The Newest GPS Brands And Best Models (September 2018)
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.
As of September 2018, the best car GPS 2018 is the Garmin Nuvi DriveSmart 61 LMT-S, while the second best model is the Garmin DriveSmart 70LMT. Here is the full top 10 list, then special categories and a full list of car GPS brands and models.
