Save yourself the humiliation of having to stop and ask directions on your next lengthy road trip: invest in Garmin's eMap Deluxe. The eMap GPS receiver will give you accurate mapping information, directions, and even help you manage and track your journeys.
For those unfamiliar with the term, GPS (global positioning system) involves 24 satellites that circle the planet. At any given time, the eMap makes contact with at least four of them to determine everything from speed to location. So, as long as you're motoring around the great outdoors, you'll be in the know.
It features a detailed 120 x 160 pixel display, backlighting for nighttime navigating, and easily navigable controls. With the eMap's simple cursor control, you should be up and running with almost no effort. Considering this unit only weighs 6.7 ounces, it could easily be the best roadside companion on long drives--or local trips if you're that directionally challenged.
If you're going to do some serious pioneering, you're also in for a good deal of choices. You can catalog 500 waypoints, 2,000 log points, and 10 saved tracks.
Pros: Easy to use; Lightweight; Large, crisp display; Room for extra memory cartridges; Map data fed by satellite good for North America and parts of Europe
Cons: Detailed maps are expensive; Batteries last only about 10 to 12 hours
There is a good deal of map data already loaded, and it comes with a cord so you can recharge it from your car's accessory outlet (the cigarette lighter).
