First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best budget GPS devices
- — 16 November, 2010 15:20
Now has never been a better time to buy a GPS navigation device.
Spending less doesn't mean your navigation experience will be an inferior one — aside from giving you turn-by-turn directions, even the cheapest GPS units will allow you to locate points of interest (POIs), save your favourite locations and explore new places. The main differences between a budget GPS unit and a high-end one are generally unnecessary add-ons like Bluetooth hands-free capabilities, live traffic information, MP3 playback and FM transmitters.
We've rounded-up our favourite budget GPS units on the market from Garmin, TomTom, Navman and Navigon.
2 / 7
The inclusion of a Bluetooth hands-free speakerphone makes the Garmin nuvi 1260 GPS unit good value for money. If the smaller display and the limitations it brings doesn't concern you, then this GPS unit offers an excellent navigational experience for a fairly low price.
