Location Module of the Year

"Honey, where are we?" That is a question that is seldom asked with today's global positioning technology. Now you can never be lost again, whether on the road or on foot, when you have a GPS Springboard module in your Visor.

GPS CompanionWinner: GPS Companion by Magellan

The GPS Companion has the benefit of being made by Magellan, a name synonymous with GPS technology. With high quality maps and NMEA compatibility that allows users to have a choice of mapping software, the GPS Companion is a solid Springboard module that does not dissapoint

Hromadka: Although it is not the prettiest module, the GPS Companion makes up for it with accuracy and a clean interface. The Map Companion software has good search capabilities and has a very attractive price.

Honorable Mention: HandyGPS Pro by Nexian

Nexian went back to the drawing board after the release of the dissapointing HandyGPS module and has addressed concerns with battery life and acquisition. The HandyGPS Pro also supports NMEA and comes with either UbiGo or StreetFinder mapping software.
