Choosing a GPS.
A GPS device allows you to easily and safely navigate without draining your smartphone battery. You can also add ease to your outdoor activities with a golf GPS or handheld device for outdoor adventures. You can even keep tabs on your pet or vehicle with a GPS tracking device. With a car GPS, you can shave time off your commute and keep on track while driving through an unfamiliar area. You'll find a variety of GPS navigation options for your car. An in-dash GPS is conveniently located so that it doesn't obstruct your windshield. Some stereo receivers include a GPS function. A portable GPS gives you the option of easily switching the device between multiple vehicles. You can mount on your dashboard and most offer the same functions as in-dash navigation. If you enjoy outdoor adventures, consider a handheld receiver that can fit in your pocket. Find out more about the variety of available features to pick the best GPS system for your needs.
To offer the best navigation, you'll want to ensure your GPS maps are thorough and up to date. Devices come with maps of the United States preloaded. You'll also find options that include maps for other North American and Caribbean countries. Make sure you choose the maps that suit your driving plans. For a realistic bird's-eye view of an area, consider maps that come in 3D. Lifetime map updates are common, and can be downloaded by connecting your device to a computer via USB connection or to a smartphone with a Bluetooth-enabled GPS. For safer driving, some devices feature voice control so you can listen as your GPS gives you turn-by-turn directions. You'll even find options that recognize your voice commands for completely hands-free navigation. For additional convenience, you can avoid getting delayed by a traffic jam with a receiver that informs you of traffic conditions in real time and redirects you to a less-congested route.
