If CNET offered an award for "Most Improved Manufacturer," I'd be casting my vote for RightWay GPS. When we last saw this manufacturer of portable navigation devices, its Spotter Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Edition was distracting us with Nascar gimmickry, and underwhelming us with its limited functionality. However, the new RightWay 550 is actually a pretty good GPS navigator.

However, despite there being much that we like about the 550--such as the snappy performance of its SirfStar IV GPS receiver, its powerful CoPilot Live 8 navigation software, and the high level of customization offered--there is still quite a bit of room for RightWay GPS to improve before it can hope to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Garmin, TomTom, and Magellan.
