Best Garmin GPS units

We roundup the best Garmin sat navs on the market

US company Garmin may not have as big a presence in Australia as it does in many European markets, but its range of portable in-car GPS units are some of the most impressive on offer. Garmin also has a huge presence in marine and handheld GPS units; the latter targeted at recreational and professional bike riders, walkers, runners, and hikers; while its Zumo range caters for motorcyclists.

Garmin's GPS units are easily recognisable by a very simple but ultimately effective user interface. The company is also responsible for producing the nuvi 3790T — a GPS we consider to sexiest, sleekest and best looking we've ever seen.

Garmin nuvi 1350

If you can live without traffic updates and Bluetooth hands-free, Garmin's nuvi 1350 is an excellent GPS with a competitive price tag. The lack of advanced lane guidance is a real shame, but the clear maps, good voice instructions and fast GPS chip should keep most users satisfied.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
