GPS Showdown - Garmin vs TomTom vs Magellan
The Best GPS Devices from Garmin, Magellan and TomTom
Which GPS system is better: Garmin or Magellan or TomTom? Everyone has gotten lost at least once or twice in their life and as useful as maps are, they can be quite hard to bring around and use just anywhere. They are particularly hard to use when you are driving. Multitasking while driving is also quite a dangerous endeavor and you can't keep pulling over to check your map (just not efficient). Printed maps are so inconvenient that people rarely use them these days.
GPS units have become the preferred method of navigation and the developments in technology have allowed consumers to get it at a much cheaper price. GPS navigators prevent you from getting lost while you're driving and you don't have to stop every time there is a course correction. Having maps stored into a compact device so that you won't have to carry and unfold a large map not only saves space, it also saves time. Here are some great models to that we are going to compare:
Garmin Nuvi 52LM - The Best GPS for the Money
Garmin leads the industry in quality GPS units for you car. This is a 5 inch GPS navigator from Garmin that comes with over 5 million points of interest. A voice guides along the way after inputting your destination into the device.
TomTom XXL 540TM - In Second Place
TomTom has a loyal following of customers, although it is not quite as popular as the Garmin brand. The TomTom XXL 540TM is a great 5 inch navigator that provides with more than just directions.
Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM - Last but not least
There are a few things that set this GPS out above the competition. The Magellan Roadmate 5045-LM is a 5 inch device that includes a lifetime of free map updates.
