2. Hassle-free directions

A phone makes a handy GPS device, but it can be tricky to use while driving. A good, old-fashioned standalone is a great standby, sitting on a dashboard, always ready to help. The Garmin Nuvi 2250 brings a lot of features from Garmin's higher-priced models. A good deal. Expect to pay $150 or less at major department stores.
