Cobra NAV ONE 2500
When vacationing, most travelers are encouraged to visit new destinations. At the same time, these same people are often looking for familiar services such as a favorite coffee bar or a store to buy replacement clothes. The NAV ONE 2500 from Cobra stands out among the many other basic GPS units by appealing to the need for recognizable locations. Its My Favorite Brands option lets drivers program the GPS system to indicate when restaurants or stores from as many as 600 American brands come with range. Cobra has similarly managed to include a number of GPS features that are sometimes missing from receivers in this class, such as automatic traffic re-routing and a speed warning to keep drivers within local limits. The official price for the 2500 is a reasonable $499, and Cobra is shipping them today.
