GPS Steals and Deals - 11/8
It's that time of year, and we have some more deals hitting the stores than normal. Thought I would post a few with some references to online for your consideration or browsing. Don't forget to check out the BLACK FRIDAY deals and sales post that I an updating on a regular basis.
This week's deals:
- Insignia NS-NAV01 - $79 - my reco is to skip it. Admittedly haven't used it but have heard and seen first hand some disappointing reviews and emails about BestBuy's house brand GPS.
- TomTom 140S - $149 at Best Buy, $130 at Amazon - Text to speech in a standard size screen (3-5 inch).
- TomTom XXL 540S - $269 at BestBuy, $256 at Amazon - large 5-inch screen with maps of North America including Mexico. Has lane assist and text to speech.
- Magellan RoadMate 1440 - $169 at BestBuy, $163 at Amazon - widescreen with lane assist and multi-destination routing. Has Text to Speech.
- Magellan RoadMate 1445T -$199 at BestBuy, includes widescreen, lane assist, text to speech and adds traffic capabilities.
- Garmin Nuvi 255WT - $179 at BestBuy, - widescreen with traffic receiver and free lifetime traffic. See My Full Hands on Review of the Nuvi 255W
OfficeMax - offers the Nextar Q4 for $79 - I would recommend spending money now on something else from a name brand that you (and I ) trust, or wait until Black Friday deals to get what you want.
Similarly CVS is offering a $79 GPS for dummies - yes you'd be a dummy to buy this. Spend your money on something you hardly need a manual to use like a Garmin or a TomTom - Black Friday offers a good chance to get high quality at the same price.
