Few motoring innovations have been as widely embraced as that of the GPS system (better known as ‘sat navs’ in the UK). This handheld device can be attached to your windscreen and guide you to your destination using its comprehensive in-built database of maps.
In the infographic below, Woodstock Motors (http://www.woodstockmotors.co.uk/) identified some of the best GPS devices on the market, as well as recommending several mobile apps that fulfil the same purpose. The selection of devices is broken down into three pricing categories:
- Low-cost budget options such as the TomTom Start 40
- Mid-range good value options such as the Garmin Drivesmart 50 LM
- Elite, top of the range options such as the TomTom GO 6000
The infographic also alludes to the ever-increasing usage of smartphones for everyday functions by highlighting some of the most popular apps for road navigation. It comes as no surprise that Waze and Google Maps are included, these two proving especially popular with motorists who want to enjoy the benefits of GPS but don’t have the budget for a standalone device.
If you’re stumped as to what GPS device or apps you should get, let this infographic help with your eventual decision.
