With the rise of GPS apps on smartphones, most people have an idea that it is useless to buy a self-contained GPS unit. However, if you have a dedicated car GPS system, it does have its own share of benefits. For example, if you are not aware of the directions, it is quite frustrating to exit the app to make a call for directions. A GPS unit is also superior to some phone apps with regard to map quality and also when you are in an area that does not have 4G or Wi-Fi. Moreover, if you have a family, you can also share it with the members conveniently.
