best garmin gps for the money

You are looking to buy a gps and you want to make the most out of your money, right? What is the best garmin gps for the money? First of all, let me say that Garmin is the way to go. Not only is this the best brand to go with but if you ever travel, this brand is a great option because of the ease of getting maps for that location that is compatible with the brand.

In this article I would like to share with you the top three best garmin gps for the money:

#1 Garmin nüvi 1450LMT 5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates

The screen is such that it is easy to read in sunlight. You know how it is with some screens like a lapto where you can't see well when there is sunlight. This Gps has a great screen that you can read it well in sunlight.

Another feature is that you have free life time maps and traffic updates. What this means is that as there is construction or changes you will have your maps updated. The downside of the traffic feature is that it does have ads from time to time pop up.

This gps also gives you the option of taking a route that saves you on fuel. Of the ones I mention it is one of the newer ones. It is a little more expensive than the other two I mention though Amazon always has great discounts. The last time I checked this one was about 40% off.

#2 Garmin nüvi 265W/265WT 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic

This is another great option when considering the best garmin gps for the money. You should be able to get a lower price on this one. Like the previous Garmin model I mentioned this has all of the normal gps features such as text to speech and preloaded maps and the the free traffic alerts (great to avoid getting stuck in traffic). The traffic updates are "free" but like all three of these they do come with a cost (as it is so often with free stuff, right?). You have little adds that pop up but apparently not very often. But you may want to read more on what customers who have placed their review say about it as you try to find the best garmin gps for the money.

One thing that is really cool about this one is that you can make phone calls via bluetooth. Your cell phone connects wirelessly to the gps and you can make phone calls by dialing, talking and listening through the gps device.

# 3 Garmin nüvi 1350LMT 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates

This one is also similar to the first model that was mentioned. This one has a neat feature called Lane Assist. The gps receiver will tell you ahead of time which lane you should be in so that you are able to be in the right lane for the exit you need to take. This is one is mid price compared to the other two.

So what is the best garmin gps for the money? I think any of these three are great buys without having to spend tons of money. In deciding what the best garmin gps for the money is, it will come down to how much you want to spend since each one of these has a slightly different price.

Bottom line: go with either the Garmin nüvi 1450LMT (it's newer but it costs a little more) or the Garmin nüvi 265W/265WT which is older but has a lower cost.
