Garmin Nuvi 1300 LM - $119 at Amazon

Another day, another deal - the Nuvi 1300 is a good entry level widescreen that offers a lot of value. Lifetime Map upgrades are included in this unit, a retail value of well over $50 if bought for another model after the fact.

Maps of the 48 states plus Hawaii, and Puerto Rico are included in this unit.

More info on the Garmin Nuvi 1300 here at GPSLodge.

nuvi1390Front.jpg

Yesterday Amazon started a feature on TomTom XXL 540TM for $119, and Amazon just launched a lightning deal for the very high quality Garmin Nuvi 1350 at $125 that I would imagine will sell out.

The Nuvi 1350 is a 4.3-inch unit with a lot of features including text to speech (says street names), maps of North America, thin design, enhanced operating interface making it easier to use, and if needed, pedestrian navigation.

TomTomXXL540TM.jpg

Amazon has another amazing deal right now and the TomTom XXL 540TM is only $119; that's a 5-inch screen, lifetime maps and traffic for $119? Wow.

Maps of US/Canada, IQ Routes for realistic travel time estimates, lane guidance to make sure you know which lane to be in at crazy interchanges, 7 million Points of Interest and more. This is the best deal on a GPS I have seen since Black Friday - jump on it if you want to buy a GPS.

Black Friday Deals - Amazon: TomTom XL 335 T - $79

While WalMart is selling thousands of TomTom XL 335 SE units right now for $79, you can get essentially the same unit plus lifetime traffic coverage for the same price at Amazon.

The TomTom XL 335 T has lifetime traffic updates, along with IQ Routes, Advanced LaneGuidance, a 4.3" screen and more.

Amazon is offering a limited time sale on these and they will be available until about 1:30PM Eastern time.

Later today Amazon is teasing that they will be selling a Golf GPS ("This GPS gives you an eagle's eye view of the hole to provide critical distances you need to play confidently and shoot lower scores.")

Amazon Black Friday "Week" - Best Values Going

TomTom540_sm.jpg

The deals keep coming, but I have to say that right now, the TomTom XXL 540M is the best value out there. Sure there are cheaper deals, but right now, the value is here.

TomTom XXL 540M Features

You get a 5" screen, text to speech, lane guidance, and lifetime map updates for the unit. Right now that means that you can update the maps about quarterly giving you pretty much the freshest maps available in a stand alone navigator. (This is the XXL 540S model plus Lifetime Maps)

Compare vs. Black Friday Deals

The price of $99 isn't going to be beaten for value on Black Friday GPS Deals, (See our Black Friday Buying Guide) and so why not buy now and focus on other stuff later this week?

The TomTom XXL 540M is only $99, and being the best GPS seller at Amazon at this writing, the inventory may not last.

OK - Too Late - the price just went up! Check out the other Black Friday All Week GPS Deals

Black Friday GPS Buying Guide - 2010

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....

Best Black Friday GPS Deal Under $50

  • NONE - There is one refurbished Magellan at PepBoys for $49 - there are so many great deals out there, don't opt for a refurb; spend a few more dollars and get a great product. Sorry PepBoys.

Best Black Friday GPS Deal Under $80

  • Runner up is TomTom 540T at Radio Shack - A 5" screen that also has lifetime traffic

Garmin Nuvi 295W - $85 Today Only

The Garmin Nuvi 295W looks like an odd bird, but when you realize that it is based on a mobile phone footprint, it stars to make sense. The 3.5-inch widescreen layout is like a 16::9 type layout that offers a little more width and a little less height. The features for the price make this an outstanding value.

It has a built in 3-MP camera, with Wi-fi connectivity to offer you another place to grab email. So, not only can you take a picture, geotag it with the location but email it out from a hotspot, and then move on and browse the internet while connected.

The navigation is Garmin through and through with the added bonus of seeing portrait and landscape navigation layouts. A big plus for a lot of users.

This is an Amazon Deal of the Day - they usually sell out fast.

At Amazon - more on the Garmin Nuvi 295W
