Since we all have smartphones with waze or google maps always on our side we might think that we don't need a Garmin GPS. But think of it this way, a standalone dedicated GPS device is always better than a smartphone mainly for connectivity. You don't always need a internet connection to make it work all the time and your smartphone as it always be needed. So this Garmin DriveSmart is a huge upgrade compared to older garmin GPS devices because of the large screen and the built-in WiFi connectivity for Amazon Alexa.
