One of the most popular GPS brands on the market, Tom Tom GPS systems can help you to find your way when you need it the most.
Why you need a GPS
Many customers wonder why they would buy a Tom Tom GPS unit, when they have a navigation function on their phone. Unlike the map function on your smartphone, a GPS system will give you directions even if you are without phone reception. This function also makes a Tom Tom GPS unit perfect for people who need regular navigational help and don't want to use up data or battery.
There are many different GPS units available on eBay and some of the most reputable brands include Tom Tom, Garmin, Magellan and Rand Macnally. For added safety, some GPS have a voice control feature so you can activate the GPS with your voice and keep your hands-on the wheel. If you take a lot of calls in the car, perhaps look for a GPS unit that pairs with your phone so you can talk and read texts on-the-go.
Features to look for
When shopping for a GPS unit check the listed features and visual screen display. The best GPS screens have a resolution of at least 480 x 272 pixels to give you a sharp picture. If you’re driving in the city you may want to select a Tom Tom GPS has an inbuilt traffic function so that you can adjust your route to avoid accidents and delays. If you live in a smaller city or town a more basic model that tells you of upcoming turns, your current speed and the time and distance remaining until you reach your destination may be enough.
Your Tom Tom GPS should come with preloaded maps and inbuilt directional data. However, the roads in your area are subject to change, so be aware that you may need to update your maps regularly if your GPS unit does not automatically update.
