UPDATE: This model has been discontinued.
The Garmin GPS V is an older unit, still popular due to its relatively (considering the fact that it comes with Garmin’s City Select software) low price. Not only that, it also comes with an auto mount and cigarette lighter power adapter. The GPS V can be used horizontally in your car, or vertically as a handheld. This unit is a deal, but it is also last generation technology–only 19 MB of memory, a serial cable interface, and a monochrome screen.
55 reviewers at Amazon gave the GPS V a 4 out of 5 star rating.
