Black Friday 2010 GPS Deal Predictions

Sep 22 2010, 6:32am CDT | by , in Shopping | Black Friday

The TomTom 125-SE was the hot Walmart Black Friday 2009 GPS Doorbuster Deal at $59.

Black Friday 2010 GPS Deal Predictions
 
Buy TomTom XXL 540TM from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Black Friday 2009 was about offering a GPS device at the lowest price possible. Walmart for instance advertised a special low-end version of a TomTom GPS as Black Friday doorbuster deal for $59. The TomTom ONE 125-SE had a 3.5-inch screen and only the US map installed. I do not expect that low-end GPS devices will be a focus of Black Friday 2010. The GPS deals you should look for and expect are in more advanced models.

A sweet GPS deal that is available today is the TomTom XXL 540TM with lifetime Traffic and Maps Update selling for $179.99 on Amazon. If you need a GPS for your daily commute you want Traffic updates. What you do not want is to pay a monthly fee for this service. I recommend to look only for GPS devices with Lifetime service offers this Black Friday.  To get free map updates are also nice value as it protects your GPS from getting outdated for free. The TomTom XXL 540TM features a 5-inch screen, Maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, 7 million Points of Interest, IQ Routes (fast route calculation), Lane Guidance and more.

You should take the TomTom XXL 540TM features and price as reference point when shopping for a GPS device in the coming Black Friday 2010 sales season.

In the lower price segment TomTom's competitor Garmin has with the Garmin nuvi 255W the current bestselling GPS on Amazon. The Garmin nuvi 255W features a 4.3-inch screen, turn-by-turn voice commands, fast satellite lock with Hotfix, compatible with optional MSM Direct and anti-theft feature. Amazon sells the 255W for $121.16. This GPS is really only interesting if you do not need Traffic updates, else I would spend the extra $50 to get the TomTom XXL 540TM.

In case you want to get the cheapest GPS possible this Black Friday, the Magellan RoadMate 1340 sets the bar already very low today. This GPS is currently on sale on Amazon for only $56.88, beating the Walmart Black Friday doorbuster deal from last year.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
