Garmin Nuvi 50 GPS receiver

CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very good)

The good: The Garmin Nuvi 50 features a large screen and an easy-to-understand interface. Text-to-speech-spoken street names and colorful maps also make it easy to use.

The bad: Text and graphics appear pixelated upon closer inspection. The dashboard mounting disc and USB sync cable are not included in the box.

The cost: $117.99 to $139.99

The bottom line: Garmin's formula for entry-level GPS devices doesn't change much with the new Nuvi 50, but small tweaks, a lower price, and a massive screen enhance value.
