C ollege is a great time for exploration, but that doesn't have to mean getting (or staying) lost. A reliable GPS device can help keep you on the right path, whether it's your first visit to a university as a high school student, or your final semester on campus. Many navigators can assist like your phone does - including working with apps and hands-free operation - but without the potential hassle of disappearing maps when cell service is lost or overwhelmed, like at sporting events. Other in-dash options simply display your phone's nav apps on their big, easy-to-view screens. Pocket-sized portability Thinking about higher education? Consider a portable GPS navigator like Garmin's nvi 2699LMTHD. It can deliver you to specific spots at select malls, airports, and universities, making it ideal for college tours. It's Bluetooth compatible for hands-free calling, and it even works with apps like Foursquare to help you find hip local hangouts, whether you're already enrolled or still weighing your options. If you're already on campus, the 6" nvi switches between vehicles easily for late-night supply runs and road trips, while voice-activated navigation promotes ease of use and lets your hands remain on the wheel. Free lifetime map updates keep you current, while rapid traffic reports inform you of potential delays in most areas.
