★★ THE Ko­gan GPS is big and loud. Its 6-inch screen is the largest in the group. As soon as the de­vice starts it makes all kinds of jin­gles and sounds that had me leap­ing for the vol­ume con­trol. Ko­gan’s nav­i­ga­tor runs on Win­dows CE, which is a lit­tle con­cern­ing as sup­port might dry up soon. That said, CE of­fers much more than just map nav­i­ga­tion. The Ko­gan unit comes with games and other fea­tures which might ap­peal to some but are not crit­i­cal for driv­ers. This unit is the worst of the bunch when it comes to glare, again giv­ing an­other black mark against it for more se­ri­ous driv­ers. Where the Ko­gan does win is in pric­ing — it’s vastly cheaper than all other GPS units, push­ing it into sen­si­ble sec­ondary unit ter­ri­tory.
