Why would anyone buy a stand alone GPS nowadays instead of using an Android phone with real time traffic and real time nsa sponsored map updates?
Because some of us don't have or even want an Android phone, lol. I've been using TracFone exclusively for years & it's all I really need. I just use it for texting & an occasional call now & then & it's all I need a cell for really.
I don't do a lot of traveling & don't really need this but I got one anyway. Seems like a good starter GPS at the right price to check one out. My car supposedly came with GPS but it turned out to be a compass & temp gauge instead. Perhaps I'm trying to compensate for that particular lie the dealership told me, lol.
