TomTom XL 350T GPS
While many have ditched the dedicated GPS receiver in favor of a smartphone with integrated navigation, there are still plenty of consumers out there who want a dedicated GPS device, separate from their phone and every other gadget. If the road warrior in you yearns for a new GPS device, then you cannot go wrong with the XL 350T from TomTom.
The 350T is a 4.3-inch device with a relatively small footprint (3.2" x 4.7" x 1", 7 ounces). Some of the features on the XL 350T outdo the older navigation devices you're familiar with, as well as some of the modern competition. The dash/windshield mount is no longer a separate contraption; rather the EasyPort mount stows away in the back of the device. TomTom also includes a free lifetime's worth of traffic updates, so while new maps will still cost you, at least you can avoid busy freeways and construction sites for the foreseeable future.
Speaking of map updates, the days of using an SD card are long gone. TomTom HOME software for your computer at home makes map and firmware updating a breeze. Once you're updating and clued into whatever traffic lies ahead, the only limitations on your asphalt and concrete journey is your gas tank.
