Via Michelin X930 GPS available in US
So the Via Michelinn X-930 is coming to the US, as it is apparently done pretty well in Europe. The value play GPS system will get a passing grade on a lot of the basics, SiRF star III chipset, 3.5 inch touchscreen, NAVTEQ maps, on board battery, and a decent amount of Points of Interest (1.5 million). The unit has voice turn by turn directions, but not text to speech. Their line is considrable in Europe, where they offer a wide range of GPS options. We reported earlier this year that Via Michelin is looking at bringing in the higher end X-980T.
It's available at J&R for under $300. I can't vouch for it, so, you'll need to check out other reviews or user comments.
Update: Even more information on the Via Michelin X-930

I bought this unit less than 4 months ago, and it stopped working while on a trip. Trying not to get it repaired under warranty from Europe. I loved this until it broke, now I am just hopeful to get my monies worth. Bottom line, beware as it may not be that well made.
