Cyber Monday GPS Deals Already Today

Amazon is running Cyber Monday deals already today - there are some good ones to be had. The deals are running in the 40% off range for in-car navigation, and depending on the category, there are other deals that are up to 50% off. All pretty good.

If you are looking for an in-car unit, I would recommend the following features:

  • Lifetime maps - you can get updated maps for free when you connect your GPS to your computer. You can do this a few times a year to keep up with road changes.
  • 5" screen - For about an extra $10, you can get the larger screen. The extra real estate will make data entry easier.
  • Advanced Lane Guidance - this gives you a quick look at what lane to be in when the highways get weird.

If you are really in traffic, and need to deal with it on a regular basis, I would recommend the higher quality traffic coverage that comes with the TomTom Go LIVE models. They use a GSM modem, and send out more detailed conditions that can get you around traffic on a regular basis.

nuvi1390Front.jpg
Amazon has another Deal fo the Day for you - this time it's the high end Nuvi 1370T, a feature packed unit that is pretty well priced at $159.

Garmin does its usual job of solid routing, but adds in maps of North America and Europe, Free lifetime traffic updates, Lane assistance (shows you which lane to be in as you approach highway intersections), and Bluetooth handsfree calling through your compatible phone. The Nuvi 1370T debuted a year ago with a list price over $400, it's now $159 today. Great unit to pick up if you are driving this summer on a European vacation - very inexpensive unit with Euro maps. If not, the feature set is still very good for this price.

More Amazing Amazon GPS Deals - TomTom GPS Units Up to 40% off

Amazon continues to hit it out of the park offering up so many deals, it is hard to keep track of them.

TomTom is selling a large array of GPS units for up to 40% off. What amazes me is that there is such a robust selection right around the $100 mark, starting as low as about $89 for a decent widescreen. I can't even recommend that you get a "standard" 3.5-inch screen anymore with these prices. The widescreen is such an advantage with little up-charge.

A few to consider:

Widescreen - 4.3-inch

  • TomTom XL 340S - $89 - with text to speech (Says street names), advanced lane guidance (images to help get you in the right exit lane at complex highway interchanges) and IQ routes (to give more accurate route times)
  • TomTom XL 340TM - $119 - Same as the "S" but adds lifetime map upgrades and lifetime traffic reports in covered cities.

Widescreen - 5.0-inch

  • TomTom XXL 540S - $99 - with text to speech (Says street names), advanced lane guidance (images to help get you in the right exit lane at complex highway interchanges) and IQ routes (to give more accurate route times)
  • TomTom XXL 540TM - $129 - Same as the "S model but adds lifetime map upgrades and lifetime traffic reports in covered cities.

For the extra $10 on the respective models - really think hard about the 5-inch units - the extra space can really help.
