What GPS brand is best?
Garmin DriveSmart 61 LMT-S. The best car GPS for most users, with a large screen and easy interface.
Is Garmin or TomTom better?
Yes, Garmin is better at some things than TomTom but, the reverse is also true – TomTom is better than Garmin at other things. In all honesty, whichever brand you end up choosing you won’t go too far wrong. Both TomTom and Garmin produce quality devices that are fairly similar in their offering.
Is Garmin GPS better than phone?
For nearly every purpose, people will find an iPhone or Android performs better than a Garmin or other outdoor GPS unit. Proponents of smartphones point out that they offer better maps, larger screens, better software, for a fraction of the cost of a standalone GPS unit.
Is a GPS better than Google Maps?
GPS devices provide traffic warnings, and a lot of them also now connect to a phone via Bluetooth for “live traffic,” but they don’t measure up to Google or Waze in that regard. The better GPS units have better onscreen directions, especially at tricky interchanges, and they have more precise voice directions.
Is Waze better than TomTom?
TomTom’s GO is the only paid-for navigation app that we would recommend, because it offers a simple layout and has a very useful speed-camera tool that makes up for the lack of search functions. Waze comes in third thanks to its traffic accuracy, although it needs to stop re-routing at the slightest sign of a hold-up.
Is TomTom going out of business?
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – TomTom will remain independent and grow its core digital maps business, its CEO said on Tuesday after the company agreed to sell its fleet management business to Japan’s Bridgestone for 910 million euros ($1 billion).

Which is more accurate strava or Garmin?
As usual, the numbers for distance are different. The Garmin consistently gives marginally shorter distances, and we are starting and finishing within 1 to 2 meters of each other. The Garmin GPS gave me a distance that was more than 500meters less than the Strava.
Is TomTom better than Google Maps?
Google Maps and TomTom Go are two of the popular navigation apps. Google Maps is an all-rounder, and TomTom Go offers great features for driving.
Which is better Garmin or Rand McNally?
The Rand McNally is easier to punch in a new location for. Garmin always assumes you’re searching in the state you’re in so you have to put the state you’re actually looking for in. The Rand McNally just gives you a list of Buffalos to choose whether you meant New York or Wyoming.
