Here Are The Top 10 Best 5-inch GPS As Of October, 2021

5-inch GPS systems are gaining popularity over 4.3-inch models mainly because they offer a widescreen experience, allowing some manufacturers to innovate in the way they display junctions -- some are able to show the turn instructions on the left side while letting you see the real world picture on the right side, a 3D terrain representation or even 3D buildings and surrounding landmarks. However, keep in mind that not all 5-inch GPS units share the same display resolution. So, image fineness can end up being an important issue too.
