GPS Devices are the sextants of the modern age, allowing us to pinpoint our locations with accuracy and navigate without fear of getting lost.

This week we want to hear about what device you use to chart your travels. Whether you use the GPS chip in your cellphone or a dedicated GPS device, tell us about it in the comments below. Bonus points for sharing your reason—Easy to read screen? Portability? Soothing audio directions?—for selecting it as your primary GPS tool.
Hive Five  nominations take place in the comments, where you post your favorite tool for the job. We get hundreds of comments, so to make your nomination clear, please include it at the top of your comment like so: VOTE: GPS Device. Please don’t include your vote in a reply to another commenter. Instead, make your vote and reply separate comments. If you don’t follow this format, we may not count your vote. To prevent tampering with the results, votes from first-time commenters may not be counted. After you’ve made your nomination, let us know what makes it stand out from the competition.
About the Hive Five: The Hive Five feature series asks readers to answer the most frequently asked question we get: “Which tool is the best?” Once a week we’ll put out a call for contenders looking for the best solution to a certain problem, then YOU tell us your favorite tools to get the job done. Every weekend, we’ll report back with the top five recommendations and give you a chance to vote on which is best. For an example, check out last week’s Hive Five Best Content Filtering Tools .
