Best budget GPS devices
- — 16 November, 2010 15:20
Now has never been a better time to buy a GPS navigation device.
Spending less doesn't mean your navigation experience will be an inferior one — aside from giving you turn-by-turn directions, even the cheapest GPS units will allow you to locate points of interest (POIs), save your favourite locations and explore new places. The main differences between a budget GPS unit and a high-end one are generally unnecessary add-ons like Bluetooth hands-free capabilities, live traffic information, MP3 playback and FM transmitters.
We've rounded-up our favourite budget GPS units on the market from Garmin, TomTom, Navman and Navigon.
7 / 7
There are no advanced features like Bluetooth and live traffic updates, but Navman's MY30 still manages to include lane guidance and 3D landmarks. Overzealous school zone alerts, an inconsistent map and an average screen will disappoint.
