|My previous Tom Tom XL got banged inside car many times as the suction holder gave up because prolonged direct sunlight/heat. It had lost the speaker for some time, and recently after it was handled by a friend, it died completely. Time to buy a new GPS. Its a very valuable tool if you travel even little bit and not sure about your local roads. It saves lot of time, gas and most importantly guides you back on the correct road when you go in a wrong route.|
Gramin is one the most popular names in navigation today
I have found this invaluable tool to navigate specially the urban part of western countries.
Update:5 years writing this article, Both cars i bought have inbuilt GPS so that i do not have to scramble to connect gps or hook it to the windshield on need basis. In future they will all be tightly integrated in in cars rather than being optional. I already see this in cars like Tesla that has auto pilot that heavily uses GPS data.
