  • Why you should be excited about iOS 6

    Posted June 16, 2012 - 7:41 am

    In case you missed it, Apple had a little media event yesterday. Of course, I kid. Yesterday was the keynote presentation at Apple's WWDC (Worldwide Developer Conference) and it has dominated tech news for the last week.--including the obligatory unveiling of all things magical, like iOS 6.

    Review: Today's best GPS devices

    Posted January 26, 2011 - 12:17 pm

    If you're looking to buy a dedicated GPS navigation device, you'll quickly discover that every manufacturer offers an almost dizzying array of products--each with slightly different features. The challenge, then, is to determine which features are must-haves and which would just be nice to have.

    Review: Garmin Nuvi 1350T

    Posted January 24, 2011 - 2:11 pm

    One of the challenges of buying a GPS navigation device is to figure out just which set of features you want. The other lies in deciphering the differences among models in a product line--in this case, the difference between the Nuvi 1350T ($180 list, as of January 21, 2011) and the Nuvi 1370T. One need look no further than the list prices of these two models to know there’s a difference: The similarly featured 1370T is priced at $250 (as of January 21, 2011).

    Review: Garmin Nuvi 265WT

    Posted January 24, 2011 - 2:10 pm

    If you're shopping for a bargain-priced GPS, searching for the previous year's models is often a good place to start. One of the current best finds is the Garmin Nuvi 265WT. While it still carries a hefty list price of $220 on the Garmin Website (as of 1/21/2011), you can generally find it online for $100 less.

    Review: Garmin Nuvi 1260T

    Posted January 24, 2011 - 2:09 pm

    Each of the GPS manufacturers offers an almost dizzying array of products--each with just slightly different features. The key challenge in buying a GPS navigation device is to determine which features are must-haves and which ones would just be nice to have. Once you make that determination, buying the perfect GPS becomes simpler. Over the past several years, larger screens have been the trend for dashboard GPS devices. Devices with a 4.3-inch screen have almost completely replaced devices with 3.5-inch screens. Still, some people might prefer a smaller screen device. And, often, but not always, the smaller screens could mean a cheaper price. Such is the case with the Garmin Nuvi 1260T.

  • GPS Data Can Steer You Into a Ditch

    Posted April 1, 2010 - 9:14 am

    Two events, one at a new site, one at a site that's been around for decades. Lots of people were going to either for the first time. Many used GPS units. Few got there, as a result-- without external help! Standards are essentially non-existent and GPS makers don't force users to update the devices. GPS becomes so vastly less useful without these simple things.
  • Garmin nuvifone to be released on Oct. 4

    Posted September 29, 2009 - 5:25 pm

    When first we heard of Garmin's nüvifone (if it's got an umlaut, it has to be good, right?), it was in the cold winter days of February 2008 and the device was supposed to ship in the third quarter of that year. Fast forward to Tuesday, when Garmin announced the device would finally arrive in the U.S. on October 4 as an AT&T exclusive. Oh well, close enough for government work.

Now, Garmin counters with its $500 Nuvi 1690.
