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 3790T

The Garmin nuvi 3790T is drop-dead gorgeous. If you're willing to pay its premium price you'll get a navigation device that not only looks good, but offers excellent build quality, a great screen and what we think is the best overall navigational experience of any GPS unit on the market.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
