In every country the global positioning system or GPS can be found. These are remarkable systems that tell you exactly where to go and turn by turn directions on how to get there. This is a review of the top five GPS units of 2010.
Garmin Nuvi 3790T $449.99
The Garmin Nuvi 3790T has been know to be one of the lightest and thinnest GPSs ever made. There is a voice command feature which makes the 3790T completely hands-free. Just say what you want and let the GPS do the rest. The 4.8″ screen offers exceptional viewing. The 3790T is very light at only four ounces. The weight and thickness of this unit makes it one of the easiest GPSs to carry around in your pocket.
Garmin Nuvi 255W 119.99
As they say it. Keep it simple. Garmins Nuvi 255W is a great entry level text-to-speak GPS. It has a 4.3″ screen and is relatively thin. It tells you the current speed limits and you current speeds. Has over four million points of interest. All in all this GPS is well worth the money.
Garmin Nuvi 205W 109.99
The garmin Nuvi 205W is the best entry level GPS on the market. Although it does not speak street names it is still a superior GPS over the competition. The 205W will tell you current speeds, give detour routes if needed, but the best feature is the Eco route. With Eco route, which is now a standard on all Garmin units, it will calculate your miles per gallon,fuel used, and carbon footprint. This is a great feature and makes this unit well worth the money.
Magellan Roadmate 3045-LM 219.99
The Magellan Roadmate 3045-LM is a great GPS unit with a 4.7″ screen for an easy to read display. This unit offers a traffic avoidance feature that allows you to avoid traffic jams and construction zones automatically via real time updates. Magellan offers lifetime updates at no additional cost which is why this unit earns a spot in the top five.
Garmin 1250T 129.99
The garmin 1250T features a 3.5″ easy to navigate screen. Text-to-speech turn-by-turn directions and automatic re-routing. This GPS is a great starter GPS. The 1250T is a newer model with over six million points of interest. This is my top choice because for the price of 129.99 offers everything you could ever need out of a GPS.
