GPSLodge.com is a blog that is dedicated to news and reviews on GPS navigation systems. We have been actively writing GPSLodge.com since mid-2005 and have enjoyed watching the GPS market develop in the US and globally. We try to write about news that is relevant to the consumer and try to put into perspective what the news means to you and me. I have to tell you that I love this stuff and it's incredibly fun to see the market booming, and the technology developing so quickly.
Scott is the editor of GPSLodge.com and is based near Boston, MA, USA. I started using GPS systems when planning and leading week-long bicycling trips with friends, navigating only with a GPS. That hobby grew into a passion and finally this Blog. My "day job" for a long time was in market research and product development for a large consumer goods company where I learned to listen to the consumer, design products for him/her and take a critical approach to how consumers interact with products.
Reviews - GPSLodge.com reviews stand alone GPS devices, in the automotive, handheld and fitness categories, as well as other GPS related products and software. We don't accept these units as gifts. All GPS units are on loan from the manufacturers, or their agents and returned after a reasonable review period. We will also buy the unit ourselves for review. We do not accept gifts or keep review units at GPSLodge.com.
We try to review as many units first hand has possible, as we feel that it's important to use the unit to be able to accurately "review" it. When I review a GPS or related product here at GPSLodge.com I will almost always use that unit for several weeks to truly learn the ins and outs of using the unit and present what I think is important to know about using the product.
Unlike some Blogs, we also do not accept payment for articles or reviews.
On many occasions, GPSLodge.com will write about other reviews covering GPS units that are written by other authors on the internet. GPSLodge.com thinks that it's valuable to be able to present other opinions for its readers and will call out in the article that the review is was written by others and will link to that review in the article. We do not try to pass off reviews by others as our own.
