Accuracy is one of the important requirements and distinguishing features of the best vehicle navigation devices!
I could not help but smile at the above image received earlier today – and be appreciative of the accurate GPS devices on the market today!
Why is accuracy important?
I would like to quote from the Guide to buying a GPS device on the Arrive Alive road safety website:
“Accuracy: Most GPS devices can display your location with surprising accuracy. But streets and businesses change, so the accuracy of that information depends on how up-to-date it is. A less-reputable GPS vendor could cut the cost of its low-end products by providing outdated mapping data. Check whether the vendor provides regular map and POI updates, and how much they cost. Some GPS devices come with access to online communities where you can share mapping information, and download information that other users have provided.”
