Car GPS Units 

The introduction of GPS systems has been a boon to all drivers, as we no longer have to rely on road signs or paper maps. GPS units used to be an expensive luxury, but they are now much more accessible. While smartphone apps may now be used to navigate, automobile GPS systems are still an useful purchase for a variety of reasons.

What are the different types of GPS systems for cars?

In general, there are two types of car GPS systems on the market. These are they:

  • In-dash car GPS units - Many premium and mid-range cars now come with in-dash GPS units as standard equipment. These units are mounted in the car's dashboard and range in complexity from a simple navigation system to ones with numerous capabilities. You can also purchase in-dash units from outside sources to install in your dash.
  • Mountable GPS units - These are freestanding GPS units that you can buy for your car. A holder can be used to attach these devices to the dashboard or the windscreen. If your automobile doesn't have an in-dash GPS unit, a mountable unit is a smart investment.

When I have smartphone navigation apps, why should I buy a car GPS unit?

While smartphone navigation programs can get you from point A to point B, they can drain your phone's battery quickly, leaving you stuck if your phone dies and you don't have a car charger on hand. When utilizing these apps, you must have a data plan activated, which means you will receive notifications and messages from other apps as well. A dedicated GPS unit does not require continual Internet connection and has a longer battery life. It also lacks the distractions that other apps provide.

How do you pick a GPS unit for your car?

Purchasing a car GPS device is simple and quick if you follow these steps:

1. Determine whether you want a mountable or in-dash unit. Measure the size of the space in your dashboard before purchasing an in-dash device so you can get the proper size later.

2. Determine whatever characteristics you want in your unit. Portability, display quality, USB input, data memory, flexibility to eliminate highways and tolls or select the fastest or shortest route, sophisticated lane guiding, included dashcam, and pedestrian mode are some of the features to look into. These are only a few of the popular features; you may encounter others.

3. Examine various models and manufacturers. Garmin, TomTom, and Magellan are some well-known brands of automotive GPS devices. All of these businesses provide a number of models with various features, so you should be able to find something that meets your requirements.

4. Purchase, install, and use Once you've made your decision, all you have to do is purchase the unit and install it in your vehicle. If you don't already have one, keep in mind that you may need to purchase an additional mount to hold your mountable car GPS.
