REVIEW

The Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT is a strong performing navigator with loads of smart features that help reduce driver errors and distraction, but in a world filled to the brim with smartphone nav apps, most will never know its charms.

REVIEW

Pioneer AVIC 5000NEX Navigation System

Pioneer's flagship AVIC 8000NEX boasts dozens of media and navigation options -- including the first aftermarket appearance of Apple CarPlay -- but most users will find a better feature-to-cost balance lower in the brand's NEX lineup.

The Magellan SmartGPS bridges a gap between connected navigation apps and car-friendly GPS hardware with its ability to sync with the cloud and connect to the Web via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but its busy interface could use fewer moving parts.

REVIEW

LBT PocketFinder personal GPS locator

The PocketFinder is the simplest to use of the personal GPS locators that we've tested, requiring no interaction from the user on a day-to-day basis, but you'll pay a bit more in the long run for that.
