Gps Car Devices

Garmin, TomTom, Mio, and Magellan are the currently most popular brands by market share. Garmin is ranked no. 1 in the United States, the world's largest market for GPS devices. In 2007, it held 47% of the total U.S. GPS market. TomTom is the most popular brand in Western Europe, taking 38% of the European GPS market in 2007 (http://www.gpsmagazine.com/2008/05/gps_brands_market_share_data_f.php). Mio is gaining ground (against TomTom) in Europe, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe (http://www.mio.com/ee/mio-technology-press-releases-mio-leads-the-GPS-market-in-Central-Eastern-Europe.htm).

Best Gps Navigation Device

Garmin is considered the world leader in consumer-grade GPS receivers. The company was founded by Gary Burrell and Min H. Kao (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garmin). Garmin receivers are well-known for being user friendly and for exhibiting very few hardware and software errors. The sensitivity and accuracy of Garmin GPS receivers are at par with those of the other leading makers. Garmin also offers free firmware and basemap updates on all their units and also free detailed map updates for some units (http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/). Also, Garmin's technical support (help desk) team is considered by many to be the best in the business (http://forum.ctc.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=12412).

Car Tomtom

TomTom has 13 different self-contained car-GPS models in four categories (GO LIVE, GO, XL, and ONE). TomTom also has an exclusive built-in model for Renault automobiles, the Carminat. TomTom allows customers one free detailed map update within 30 days after the activation of their respective receivers. TomTom has a unique “Map Share” system that allows registered users to post map updates or corrections on the TomTom website. Other users, in turn, can selectively download and apply these updates/corrections onto their particular TomTom receiver (http://www.tomtom.com/page/mapshare).

Best Garmin Gps System

The most feature-packed Garmin car-GPS systems belong to the nüvi 705-series (four available models). In particular, the nüvi 775 (and later, the 780) can be considered to be the most sophisticated of all the Garmin automobile GPS receivers since it has just about all of the latest extra features that aid navigation in addition to the basic location and routing functions (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=134&ra=true; http://cargpsreviews.net/). However, for sheer simplicity, reliability, and ease of use, the Garmin nüvi 205-series is still considered by many as the best in the lot (http://wize.com/gps-devices/brand/garmin).
