Grab a GPS for Labor Day Road Trip

Thumbnail image for Garminnuvi255w.jpg

I wanted to highlight a few GPS units that might help you out this weekend if you are hitting the road. I have been offering advice on some cheaper units that can help out wayward travelers looking for a good deal. You can always venture into Refurbs for the best deal, but some are not interested in the risk.

Garmin Nuvi 255W - widescreen go-to unit that is right-priced at $119 at BestBuy right now as well as Amazon. See my review for more information but the unit covers most needs with a good set of features, namely widescreen, good maps and text to speech. And no, this unit isn't part of the recall.

TomTom Widescreen Best Bets Depending on the outlet:

At Amazon - The TomTom XL 325S
- a widescreen text to speech unit offering maps of the US. On sale for $114.

At BestBuy - TomTom XL 335 LE - Widescreen, Text to Speech unit that should be available for store pick-up (backordered online) - Price is $129

Safe travels.....
