to a new model in the future I will still have a fully working satnav with up-to-date maps and a traffic service through RDS.

Whether you wait for one of the 2013 models is a difficult decision but the 2012 models including the 3590 are good value for money.
