Magellan’s RoadMate 9055-LM global positioning system (GPS) is a luxury data center for your car’s dashboard. You can read text and maps at a quick glance on the 7-inch widescreen LCD, sync the device with your Bluetooth-compatible phone and talk hands-free, look up AAA-approved hotels, restaurants, and sites using the built-in AAA TourBook, and receive real-time traffic alerts that help you navigate around roadway congestion and accidents (no subscription necessary). Update maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico for the device’s lifetime.

The GPS is slim enough to fit into a briefcase or travel bag, but consider buying a travel pouch and clear, plastic screen protector (not included) before you hit the road. It sells for $279.99 at Best Buy (888-237-8289), or contact Magellan (800-707-9971).
