Best selling GPS for April 2013


Our top sellers for April were the Garmin nuvi 40LM and 50LM, and the Oregon 450

Around the first of each month, we take a look back to see which models our readers have bought over the past month. The rankings below are based on the number of units sold on GPS Tracklog through our various partners like Amazon and REI. On the auto side, the Garmin nuvi 40LM and 50LM shared top billing, while the Oregon 450 returned to the top spot on the handheld list. I’ll also note the appearance of some recently released models – the Garmin nuvi 2597LMT and the Oregon 600 (I hope to have one of the latter in hand in the next day or two). On to the charts…

I’ve only listed the top eight models on the handheld side. Even then, the last few only had a couple units sold of each model, so take it all with a grain of salt.

About the numbers

One last note — while I do get aggregate reports each day on what purchases folks make through my site, I have no way of knowing who made them. When you follow my links, I get a small fee with each purchase you make (it comes out of the merchant’s pocket, not yours). This is the only way I can justify the time and effort it takes to manage GPS Tracklog. Thank you for your support, which allows me to keep bringing you the latest GPS reviews, news, tips and tricks!

  1. I am in the market for a GPS for my car. I’ve been reading all the sites and trying to decide between Magellan and Garmin. I recently took a trip with my brothers Magellan and it was not fancy but got me where I needed to go. I notice that on your top 10 sold they are all Garmin. Does that mean Magellan doesn’t cut the mustard????
    I don’t need any fancy stuff but want voice directions and would rather not have it tell what building is on the corner. (things change), and would like it to tell me which upcoming exits have gas and lodging? I’m a senior lady that doesn’t travel much but am thinking of buying a motor home and doing a bit more traveling. Which unit would you suggest?
