Let’s be honest here: We are guys, and guys don’t stop and ask for directions. We just don’t. But every once in a while we don’t know where the hell we are. We’ve found two GPS systems that will help if you ever get in one of those rare situations. The GPS-500 from Harmon Kardon is a tightly integrated system with an easy-to-use touch screen, highspeed 2-D and 3-D navigation and turn-by-turn spoken directions (available in English, French or Spanish). Since a digital audio and video player are built in, you will not only know where you are going, but also be able to make the trip more enjoyable in the time it takes you to reach your destination. With five hours of battery life, the GPS-500 can easily be detached
from your car and used as a portable entertainment device.
The Mio Digi Walker C520 is a pocketsized GPS device that is quick and easy to set up right out of the box. It comes preloaded with U.S. maps, denoting over 6 million points of interest. It also features a split-screen interface display, voice guidance and hands-free calling via Bluetooth technology. Pick up either of these units and you’ll never get lost again. Not that that ever happened before.
