    Black Friday - Amcor A3900 GPS

    The Amcor A3900 GPS is part of the Black Friday Madness this year, and should be offered for around $99. The unit is a standard screen size, 3.5-inch unit that appears to use the iGo base software that is customized for the unit. Mio and others use the same software engine, customized for their liking. For me, with some caveats, the Mios work very well. They have options on their version that offer a lot of capability.

    I have used other units with the iGo software and they perform just fine but hardware can be a concern when running through these lower end "off-name" units. Buttons can stick, or speakers can not be loud enough, etc.

    I have not used the Amcor A3900, so I can't tell you if the unit is good or bad. Considering the other options for Black Friday, if you really want a GPS, there are better more tested units out there for the same price or less, and much better units at slightly higher prices.

    Black Friday GPS Sale - The Sub-$100 GPS!

    Thought it would happen sooner of later, and here it is, the Sub-$100 GPS device. Leave it up to Mio to have the unit for $79 after a $40 rebate at Pep Boys this Black Friday. Recall that Mio rocked the GPS world last year with a $149 deal on the Mio 310x, which at the time was a stunning price.
