Cyber Monday Best GPS Sales and Deals

Not to be outdone, online GPS Sales are still roaring despite the inventory squeeze of a pretty successful Black Friday.

Automotive GPS Gift Guide - don't forget to check out our gift guide this year to cut through the noise and figure out what the top rated GPS units are in each price segment.

Cyber Monday Deals Already!


Amazon has the broadest selection of units at a discount. While the hot deals page below says Black Friday - the deals from the Cyber Monday are reflected in the price. This GPS Deals page is the best collection of discounts that they show in one place so check out the Amazon's GPS Deals Page - Lots of "Hot Deals" going on. Most notably they have:

  • Magellan RoadMate 1220 - $89 - I have been using this for an upcoming review and have been impressed with it. For $89, it has Text to Speech that I think is essential for a good unit.
  • Garmin Nuvi 260W - $114 - a good step up that includes widescreen and text to speech.

Best Buy

BestBuy has several GPS units available with competitive, but not amazing prices on GPS units. The one that is a pretty good value for the money is the:

  • TomTom XXL 540 S - a 5-inch screen super sized unit that offers text to speech and a whole lot more for those who want the extra screen real estate. - More Information


  • TomTom ONE 130 - $79 - standard size screen without text to speech at a very low price.
  • Garmins are available at a doscount, but mostly on their newest, slightly higher priced items. One in particular that I like is the Nuvi 1300 - a widescreen with text to speech for $149 after instant rebate
  • Magellan Roadmate 1470 - $139 which is almost 50% off the $249 regular price. This biggie 4.7-inch widescreen is bigger than the regular 4.3-inch widescreens.


  • TomTom 335 SE - $89 - still left over from Black Friday, this is one of the best deals around. Text to speech and a widescreen.

GPS Steals and Deals - 11/8

It's that time of year, and we have some more deals hitting the stores than normal. Thought I would post a few with some references to online for your consideration or browsing. Don't forget to check out the BLACK FRIDAY deals and sales post that I an updating on a regular basis.

This week's deals:



  • Insignia NS-NAV01 - $79 - my reco is to skip it. Admittedly haven't used it but have heard and seen first hand some disappointing reviews and emails about BestBuy's house brand GPS.
  • TomTom 140S - $149 at Best Buy, $130 at Amazon - Text to speech in a standard size screen (3-5 inch).
  • TomTom XXL 540S - $269 at BestBuy, $256 at Amazon - large 5-inch screen with maps of North America including Mexico. Has lane assist and text to speech.
  • Magellan RoadMate 1440 - $169 at BestBuy, $163 at Amazon - widescreen with lane assist and multi-destination routing. Has Text to Speech.
  • Magellan RoadMate 1445T -$199 at BestBuy, includes widescreen, lane assist, text to speech and adds traffic capabilities.
  • Garmin Nuvi 255WT - $179 at BestBuy, - widescreen with traffic receiver and free lifetime traffic. See My Full Hands on Review of the Nuvi 255W

OfficeMax - offers the Nextar Q4 for $79 - I would recommend spending money now on something else from a name brand that you (and I ) trust, or wait until Black Friday deals to get what you want.

Similarly CVS is offering a $79 GPS for dummies - yes you'd be a dummy to buy this. Spend your money on something you hardly need a manual to use like a Garmin or a TomTom - Black Friday offers a good chance to get high quality at the same price.

TomTom GO 720 - Now $149


This powerful widescreen unit is a pretty good buy at $149. The model has been out for about two years, but ships with updated maps. The TomTom GO 720 includes text to speech, Bluetooth Handsfree, a high quality user interface, the Help me interface and of course the MapShare capability that allows you to note mapping changes and communicate them to TomTom as well as share them with others in the MapShare community.

I thought that the GO 720 was a very solid feeling GPS that performed well when I first reviewed it.
The TomTom GO 720 is available at Amazon
