The Newest GPS Brands And Best Models (January 2017)


GPS navigation systems have evolved to a point where users generally expect free lifetime map updates (roughly 15% of roads change each year) and a speed limit indicator. Displays are larger, some as large as 7 inches, but the bulk of the market revolves around 5-inch car GPS systems.

The current best car GPS 2017 is the Garmin DriveSmart 60LMT and the 2nd-best model is the Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT. Here is the full top 10 list, followed by special categories and, finally, a complete list of car GPS brands and models.
