We’ll kick off our list of the best GPS navigation systems with this model, the Garmin Nuvi. Garmin is, of course, one of the market leaders in this sector, and the Nuvi range of GPS devices has been at the vanguard of their offerings for a number of years.
This model is frankly packed with useful features that we love to see when making a GPS review. The screen is nice and bright and at 5 inches across large enough for a comfortable display without taking up too much windshield space. The device has reactive touch screen controls but can also be voice-controlled – that’s always a good feature to see.
The device will flash up photorealistic, birds-eye views of junctions to help you orientate yourself as well as alert you to upcoming services, restaurants, hospitals, and fuel stops. That can be very helpful for forward planning supply stops on longer road trips. That is al backed up with lifetime map updates and traffic reports, all for no additional cost.
