GPS Shootout: TomTom vs Navman vs Garmin vs Uniden

Standalone GPS units still have their place, primarily on our car windscreens. But which GPS unit should you buy?
Over at, I’ve put the latest and greatest GPS satellite navigation systems through their paces to determine the deals from the duds. Click on each link to go through to the reviews
Navman Mivue Drive LM: Premium GPS devices have to try harder than ever to stay relevant in the smartphone age. By marrying a crash camera into its hero GPS, Navman’s made that effort, producing a device that serious drivers will get exceptional value from.
Uniden IGO500: “Uniden’s iGO500 is pretty cheap these days, but that’s because it’s been on the market for a long time, and it shows when compared to more full-feature standalone GPS units.”
Garmin Nuvi 2589 LMT: Garmin’s updated premium Nuvi GPS keeps things simple, and that’s a big plus.
TomTom GO 60: Given that the GO 60 sells for exactly the same price as the much nicer GO 500, there really isn’t much of a reason to consider TomTom’s ‘budget’ GPS in this size.
