The new fleet of GPS devices is all souped up.
By Amanda C. Kooser

As GPS devices get more affordable, manufacturers are packing in new features to distinguish their offerings. One of the most useful innovations is voice command. Garmin, Magellan and TomTom all offer units with at least some voice command capabil-ities. The Garmin Nüvi 850 and 880 can even accept addresses by voice. When it comes to finding and building routes, the free Hewlett-Packard iPAQ Navigate site puts the internet to work. Users can create trip plans and research points of interest. These plans can then be moved onto an iPAQ 300 series GPS or shared with other users, which could be a convenient way to handle trip planning for multiple employees.
