Nextar 43LT


Live traffic updates used to be exclusive to premium GPS devices; today, it's one of many features starting to migrate to lower-priced models. Last year, Garmin introduced devices like the Editors' Choicewinning nüvi 265T with a built-in traffic...

Good value. Upgradeable maps and POI database. Easy to use. Free lifetime traffic

Small initial POI database. No turn-by-turn list view. Can't save current location. Maps for U.S. only. Traffic receiver not built-in

The Nextar 43LT is a worthy competitor to the Editors' Choice Garmin nuvi 265T, but its lack of a Bluetooth interface and a couple other features hold it back.

Good responsive GPS with built in traffic + extras


Nice basic GPS with points of interest using navteq system. Also has a good flexible interface that allows different routing options. Has points of interest as well as nearest medical care. Has built in free traffic. Finding an address is more...

Quick responsive address look up. Points of interest, closest medical. Night-time mode improves visibilty. Built in free traffic is great. Extras like games, MP3 player, photo viewer are a pleasant surprise (and can entertain kids at arrival)

You have to reinitialize the device from time to time for it to recognize the FM antenna used for traffic. Otherwise, perfect
