GPS and Rental Cars
Many rental car agencies are upgrading to the latest GPS technology. Budget Travel rated several and this is what they found.
Enterprise rents the Garmin nuvi 265W for $10 a day.
Hertz uses their own brand for $13 a day. This one is fixed below the dashboard so be careful when parking as it cannot be removed and placed out of sight.
Avis/Budget has the Garmin nuvi 780 for $14 a day. Budget Travel really likes this one as it is a newer model and will even give you real time traffic updates.
Dollar/Thrifty rents the Garmin nA1/4vi 660 for $12 a day.
Alamo/National has the Garmin StreetPilot c330 for $12 a day.
Each have pros and cons so do some checking if having a GPS is the reason you are renting from a particular company. Happy navigating.
