Nav­man, $399, nav­

★★★ THIS Garmin GPS is all about leisure. It’s about the same size as the TomTom G0 1050, with less bulk. At first glance the on/off switch, main menu but­ton and lo­ca­tion finder look cheap, but that gives way to a ‘‘hey, that’s quite handy’’ re­sponse. The Nav­man is one of the most fea­ture-rich GPS units on the mar­ket. Its main screen has fea­ture tiles from stan­dard nav­i­ga­tion to a fully in­te­grated Lonely Planet guide show­ing places of in­ter­est, restau­rants and places to stay. It even has Hema off-road maps for more ad­ven­tur­ous driv­ers. The ac­tual maps are lighter on in­for­ma­tion com­pared with TomTom but it will get you where you are go­ing with no prob­lems. Users should check their phone is com­pat­i­ble with this unit’s GPS fea­ture.
