Garmin nvi 42LM 4.3-Inch Portable Vehicle GPS
Garmin dropped its 3.5" models for its 2013 lineup, adding 7" models and letting the 4.3" ones fill out the budget line. The nuvi 42 is one of the cheapest new GPS navigators available from Garmin, but this doesn't mean that it lacks in terms of competence. This navigator is very similar to the nuvi 42LM, minus the lifetime map updates. Otherwise, you get an improved mounting system and slight changes to the user interface, making it a cleaner design that is easier to use. You also get basic features, such as speed limit display, junction view, and lane assist. While it may be worth spending a little more to get the 42LM - even if just for its free lifetime map updates - if you just want a basic and very affordable new GPS navigator that comes standard with the quality and reliability offered by Garmin, the nuvi 42 is a good choice.
