Google Maps (or Apple Maps — we're not getting into that argument right now) are fine for finding the quickest way to get to a dinner reservation, but car GPS devices are still best for journeys with more riding on them. (Just ask the New York Times.)

True, the ones with good reviews are few and far between, but they exist. The Garmin DriveSmart 61 GPS Navigator is one of the rare models to have four out of five stars on Amazon, and it's on sale for $65.99 off. It's still full price ($249.99) at Garmin.com.
