Navigation GPS Review

The top performers in our review are the Garmin Nuvi 2589. the Gold Award winner; the TomTom GO 500. the Silver Award winner; and the Magellan SmartGPS. the Bronze Award winner. Here s more on choosing a product to meet your needs, along with detail on how we arrived at our ranking of 10 products.

Navigation GPS units are small, portable devices that can give you accurate, specific directions, even in areas without cell service. They are vastly superior to smartphone apps because they don’t use data or tax your smartphone’s battery.

You type in or, in some premium models, speak your destination and the device gives you turn-by-turn directions. It also displays information such as your current speed and the time and distance remaining until you reach your destination.

They attach via a suction cup to your windshield or dashboard and get power from a cigarette lighter adapter. Unlike with permanent navigation GPS units, you can simply unplug a portable GPS and move it from car to car.

In contrast to a smartphone navigation app, you don’t have to be in an area with cell service in order to get turn-by-turn directions from a navigation GPS. This is because these units have maps in their memories and get their location information directly from GPS satellites, which have better coverage than cell phone providers do.

Navigation GPS: Essential Features

Every unit that we reviewed comes preloaded with maps of the United States. They also have micro-SD card slots into which you can insert additional map cards. This means that if you plan to travel abroad, you can buy a map of that country, load it onto a micro-SD card and insert it into your GPS.

It’s important that you look for a GPS with lifetime map updates. This means that every year or so, you can go on the manufacturer’s website and update your maps to reflect any changes. Automatic reroute is an essential feature found on every decent car GPS. If you take a wrong turn, the unit should recalculate your route based on your updated location.

A speed limit indicator is another important feature. The device tells you not only the speed you’re traveling at, but also the speed limit of the road you’re on. This can help you avoid speeding tickets caused by not knowing the speed limit of the road you’re on, such as one in an unfamiliar location. You’ll also want to make sure your GPS has a built-in battery so it can work even when unplugged.

Navigation GPS: Premium Features

The best navigation GPS units have a host of features that, while not necessary, greatly enhance your navigation experience. The most important of these is voice-activated navigation. This is one of the biggest advantages smartphones have historically had over dedicated GPS units, because it’s much quicker than typing in a destination. Several models we reviewed have this feature.

3D maps are an especially helpful feature if you frequently drive in cities. Tall buildings, bridges and other tall objects are modeled in three dimensions. This makes them much easier to recognize than they are on a traditional two-dimensional map. All Garmin Nuvi units have 3D maps, and Magellan and TomTom also offer them on select models.

Another premium feature that you should look for is a built-in traffic receiver. This enables you to check traffic conditions without having to consult your smartphone. A capacitive touchscreen is another feature that is good to have, because it enables you to make pinch-to-zoom gestures, just as you would on your smartphone, an ability you don’t get with resistive touchscreens.

The Verdict; Our Recommendations:

The Garmin Nuvi 2589LMT is the best car GPS on the market. It has every feature that you should look for in a GPS, and Garmin has the best customer service in the industry.

The TomTom GO 500 is a close runner-up, the lack of a built-in traffic receiver being its only real weakness, and it can still receive traffic updates through a dedicated smartphone app. It’s a bit cheaper than the Nuvi, too.

The Magellan SmartGPS 5390 is our third choice. Its feature list is virtually identical to the TomTom’s, and its screen has a higher resolution. However, Magellan’s customer service is not as good as TomTom’s or Garmin’s.

If you’re on a strict budget, the TomTom GO 50 is the auto GPS for you. It’s on par with the most affordable units on the market, and it includes lifetime map updates. It has all of the essentials that we look for, but it lacks the premium features that differentiate the best car GPS units from the competition.

Everyone uses maps, but some people use paper maps, some use dedicated GPS units, and some use their smartphones. Dedicated GPS units are easily the best choice, because they work almost anywhere and, unlike paper maps, they can be updated.

Mercedes-Benz A-class Concept – News – Car and Driver


#mercedes auto
#

It may be a front-wheel-drive compact underneath, but the A-class concept is liquid lust.

With automakers from St. Petersburg to Seoul presenting show cars heralded as the future of wheeled urban logistics, the Mercedes-Benz A-class concept taking the stand at this year s New York auto show is a breath of fresh air. (It also will be simultaneously unveiled at the Shanghai auto show .) There are no electric motors spinning the rubber here a conventional engine and transmission motivate the curvaceous car. It previews Benz s upcoming competitor for the Audi A3, Volkswagen Golf, and BMW 1-series.

Auto-Show Styling Mostly

Benz s first preview of its next-gen small cars came via the F800 Style concept. and this A-class concept moves the design language one step closer to reality. Still, despite this car s connection to an actual future product, don t expect everything from the concept on the stand in New York to be duplicated in production.

Among the A-class s pure auto-show fantasies: the LED-lit turn signals delicately integrated into the sliver of a mount for the side-view mirrors and the star-filled sky pattern on the grill and lower air dam. The same can be said for the wheels very cool, but very much not happening.

Other aspects of the concept s design are no less bold but more realistic. The prominent strake starting behind the front wheel and sweeping up to the top of the rear fender is abrupt; it could be toned down for the real deal, and the same goes for the AMG-esque hood strakes. The elegant side-window profile recalls those on several Mercedes coupes, and the ginormous headlights, which here are illuminated by LEDs and integrate fiber-optic daytime running lights, are straight outta the CLS.

Metcash, Burson chase WA auto parts

by Simon Evans

The 74-year-old owner of the Veale Auto Parts business in Western Australia says he has held talks with three separate companies, including Metcash and Burson Group, about a potential sale of his business, but he’s not sure if he wants to part with it.

Veale Auto Parts runs 16 outlets in Perth and Bunbury and has a long history in WA. Owner Terry Veale says he has been pursued by three different groups at various stages over the past two years as they seek to expand their national coverage in the automotive parts aftermarket segment.

Burson Group, which will list on the Australian Securities Exchange on April 24, is pushing hard to fill a gap in its geographic network and ­currently doesn’t have a presence in Western Australia. The Burson directors, led by new chairman Rob McEniry, a former chief executive of Mitsubishi Motors in ­Australia, held a board meeting on Monday prior to lodging a prospectus for its ASX listing.

Mr Veale didn’t want to reveal the annual revenue of his group on ­Monday, but did say he had been courted by three different groups, including the listed Automotive Holdings Group in the past.

“I’ve had a lot of people have a look,’’ he says. “I’m not sure I’m ready to let go.”

Mr Veale says the business is performing solidly. “We’re going like a house on fire.”

He says he will need to weigh up what is a better option for him, whether to sell for a good price or “have something to get up and do each morning”.

Burson needs a WA automotive parts retail business to fill out its national network. It is currently in talks to buy the 27 Covs retail stores in Western Australia. That business is owned by Automotive Holdings Group, after it bought the operations for $29 million in 2011 from the Coventry Group .
