Weather Another feature that is becoming increasingly available is weather for a location. The system will tell you weather at a certain location on map i.e. at that beach location you are planning to visit.
When you want to plan a journey you will need to enter start and end destination, this can be done in a number of ways, city, street and house number. The street intersections, post codes and a location chosen on on screen map. The start can be done in same way with addition of present location as starting point (remember unit knows where you are). There are then itinerary or way points, these allow you to program destinations along way. Finally you are usually presented with choices of routes with choices like, Fastest Route, Shortest Route, Scenic Route, Avoid Motorways etc some have choice to avoid toll charges.
Fitting The units can be fitted into car in a number of ways but 2 most popular ways are with a mounting bracket that has a strong suction cup that sticks to windscreen. The second way is a bracket that fixed to cars air vents, this method can be very good but required a fixing for each type of car. The unit is then fitted to brackets and adjusted to best viewing angle.
There are dozens of systems available now with a variety of choices of options available. You need to choose which of above options are important to you and then choose until that best suits you or suits you price range.
You can see a large variety of different units at different costs at my favourite comparason site www.wangled.co.uk just type in "Mobile GPS"
