For most of us, space can be an issue. If you are going on a long trip or if you just happen to be cursed with a small windshield, then getting your hands on the smallest possible GPS may be a wise idea. Provided that you have no issue with slightly smaller text and maps, then this is a great option. Today, we will take a look at some of the smallest GPS models available for you and your car.

One Final Option
There is one final option that you should consider. Your cell phone may have a GPS feature on it. On some models, this may be useful only as a last resort. If, however, you have a Smartphone with a decent sized screen, then this may be a good day to day choice. Just be ready to invest in a stand for the device. It may cost you a little bit, but, in the long run, it will be much less expensive then buying a GPS unit.
On the whole, getting a micro-sized GPS that fits your life does not have to be an expensive affair or even a time consuming one. Now you can get where you’re going without sacrificing too much space with these suggested solutions.
