GPS navigational devices are one of the fastest growing product categories at Consumer Reports, where we regularly test GPS. In our tests, we evaluate screen size, portability, ease of use, mounting systems, and other features. Not one of the GPS navigation systems we've tested is perfect. But a portable GPS system will usually guide you to your destination. The highest-rated GPS models make it especially easy to enter destinations and they give the most helpful directions.
