For $100 you would typically get the cheapest GPS units suitable for long car drives, some of which are powered with voice recognition. Garmin has fewer options within this pricing parameter so your best GPS device under $100 is the Mitac unit which is equipped with route planning abilities to facilitate travel.

  • All in all the nuvi 30 is actually a very nice PND to use, particularly for the price. If a 3.5 inch screen is a bit small for your liking then you can upgrade to the nuvi 40 which is exactly the same albeit with a 4.3 inch screen and an RRP of £89.99. The nuvi 50 will take it to a 5 inch screen at a reasonable £99.99. It's packed with useful features and no extra bloat, it's easy to use and it performs well. I'm happy to give this an outstanding 9/10 when taking the price range into consideration.


  • The TomTom XL 350 and XXL 550 series of GPS devices represent a marked improvement over the previous generation, keeping its great form factor while streamlining its software.


  • The TomTom XL 350 is a GPS receiver for people who frequently need to get where they are going in a hurry. It gives you advanced notice on the highway which lane you need to be in, and has fast route re-calculation when you go in a direction you aren't supposed to.


  • The XL 350-TM provides TomTom's usual impressive navigation features, with an industry standard 4.3-inch screen. Included lifetime traffic and lifetime map updates make this one of the most feature-packed GPS devices available for the price.
