Exciting news over here at the 'mag - looks like GPSmagazine has been named on the Washington Post / PC World's prestigious "100 Blogs We Love" list. It's not every day we get included in the same list as Engadget, TechCrunch, & David Pogue's Posts -- We're honored!
The nuvi 200 series is Garmin's latest offering in the highly successful nuvi product line, and is targeted at the budget conscious consumer who is looking for basic navigation without all the bells and whistles of the higher end nuvi's.

TomTom's ONE XL is the wide-screen version of the TomTom ONE. Priced at around $400, the updated ONE XL sports a 4.3" wide display and adds support for TomTom's real-time traffic service.

With a suggested retail price of $499, the N100 offers turn-by-turn GPS navigation, an audio player, photo viewer, and video playback capabilities. I put the Pocket LOOX N100 through the our rigorous testing criteria and find out how this palm-sized GPS stacks up against the competition.
TeleNav today announced the official launch of version 5.2 of their cell-phone based GPS navigation product, TeleNav. Back in December '06 I reviewed version 5, which was already impressive. Since that review, TeleNav has added traffic, pedestrian mode, and more.
TomTom's newly announced GO 720 apparently lets drivers fix mapping errors as they encounter them, and then share the corrections with other drivers via TomTom's "Map Share Technology."
So, next time your drunk roommate "borrows" your car and decides you now live on a one-way street, you'll have no one to blame but yourself when your spanking new TomTom goes haywire next time routing to your home address.
