Mio Digiwalker C220: Low Cost Portable Gps
(Yes, I know that’s a map of England, even though yours will come with U.S. maps)
The C220 lists for just $249.95 and is a good choice for a first-time GPS or for a second car. For starters, it’s got a nice 3.5-inch touch color touch screen interface with an anti-glare surface. The DigiWalker C220 comes with full maps of the entire U.S. pre-loaded on an SD card, and provides turn-by-turn voice directions in English, Spanish or French (or other languages in other regions.)
Plus, it’s got a rechargeable Li-ion battery pack built in (estimated 4.5 hour battery life) so you can take the device anywhere you go, not just in your car. It’s even got specialized profiles for walking, biking, motorcycling or driving. The C220 should be in stores this month.
