One of the hottest gifts this holiday season is going to be GPSs. Everyone, at some point in their life, has gotten lost multiple times while on the road and owning a GPS these days seems almost as necessary as having a cell phone.
In case you want a general idea of what to look for in GPSs, you can check out Gadgetell’s Buying Guide for GPSs. However, if you are in need of a GPS and plan to buy one on Black Friday, then you will want to know what’s going to be sold at a cheap price and where it’s going to be sold.
We have three different GPS companies to talk about – TomTom, Magellan, and Garmin. Overall, we have four different GPS models that are going to be sold in many different stores. First, let’s begin with the TomTom One 125, which is going to be sold at Sears, Circuit City, Office Max, RadioShack, and Navy Exchange – all for the same price of $99.99.
This GPS comes with a 3.5 inch touch screen, voice guidance capabilities, FM Traffic updates, and maps of US and Canada. Right now, this GPS is available for $179.99 at Circuit City, so it definitely will be marked down by a lot come Black Friday.
Next up, we have the Magellan RoadMate 1200, which is going to be available at Meijer, Military BX, Sears, Target, and Navy Exchange. Meijer will be selling it for $89.99, Military BX for $95.00, Sears for $99.99, Target for $99.99, and Navy Exchange for $99.99. If there is a Meijer store located near you and you want to buy this GPS, you should probably head over there first to see if they have it in stock. Now, this GPS features a 3.5 inch touch screen, 1.3 million POIs, SD memory expansion, Auto-Route recalculation, as well as a Dash Mount. I went to the Target website for this GPS as well as the Sears website and right now they are selling this for $199.99 and $149.99, respectively. Again, this gives you some perspective on how much GPSs are being marked down.
Moving on, we have the Garmin nuvi 260 only available at Circuit City for $149.99. This GPS comes with a 3.5 inch touch screen, SD memory expansion, maps of the United States and Canada, picture display, many POIs, and voice guidance. Also, this GPS is available right now for $249.99 at Circuit City.
Lastly, we have the Garmin nuvi 260W, which is only available at Best Buy for $189.99. This comes with maps of North America, a 4.3 inch QVGA TFT LCD touch screen with 320 x 240 resolution, SD memory expansion, automatic rerouting, and a high-sensitivity receiver, meaning it will calculate available routes fast. Also comes with voice guidance, POIs, conversion calculators, 2D and 3D mapping, and a battery life of up to 5 hours. This is available right now at Best Buy for $299.99.
