GPS/PND Unit Shipments Double in Second Quarter

Shipments of Personal Navigation Devices (PND) doubled in the second quarter of the year versus year ago, according to Canalys, an independent research firm. This growth comes despite the tough economy, but probably because prices continue to fall on GPS units at the stores. With the advent of the $150 entry level unit from a top brand name, you can pretty much assume most people interested in a unit will be able to go out and get one.

In the US market for the second quarter, Garmin maintained a 47% market share, while TomTom came in second at 25%, Magellan at 11%, Mio at 4.5% and Navigon at 3.6%. In the remaining "Other" category, Nextar was mentioned as an up and comer. I have hands on reviews on a lot of models from these brands check out the Reviews page.
