Some people will tell you that standalone GPS devices have gone the way of the dinosaur thanks to the rise of fully capable smartphones, but I disagree. Many of those apps still require you to have an active data connection and you either want to conserve that data bucket or you may not have a connection while on the open road. And when you can get a quality GPS for half price, you can’t really turn down that navigational opportunity.

Take the Garmin nuvi 1390LMT as a prime example. The regular list price for this GPS navigator is $229.99, but Amazon has slashed that price in half down to $114.99. This is mostly because there is a newer model out, but this version is still very solid. You don’t have to worry about getting outdated maps either, because this comes with free lifetime maps and traffic. This way, you always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs and navigation information.

As far as the core specs go, there’s a 4.3-inch TFT color touchscreen, preloaded City Navigator NT North America, and integrated Bluetooth with a mic and speaker for hands-free calling. The “advanced navigation features” shouldn’t be ignored either. The standard voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions are nice, but you get voiced street names, lane assist with junction view (I can’t stress enough how useful this is), and something called “ecoRoute” to help you save fuel.

I have one of these myself and it works like a dream. I paid more than this sale price for sure, so be sure to snatch up the Garmin nuvi 1390LMT for $114.99 on Amazon while you can. And yes, that includes free shipping.
