Gift GPS - Find the right one

Finding a gift GPS can be a difficult task with all the different models and the technical terms associated with buying a GPS.  Have you considered giving a gift card and letting your special someone pick the GPS.

This page covers Garmin automotive GPS which are the type of GPS most people are seeking.  The prices on this page are based on Amazon.com pricing which you will find is very competitive.  Also, Amazon does not charge for shipping your gift GPS.

I highly recommend that your GPS speak street names so you do not give a gift that forces the driver to take her/his eyes off the road to read the street name on the display.  Most new GPS speak street names, but double check that it does.

The GPS below are the suggested gift GPS.  These are from the new 2012 products from Garmin.  You can see the current pricing on the Amazon display with the GPS picture.  Click the link below the picture to go to the GPS product page on Amazon for more information about the particular GPS.

 

The lowest priced gift GPS that speaks street names is the Garmin Nuvi 30.  This is the standard sized Garmin automotive GPS with a diagonal display of 3.5 inches.

This GPS has all the basic features to make a great gift.

This model does not offer lifetime maps.

 

The next step up is the Garmin Nuvi 40.  The display size is 4.3 inches diagonally versus 3.5 inches for the Nuvi 30.

It makes reading the display easier, but all other features are very similar to the Nuvi 30.

Garmin Nuvi 40LM

 

The next step up is the Garmin Nuvi 50.  The display size is 5 inches diagonal dimension.

It makes reading the display even easier, but all other features are very similar to the Nuvi 40.

This information should help you select a GPS for that special person.  Good luck in your search for that special gift.

Give an Amazon gift card to your special person and let them pick their own GPS.  You can email the gift card or print it on your own printer for immediate delivery. 

Gift Cards are great gifts to give.
