The benefits of using GPS devices are endless and when you have one for yourself you'll find new advantages to having one of these systems on a regular basis. Below I've described some of the common advantages that you'll probably find useful once you start using one.

You never have to deal with hard to fold, and hard to read, maps. This is especially an issue while driving. These devices are easy to use, and often the newer ones even have touch screens, making them even easier to handle. You put in where you want to go, how you want to get there, and it walks you through, turn by turn. Navigation doesn't get any easier than that.

If you miss a turn your GPS will reroute you automatically. This takes a lot of the stress out of driving an unfamiliar route. If traffic is backed up and you can't get in the left lane for your next turn you don't have to stress or make any dangerous decisions in the heat of the moment--you can afford to miss your turn because your navigation system will walk you through a new route.

When you need to find something that you don't have an address for, like a gas station, you can have your GPS find it for you. This is extremely helpful when you need to get gas, get to a hospital, or other common location.

You can choose the route that's best for you--fastest time, shortest route, avoid toll roads or highways. This way your system will walk you through how to get there, but if you want some control in how to get there you can still have that. You aren't losing anything by switching from old fashioned maps to your new navigation method.

It's hard to find any downsides to using one of these great units. The benefits of using GPS devices come into play every time you use them. It won't be long before you start to wonder how you ever got around without one.
