GPS systems to buy in Dubai

Four personal GPS options to make sure you’re never lost in Dubai

Dhs1,899
Garmin NuviCam LM

Despite having a built-in and accurate map, this is more than just a GPS. A dashcam records all journeys and automatically saves files in the case of a crash. Which is unlikely thanks to a nifty lane detection and collision warning system.
Free UAE shipping from Garmin’s website, www.garmin.ae (04 229 1195).

Dhs599
Mio Classic 300 LM

Several Dubai landmarks are recreated in 3D model format, making it easier than ever to see where you should be from the dashboard of your car.
Available at Emax, Mall of the Emirates, www.emaxme.com (800 3629).

Dhs595
Garmin Forerunner 10

You won’t find directions to unknown locations, but if you just need a GPS to track movement and record data about your travels – particularly jogging, hiking and cycling – this nifty watch is for you.
Available at Adventure HQ, Times Square Center, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.adventurehq.ae (04 346 6824).

Tom Tom for iPhone

It’s a hefty 130MB download, but think of all that online map data you’ll save with the world-famous satnav brand’s Middle East-wide app on your smartphone. Tom Tom also offers verbal directions in the voices of film and cartoon characters such as Yoda and Homer Simpson, which, when activated on Dubai maps, could be worth getting lost for.
Available at www.itunes.apple.com.
