Magellan Smart GPS you can have an affordable Connected Car #Giveaway #SmartGPS

Are you looking for a great GPS, that will help you get around? Do you think a GPS may be out of your price range? Well you are in luck, Magellan gives anyone the chance to have an affordable Connected Car the smartGPS will turn anyone's car into a Connected Car with smartphone integration for only $250!

Here is  a little more information about this handy GPS devise from the website:

Discover new places and find deals from Yelp and Foursquare reviews. Receive valuable information and reviews from real people, at your fingertips, pushed to your SmartGPS based on your location. Let the Yelp and Foursquare communities help you find your next favorite hot-spot. GPS is changed forever… The Magellan SmartGPS is so much more than a basic GPS navigator. The Magellan SmartGPS is the only GPS device that automatically receives valuable location-based information from Yelp and Foursquare, delivered directly to the device and the included SmartGPS companion App. 

The SmartGPS and the SmartGPS App make up 2 parts of a powerful and easy to use cloud Ecosystem, that allows you to wirelessly sync, save, and share contacts and destinations between your devices, like Smartphones, SmartGPS, tablets and computers. Simply enter once and now you can conveniently access your Address-book & favorite destinations from multiple devices.

My husband loves his car it actually teeters on obsessive. To me a car is a car and just as long as it gets us from point A to point B I really don't care about much else. When we got the car we learned it came with Ford Sync, Sync is Ford's way of connecting you to well something. We've been using Sync's direction service and we've learned that unless you enjoy getting lost it's useless. It doesn't understand when you talk to it, it constantly loses where you are and it gives really bad directions. So when the opportunity came along to get a real honest to goodness GPS I couldn't pass that up!
 We received a Magellan Smart GPS comparing the Magellan to the Sync isn't even a fair fight. What the Magellan provides you with is a laundry list of useful options that Sync just can't compete with. Hungry, well the GPS can help you find local restaurants, when we're you're out and about and want to find a place to eat the Smart GPS can find places to eat and can give you the reviews of the restaurant via Yelp and Foursquare,and it even tells you what discounts you can get if you check in, wow!
Need gas? The Magellan Smart GPS can find you gas stations and let you know where the cheapest place to fuel up is. New to an area and not sure where you can park? Smart GPS tells you where the best parking is. 
 Weather updates, red light camera warnings and live traffic to help you avoid getting caught in a log jam. This little wonder has been fun to play around with and we're discovering things like indoor flea markets in our area that we never knew existed. 


Magellan SmartGPS

And the Magellan Smart GPS is truly mobile. With the app you can be on Yelp or Foursquare and say you discover a new destination you want to visit, the app will send the destination to the Smart GPS and when you're in the car the information is automatically synced just hit go and you'll be on your way. For me this was so simple to set up and use, I loved the ease of the touch screen, just a light tap and I am able to choose directions to a restaurant  move the map or just explore the other great options of this GPS. 
 You can also sync your PC, smart phone and your Smart GPS to work together, contacts and favorites are shared making getting to your favorite places much easier.
