The Portable GPS Compared and Explained

When I decided to purchase a portable GPS for my car I couldn’t believe the number of units available in the market place. I had no idea what I needed or what I should look for. All in all it looked like an impossible task even taking into consideration that I have a technical background.

It was then that I decided to create a web site that would help the consumer figure out what they needed and to compare the available units that met their needs.

We have attempted to layout the site to allow you to compare units by manufacture and the features offered with each unit. In addition we explain what these features do in plain English.

As GPS systems evolved so did the number of features offered by the manufacturer. Many of these features were redundant or just silly and not needed by the user. After all the primary objective of a GPS unit is to get you from point “A” to point “B” with the least amount of complications.

In addition to automobile GPS units we have also expanded to compare Golfing GPS units, Pet GPS units and Personal Trackers GPS systems.

It would be impossible for us to have personally tested every unit on the market.As it would be beyond our abilities both time-wise and financially to do so. I also felt the best test of a GPS system is the consensus of opinions of people just like you and me that have used the unit in the same manner that we would. Thus, we have included reviews of each unit by users that have purchased and reviewed them on other sites as we do not sell anything on this site.

I sincerely hope that my efforts have given you some guidance and help in your future purchase of your portable GPS unit.
