UPDATE: We’ve created a number of comparison charts to assist you:
- Garmin handheld GPS comparison chart
- Garmin nuvi comparison chart
- Magellan auto GPS comparison chart
- Mio GPS comparison chart
- TomTom compaprison chart
There are so many GPS receivers on the market with similar features; the minute differences between models in a single product line can make buying decisions a real challenge. I’d like to call your attention to some tools that can help make these critical choices a little easier. Garmin and Magellan both have product comparison tools on their sites, which you can use to generate side-by-side comparisons. It won’t help with the Garmin vs.Magellan decision though! Here are the links:
- Garmin handheld comparison page
- Garmin mobile comparison page
- Garmin marine comparison page
- Garmin aviation comparison page
- Magellan product comparison page
You’ll find most of these in the upper-right corner of your screen under the heading Buying a GPS?, along with our GPS Buyers Guide and other useful links.
A special note here to all the new readers coming to us from Engadget and GPS Information.org. You may have missed my recent About Our Reviews post where I explained that, due to the holiday season, readers of GPS Tracklog will be seeing a temporary increase in the frequency of reviews (and posts in general). I will however, continue to intersperse other original posts filled with news, tips and other cool GPS stuff as we go. Poke around the site; I hope you enjoy what you find here.
