GARMIN NUVI 885T
This sleek and stylish vehicle navigator provides spoken directions, as well as responds to your spoken directions! Imagine that, a GPS that listens when you talk. Females will also favour the Nuvi 885T for the high quality bluetooth, so they can use their cell phones hands free. Plus the FM transmitter, which can be used to send both your tunes and directions, to the car stereo system.
GARMIN OREGON 550
Garmin is well known as the leader in GPS, for the simple fact that they listen to their users. Ladies are always looking for ways to reduce the clutter in their purses, so with the Oregon 550, they can leave their cameras at home. That's right, the GPS has an integrated 3.2 Megapixel camera, that allows you to geotag your pics. Geotagging is when a location and picture are saved as one file, which is then uploaded to the internet, and the picture is viewed on a map.
TOMTOM ONE 130
This is a very user-friendly option, for those travellers who are just interested in how to get to a specific location. The TomTom One 130 has an extremely compact design that fits neatly in a pocket or clutch.

This watch styled GPS provides common data like lap, time and distance, but also has a heart rate monitor included, so you can calculate your calories burnt. Another fantastic feature is the Virtual Partner, this shows how close to your desired pace you are. If the little person is running ahead of your icon on the display, you're going too slow and vice versa. All the data collected by the watch can be downloaded to the computer using the Training Center software, provided in the package.
