PORTABLE NAVIGATION SYSTEM PRODUCTS:
Nobody stops to ask for directions anymore, in fact most people rarely even need map when they travel. When you have the TomTom ONE GPS Portable Navigation System you will never again need a map to get where you are going.
The TomTom Navigation System uses GPS to help you find your way anywhere in the United States or Canada. When you're ready to begin your journey simply plug the TomTom in and go. This GPS system features detailed 3D and 2D graphics and offers you turn-by-turn voice guidance throughout your trip. Its 3.5 inch anti-glare touch screen gives you a great visual of your route as well. Whether you're driving for pleasure or in a hurry to get somewhere, the TomTom allows you to pick the quickest, shortest, or most scenic route.
And that's not all this portable, lightweight device has to offer. When you get your TomTom GPS you will also get a car charger, even though it can run without a cord for up to 2 hours; a USB cable, an SD card, TomTom software, and a windshield mount. It also includes Bluetooth technology so you can enjoy other services such as real-time traffic and weather information. You'll be able to have your trip go as smoothly as possible by avoiding heavy traffic or weather that causes difficult driving conditions.
Make your travels and vacations more enjoyable and care-free when you have the TomTom ONE GPS Portable Navigation System to guide your way.
Over the past few years, I have become a huge fan of GPS systems. Most of the units I test are aftermarket add-ons for PDA's, Smart Phones and Handhelds - but the trend seems to be shifting to fully functional, portable all in one units. One of the newer units is the brand new TeleType WorldNav 3100.
At first blush - this is a very slick looking, nicely sized portable unit that mounts to the windshield. The Li-Ion battery means that it is also portable and can truly be taken anywhere. How does it stack up against the competition?
GPS navigation is one of those inventions that can truly change the way you drive. Knowing and trusting your GPS to get you where you need to be is just an amazing concept. As I have found, however, some GPS units can also cause confusion and can get the driver disoriented and lost. When I travel, I still tend to do a "Mapquest" to get my bearings and then I use the GPS to guide me there. I am learning to "trust" the GPS - but it isn't easy to "let go."
The advantages of a "Stand alone" unit like the World Nav are many. Unlike add on units to Handhelds and Smart Phones, there is rarely the need to deal with a "Windows" or even a "Palm OS" interface. There is rarely a need to "re-boot" or reset the device and the device can focus its precious memory resources on doing just one thing - navigating.
Stand alone GPS devices also tend to include more information such a broader selection of POI's - (Points of Information.)
The WorldNav 3100 doesn't really break new ground in the GPS world - but what it tries to do is just be better in every way than the competition.
