    you can hire them with a car but it's very expensive.

    I have had them through rental car agencies, and can tell you that Alamo's are the worst! I've had so much trouble with their gps units that I no longer book through Alamo.

    Hertz, is more pricey but their gps are far more reliable. Unfortunately, their cars are getting shabbier and shabbier. :(

    I'm now using Budget, but have only had them a couple of times. So far, so good. Clean decent cars and a gps that works.

    We hired a car through Dollar and were asked if we wanted to add a gps at $10 per day.

    It would probably be worth your while to just buy your own GPS and take it with you. Those prices are ridiculous.
