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.
6 / 9
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.
