Hot deal: Magellan RoadMate 3000T for $160
This high-ranking GPS device is offered refurbished at less than a third of its original price.
We don't often list a refurbished gadget as a "Hot deal," but this one's an exception, since the price is so remarkably low.
When CNET News.com reporter Daniel Terdiman went on his 2006 Road Trip, the Magellan RoadMate 3000T is the Global Positioning System, or GPS, device he brought along.
Terdiman is not alone in feeling that the RoadMate 3000T is accurate and, with good resolution and responsive controls, easy to use. While it's not the sleekest or smallest GPS tool, being designed primarily for in-car use, its features set it apart from the rest of its kind. Its screen, for example, is easy to see even in sunlight, and the unit becomes a versatile entertainment device if you load it with an SD card containing music and photos.
