Garmin Nuvi GPS
So dad is a good driver, but he can't find his way out of a paper bag eh? In his (and my) defense today's roadways are ever changing and it can be rather confusing, especially when he's out of his natural habitat, but if there's one thing that can transform a good driver into a great local guide, it is an excellent navigator, and that's where the Garmin GPS nuvi series comes in. Give dad a GPS and not just any GPS gift him a Garmin GPS nuvi and he'll never need to pull over and ask directions again and mom will be much happier too, because getting off track can be stressful. Plus he'll have a wealth of information at his fingertips so he's always coming up with fun things to do. Garmin has been hard at work finding ways to combine where you are, with what to do, and the results are nothing short of amazing. I'll be honest have tried Tom Tom and Magellan GPS units for the car, and generally speaking I prefer Garmin because they have more features that I like, and a menu that I think is much easier to use.

There are several Garmin GPS nuvi units to select from and they all work excellent for navigating the USA. From the affordable Garmin nuvi 205 to the new Garmin nuvi 1690 which includes free access to Garmin's nüLink, featuring services garmin gps like up-to-date weather forecasts, flight status, white pages, and more sent to the Garmin GPS nuvi 1690 in real-time. With nüLink equipped Garmin, he'll get Google™ Local Search to find local points of interest and targeted traffic alerts for delays and road construction delivered to the unit, then to be automatically guided around traffic tie-ups. Need fuel? Find current fuel prices near your location. Plus there's Ciao!™ with weather, movie times, local events, flight status, currency converter, White Pages and more...
