To tell you the truth, Manhattan is one of those places where GPS unit do poorly, due to the tall buildings blocking satellite reception.  The upside is that the island is laid out in a grid with logical numbering, and a plain old street map is all you need, if you need one at all - the avenue and cross street is sufficient to find your destination.  There are street address calculators written for finding cross streets, but I have seen cardboard slide versions that do the job.

Both are good, but I have a Garmin Quest which I really like.  My only complaint would be that it doesn't have enough memory to hold detailed maps of the whole country (only 114MB), so you have to preload it with detailed maps of the route you will be taking.  A laptop is useful for that purpose.
