Ok - Black Friday is coming fast, and the planning has begun. If a GPS is on your list, there are plenty of good deals at several locations, all but assuring you that you will be able to get a good GPS.If you want to browse our Black Friday GPS Deals 2010 by store listing, you will find a comprehensive list of offers out there.

Year of the Large GPS Screen- 2010

This year, the larger 5-inch screen really went mainstream, especially for Black Friday. All but gone are the standard screen (3.5-inch) deals for Black Friday. I think it's worth spending the extra money for the larger screens, a 4.3" screen is enough, but a 5" screen is great. Don't go for a 7" screen unless you have special circumstances because they are unwieldy to handle. Those special circumstances might be RV driving....
