    Need helpful advice

    I would like to get a GPS device to use in my older model car. I have only a tracfone so that is not helpful(as most smart phones have) Is there something I can plug in and take with me when I travel? I know of devices but which one is easiest to use?

    Check Staples. They sell them for car use. Mine is a TomTom. Plugs into outlets in the car.

    Good brands are TomTom, Garmin, and Magellan.

    We have Garmans and like them. You can do updates online for them although you may have to pay for the update. Don't do what I did, I got a warning to update on my garman and ignored it a few times. I got out and it died and would not give directions, after that I got the update.
    I would imagine all the GPS devices have updates you will need to do to them.

    most NEW Garmin's have life time updates for free included.

    Our one we had to pay to get the updates for it but it is a older one. We have a newer on that is maybe 2 years old, not sure if the updates are free or not on that one.
    I guess that is something I should look and see. LOL
