Does your dad pride himself on being a great driver? He probably thinks that he knows his way around town without a street directory. No matter whether he’s a top driver (or thinks he is), he isn't as capable a navigator as a GPS unit!
This Father's Day, why not give your dad a new GPS unit so he will never get lost again? Aside from giving you turn-by-turn directions, GPS units are great for locating points of interest (POIs), saving your favourite locations and exploring new places, so your next road trip with the family can be even better! We've included five of our favourite budget GPS units.
