1.Garmin DriveSmart 55 and Traffic, GPS Navigator with 5.5” Display

The Garmin DriveSmart 55 is one of the finest GPS navigation systems designed for your car. The variety of features makes it useful for everyday driving as well as road trips. This GPS navigation system is preloaded with maps for North America. Every purchase of the unit includes lifetime updates of its maps for free. All you need to do is connect the device via WiFi.

 

The touchscreen extends to the end of the frame. It is easy to read the on-screen maps while driving and the Garmin DriveSmart 55’s clear directions will help you reach your destination without hassle and on-time. The GPS unit supports multiple languages for Spanish-speaking drivers.

 

It is also possible to customize your route based on the height, length, or weight restrictions of the roads you will be traveling. Ordinary drivers will not have a use for this feature, but drivers who haul big loads or trailers frequently will find it extremely resourceful.

2.Garmin DriveSmart 65, Built-In Voice-Controlled GPS Navigator

The DriveSmart 65 comes with detailed maps of North America. The GPS unit features WiFi capability for easy updates without needing to use a computer. The Bluetooth wireless connection allows pairing with smartphones for additional features using the free Garmin Drive app. These advanced map and direction features include live parking info and access to live traffic cameras along your route.

 

The 6.95” display is large, but the frame is so thin that the Garmin DriveSmart 65 does not take up more space than most smaller models. The screen is bright and easy to see and the touchscreen is responsive and accurate.

 

The Garmin DriveSmart 65 not only provides lots of alerts designed to help you avoid traffic, but there are also several driver alerts that help drivers be more aware of their surroundings. Drivers using this GPS system will be notified of upcoming road situations including sharp curves, railroad crossing, and changes to the speed limit.

3.Garmin 010-02064-00 Instinct, Rugged Outdoor Watch

The Garmin Instinct is for the hardcore of whatever activity you’re into. This rugged GPS watch — which aligns with U.S. Military standard 810G for thermal, shock, and water resistance up to 100 meters is built for tough environments. It features a three-axis compass, a barometric altimeter, and multiple global navigation satellite systems like GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo to track your challenging path.

 

You can also use this watch to monitor estimated heart rate, activity, and stress, and train with preloaded activity profiles. When paired with a compatible smartphone, you can connect with notifications and automatic data uploads to the Garmin Connect fitness community. A TracBack feature helps you navigate your route so you don’t get lost on the trail. The Garmin Explore website and app help you plan your activities in advance. The Instinct‘s battery lasts up to 14 days in smartwatch mode and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode.

4.Garmin 010-01769-01 Vivoactive 3, GPS Smartwatch

You know the score. You’re out running, making great progress, tracking your heart rate, all looking good then realize you forget your water bottle! Not to worry. With the Garmin Vivoactive 3 featuring contactless payment, you’ve now got it covered! From playing to paying, the Vivoactive really will support your own active life. It’s already loaded with 15 different sports apps too and with its built-in GPS and wrist-based heart rate, you can monitor distance, pace, location as well as VO2 max levels.

5.Garmin Striker 4 with Transducer, 3.5" GPS Fishfinder

It is one of the most popular fishfinder equipment, small in design at affordable prices. This device comes with a small screen but excellent pixel resolution. It has also included a backlight facility that works in a bright area. It provides a higher level of visibility with great clarity. The Garmin Striker 4 contains a chirp dual sonar frequency, which can work in the depth of water up to 1660 ft. It sends continuous frequencies ranging from low to high.

 

With this, you can see what is in the water and around your boat. It works with high-frequency sonar, which provides you with clear images of objects within a second. This device comes with a 3.5-inch screen and a good display. It also uses a waypoint map, which helps you easily reach into the depth of water and view and navigate the locations.

6.Garmin Striker Plus 5cv with Transducer, 5" GPS Fishfinder

Garmin released the Striker Plus series with a goal of innovating the older Striker series. The Striker Plus 5cv has virtually the same functionalities and features, but boasts an uncomplicated user interface, making catching fish fuss-free.

 

This model has features equipped to make the most out of its built-in GPS, such as the QuickDraw Contour and Wi-Fi, which make the device rather appealing to users who’ve never used GPS fish finders before.

 

Boasting improved sonar and the capability to customize contour maps, the Striker Plus 5cv is ideal for both entry-level and veteran anglers alike, who are looking for a simple device yet does what it’s intended for exceptionally.

7.Garmin 010-02028-00 Approach S10, Lightweight GPS Golf Watch

S10. Because of its square display, it looks very similar to Garmin Approach S20.  Its design is a lot simpler, although it’s fashioned after the Apple Watch.

 

It comes with a 1.3″ sunlight-readable screen. However, at the onset, you must know that it is not a touchscreen. Rather, to navigate it, you will have to use the four buttons located at the sides of the watch face.

 

Regardless, the Approach S10 is also equipped with features that you’ll appreciate during your golf game – pre-loaded courses, yardages, and score tracker. You can even upload your scorecards to Garmin Express and participate compete with the top players on the leaderboards of the Garmin Golf app.

 

When in GPS mode, the rechargeable battery can last for 12 hours. Also, the watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters deep (rated 5 ATM).

8.Garmin Approach S40, Stylish GPS Golf Smartwatch

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of GPS golf watches, Garmin has got the art down to a tee. Its latest wearable, launched this year, is crammed with features to help you master your swing, which is why it’s our top pick for the best golf GPS. A combination of cutting-edge GPS technology and a sunlight-readable 1.2-inch colour touchscreen enables you to calculate distances to the front, middle and back of the green, as well as any hazards.

 

AutoShot game tracking records your every pitch and putt, so that you can learn from your mistakes post-match. And data from 41,000 global courses gives you the opportunity to compare your score with others who’ve played there. Add in Bluetooth, notifications from your smartphone, and accurate sleep and fitness tracking, and the Approach S40 is a true all-rounder when it comes to golf GPS watches.

9. Garmin Dash Cam 56, Wide 140-Degree Field of View In 1440P HD

The compact, discreet GPS-enabled Garmin Dash Cam 56 provides a wide 140° field of view. It clearly captures important details in high-quality 1440 HD video—in all light conditions—if an incident occurs. It also provides advanced driver alerts (certain conditions may impair the warning function), including forward collision, lane departure and a “Go” alert to enhance driver awareness.

 

Get alerts for red light camera and speed camera location alerts (not available in all areas) with unlimited updates via the Garmin Drive app. Say “OK, Garmin” to start/stop audio recording, take a still picture or start/stop the Travelapse time lapse video capture feature. Automatic multi-video sync allows you to play back picture-in-picture video captured from up to 4 dash cams in use at the same time, so you can see multiple points of view with the Garmin Drive app if an incident happens.

10. Garmin Dash Cam Tandem, Front and Rear Dual-lens Dash Camera

What we love most about this Garmin is that it’s stupid-simple to set up and use. We paired our phone via the app (ideally you also purchase a phone mount for your dash so you don’t have to look down to see the video) and immediately saw footage on our phone screen. And there’s no pressing of buttons necessary. Instead we used super easy voice commands—“Okay, Garmin,” and then a prompt like “Save Video” to preserve footage, for instance. The “Tandem” name doesn’t mean that this unit includes a backup camera; it has a forward-facing one, as well as one that monitors the cabin. And it has night vision for the interior of the car, so you can see if your kids are flicking fries at each other on the way home from the drive-through. The tiny candy bar-size Tandem is unobtrusive and also has both GPS and g-force sensing. To test the latter, we slammed on the brakes (simulating a panic stop), and it captured the footage. Plus it stamps that video with a time and location. It also has a parked-car sentry mode. On the downside, a suction mount would be preferable to the adhesive-and-magnet system used here, for easier transfer between vehicles. And the lack of a built-in screen requires you to pair your phone to see what the cameras are capturing.
