Choosing the correct sat-nav device for your new Honda

By Essence Harold Subscribe to RSS | January 18th 2012 | Views:

Purchasing a GPS can be difficult as the marketplace is full of various models offering new features. More importantly, there are specific sat-navs that are better suited to specific cars.

Because of this, here are a few things that suggest you should keep in mind when buying a GPS for your Honda.

1) Currently there are three types of sat-nav available. They are called integrated based systems, plug and go systems and portable systems.

Integrated based systems: This sat-nav is installed straight into the car and interacts with the rest of your cars abilities. The main issue with this form of sat-nav is the expensive installation but on the upside the system integrates itself into your cars system.

Plug and go systems: These sat-nav systems are a lot more affordable than than the integrated sat-nav and are not restricted to one vehicle. The only disadvantage is that this system can be bulky and luring to thieves, as they can easily be taken from a car.

Portable systems: The most portable sat-nav with the lowest price tag due to the fact they are installed onto your mobile phone device. The main complaint about this form is that you may have to pay expensive phone charges and the map is only visible on a relatively small screen.

2) Next, think about the picture quality and size of the display. The system display should keep a high standard of quality in bright light and poorly lit conditions, the screen should always remain clearly visible. You want to avoid situations where you could end up lost because you can't see your sat-nav whilst you're driving. It should be visible at all times with a bright and non-reflective display.

3) Coverage of the GPS is important too. You need to be confident that you sat-nav won't cut out if you go up a country road or if you park under a tree. You don't want to get lost somewhere and see that your sat-nav has stopped working and has no information on how to get you back home. So make sure that you read up on reviews and details of several GPS models.

4) Ensure that it has both audio and visual description capabilities. Here are the two reasons why this is so important: Firstly, you have to concentrate on the road when you're driving so reading instructions isn't an option, therefore audio instructions are very useful. Secondly, text can be ideal as it will allow you to go over what was just said, if you didn't hear it the first time. This is where you want to check the manual of your Honda, as it may have specific features that are compatible with particular GPS models.

5) Are there any extra features offered? A lot of navigation systems can give you tips on common traffic congestion areas and the locations of speed cameras. These kinds of features can ensure you don't become stranded in traffic and will allow you to change your speed before reaching a speed camera. These features can also allow you to get the most when taking out a Mini leasingdeal whether you leased it from or another reputable leasing firm.

Follow these tips and then whether you've just bought a new car or just taken out a Honda leasing deal and you should be heading towards your destination in no time.

Essence Harold - About Author:
Mini leasing - My position requires that I remain organised at all times - I've designed a diverse mix of ways to store documents and keep items in a neat but accessible order. I keep up with company correspondence, handle all kinds of paper work and make sure the business runs as smoothly as it can. I think it's essential to ensure the base of any enterprise is healthy before other duties can be accomplished.
