  • Garmin is in my opinion the best GPS conpamy. I have a Garmin Nuvi 205 and a TomTom One and the Nuvi is hands down better. If you want just a basic GPS that gets you from point A to pint B go for a Nuvi 205…The more features you add on such as text to speech street names(the GPS will actually speak out street names instead of just saying turn ___ in ____miles ), mp3 player, bluetooth(cell phone connects to the GPS), voice recognition(speak directions instead of having to type them in), FM Transmitter(hear the directions through the car’s speakers instead of the built-in GPS speaker’s), lane assistance(shows exactly which lane you should be in which is good for highways so you do not miss an exit)You can go with the Garmin Nuvi 855 which has all the above mentioned features for slightly less than $200…On the links there is a chart called Which nfcvi is Best for You? which will assist you in finding the right model of Nuvi based on the features you wantMy last bit of advice is to get a Nuvi that ends with 5 these are the newer models that have extra features like post speed limit
