Best Value GPS Navagation System


BEST 2008 GPS Navigation System depends on how much you want to spend. For about $150 I recommend the Magellan Maestro 4000 4.3-Inch Widescreen and for under $350 I recommend the Garmin nüvi 660 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Navigation unit.

 Best Portable GPS Navigation Systems
More navigation and entertainment features

If you often travel to new places, have trouble reading maps, or simply hate to ask for directions, you might want to consider a portable GPS navigation system. Once you give it a destination, the system can plot out a route, deliver spoken directions, and display each turn as you drive, or in some cases, walk. Most units let you choose guidance options that include plotting the shortest, fastest, and even a toll-free route. An internal database also includes common points of interest such as gas stations, and ATMs, and the nav system can route you to the nearest one. You can even choose a nearby restaurant by the type of food.
Although not always as easy to use as the in-dash systems available on many new vehicles, portable systems are catching up. Features like internal, rechargeable batteries and pre-loaded North America map databases are now commonly included on budget systems. More premium features such as real-time traffic reporting are becoming available on more affordable units.
Portables have the distinct advantage of being easy to move from car to car, enabling a family to share a unit or lend it to others. Their low weight and small size are well suited to long-distance business travel and vacations by plane (for use in a rental car when you arrive), or for walking and biking tours (for use as a handheld device).
Units have decreased in size since the first portables came on the market, but that is not always good. If a device is too small, it can be hard to read or operate. We find that the 4 to 41/2 inch screens, measured diagonally, are a good compromise between portability and usability. If you plan to use the device frequently, we recommend a compact unit with a wide screen, giving a larger map view, easier-to-read information, and bigger touch-screen buttons.

Garmin nüvi 660 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator

This is the most elegant AIO (all in one) GPS navigation solution I've come across to date. IMO, it represents the best compromise between size and functionality on the market today. Beyond this point, increasing the screen size enters the diminishing return territory. The SiRFstarIII chipset, while no longer the absolute best on the market, remains a reliable workhorse with rapid satellite acquisition under even less than ideal conditions. The mapping details are excellent though, as with all mapping programs, is not beyond reproach. The 660 has the most recent highly detailed City Navigator NT maps.

The voice prompts are loud, clear and timely. The ease of use is just fantastic and the visibility and quality of the display are now the gold standard in the industry with a 4.3" WQVGA LCD screen and 480 x 272 pixels. It uses the same low reflection screen as the 360. The Integrated Bluetooth wireless technology with a mic and speaker lets you make hands-free mobile phone calls.

POI access is excellent and can be navigated to much more simply than the TomTom unit which requires additional cumbersome steps. The attachment system for the Nuvi is superb and very secure. You can access your POIs directly by name rather than having to go through a cumbersome category menu and then only getting the POIs by proximity as is the case with the TomTom 910. Garmin simply blows TomTom away in the POI functionality department.

Low Price Free Shipping
Easy to use Feature Rich
If you don't need a lot of fancy features, just a GPS unit to get you to your destination. This unit features a nice large 4.3 inch screen, and is extremely easy to program and use. It is very accurate and a great buy. The voice instructions are clear and easy to understand. 

The menu structure is intuitive and simple to navigate. It has been used around town and on a 400-mile journey and I have yet to experience a hiccup, either in terms of the stability of the unit's operation or in the directions I received. I especially liked the ability look in advance at services available at exits along the way. In addition, I find the unit to be useful at night when traveling in areas that I am not real familiar with.

If you make a wrong turn or if there is unknown road construction for example, it very quickly recalculates, I'd say within 10 seconds. Another feature that is convenient is the capability to input multiple destinations.

The Maestro 4000 includes built-in AAA TourBook® guide travel information, giving you instant access to service details and Diamond ratings from the world's leading travel expert. Quickly find AAA approved lodgings and restaurants, AAA member roadside assistance details, and discounts available.

Best 2008 DVD Copy Software:  Some of the main reasons I chose DVD neXt COPY to use, and now promote, are its quality, access to well done tutorials, helpful user guides, and an excellent user forum. I upgraded from Express to the Standard edition to be able to trim unneeded subtitles and extras so I could fit dual layer movie DVDs on a inexpensive single layer DVD at the highest quality.  A few months ago I upgrade again to the Professional edition to copy movies to my iPOD.  All the editions are great but the Professional edition has definitely spoiled me.

The Best PC based DVD copier as it also copies ANY DVD
