The Perfect GPS
GPS Systems For Cars - Find the Perfect GPS
By David Wesenburg
There are times in life where driving can become extremely stressful because you get lost. One thing is sure though, if you have a GPS with you, you will never get lost. In this article, we are going to be going over exactly what you need in GPS systems for cars so you don't waste your money on things you don't need.
The size of the screen can be a big factor when it comes to GPS systems. The smaller the screen is the harder it will be to see where you will be needing to turn. It is best to get a screen between 6 and 7 inches.
After you find a system that has the screen size you like, you need to take a look at its map coverage. It is very important that you find one that covers all of North America (if that is where you are from). The majority of them will cover North America by default. Look for a GPS system that has a USB plug that will allow you to upload maps from your computer.
A new feature that some of the GPS systems are starting to get is the text to speech capability. This makes driving much safer as it allows you to stay focused on the road. Almost all systems have a built speech, but some of the more pricey systems have built in text to speech. When the system has built in text to speech capability, you will actually be told what street to turn on rather than just hearing "turn right in 500 feet".
You need to choose a design that you like, there is no right or wrong for this. But if you find yourself driving different cars often, it is important to get one that allows you to switch from one car to another easily.
