While having a drive, it couldn't be always possible to keep visually checking the navigators after entering an address or to get directions to reach a specific destination. GPS devices with the speaker facility and the options to guide wirelessly come to the rescue. The spoken turn-by-turn directions relieves the usage hassle of reading street names.

The below listed GPS devices verbally guide to be hands-free so that the user can keep the eyes on the road. Some of these devices also accept spoken command to activate any task.

The best GPS devices with speakers for voice prompts guide through the navigation by notifying the user about the places, turns, distances and many other things including gas stations, restaurants, hospitals, or any other location/landmark from the POI (point of interest) menu. Sometimes, these devices make use of natural landmarks for turn-by-turn directions instead of unfamiliar distances.

Earlier the voice navigation feature was mostly available on a few high-end units, but now, many of them offer the convenience. Since the voice support can be optional on some devices, it is necessary to go through the spec list for verification before the purchase.

The best GPS with speaker voice prompts have a speaker for the voice output. Most of the below listed navigators come from the brands such as Garmin and Magellan under the Nuvi and Roadmate product lines under the $250 price range.

    If you already own one of Garmin's higher-end nuvi models purchased within the last 2 years, the 3590 LMT probably isn't compelling enough to warrant upgrading. If you don't already have a GPS, or are looking to upgrade an older/lower-end model, the 3590 LMT is a solid navigator packed with virtually every feature available on a Garmin GPS: 5-inch screen, traffic, free map updates, multi-touch gesture support, voice command, Bluetooth and much more.


  • It's getting tougher to make the case for high-end GPS devices, but the fully loaded Garmin 3590LMT easily succeeds. It's a worthy purchase if you have the cash.


  • The Garmin nuvi 3590 LMT is a high-quality, feature-rich sat-nav. As we've commented before with regard to the Garmin smartphone app and the nuLink 2320, the Live services do get a bit pricey. If you purchased all of them, you would be paying £62.24 a year, which is significantly more than TomTom currently charges for its LIVE services. However, the device does come with lifetime map updates and lifetime RDS-TMC traffic, so you can get traffic information without the enhanced 3D Traffic service.

    Highly recommended. The only trouble I had testing the Essential series was that it wouldn't connect to the computer once. But after I used it in the car, I was able to bring it in and connect it with no problem. This is a basic navigator but it has all the features most people will need. An improved mounting system and faster processor mark the most significant updates since the nuvi 50LM.

    The 2497LMT is a worthy successor to last yearâ??s 2495LMT. The most notable improvements are active lane guidance, the up ahead feature and traffic announcements. Do those features make it worth upgrading? In my mind, yes.


  • The TomTom VIA 1605TM is a top-notch budget GPS device, thanks to its sharp 6-inch screen, solid feature set, and fair price.


  • With its improved interface, the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT (Advanced Series) is as easy to use as earlier models, while offering a good blend of advanced features at a reasonable price.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Even with my love of powered mounts (missing here), the nuvi Advanced series rocks. New (and very useful) customization options, exit services and choices of routes will tempt many nuvi owners to upgrade. It looks like Garmin has another winner.


  • The only model in Garmin's nuvi lineup that offers road map coverage for Europe is the nuvi 2475LT. The feature list is extremely similar to the nuvi 2455LMT, but leaves out the lifetime map updates. , but covers North America only. Otherwise, the nuvi 2475LT adds a Bluetooth receiver with Smartphone Link, which allows your Android smartphone to become an interface extension of the GPS unit.
