The advent of smartphone navigation apps is awesome. What used to cost an arm and a leg became completely free thanks to Google Maps, and now plenty of companies have followed suit and launched free navigation apps of their own. Of course, all these nifty apps still have some drawback. You eat through your smartphone’s battery life, you eat through your mobile data plan, your music playback is constantly interrupted if you’re in the care, and so on.

Here’s another option: Check out the Garmin DriveSmart 60 NA LMT, which is on sale beginning right now through the end of the day on Saturday, August 6.

Some key details about this navigator, which just so happens to be one of our favorites:

  • DRIVER ALERTS – Receive alerts for upcoming sharp curves, speed changes, school zones, a fatigue warning, nearby red light and speed cameras and more
  • EASY TO USE – Dedicated GPS navigators display current street, current speed, speed limit and arrival time
  • GARMIN REAL DIRECTIONS – Guides like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights
  • SMARTPHONE NOTIFICATIONS – Customizable smart notifications let you display calls, texts and other app alerts on your navigation screen (select models)
