Although smartphones are loaded with navigation apps like Google Maps, Waze or Apple Maps, they're best for when you're traveling short distances. If you're going on a road trip, using a dedicated GPS device for your car is still the best way to get to your destination safely and hassle-free. And we stumbled upon a gem of a one-day sale.

Today only, you can score the Garmin Drive 52 Car GPS for $90, or $40 off at Best Buy and Amazon. That's a 31 percent savings and the lowest price you'll find on the web right now. It's cheaper at Best Buy and Amazon than at Garmin itself.

Never get lost

Equipped with a bright five-inch display, the Garmin Drive 52 Car GPS can keep you on the right track — thanks to advanced turn-by-turn directions and readable maps. Remember: It's about the journey, not the destination, and Garmin offers places to check out along the way, with listings of notable historic sites, national parks, nearby restaurants, shopping malls, rest areas and other off-the-beaten-path locations — all certified with TripAdvisor traveler ratings.

Just plug the gizmo into your car's cigarette lighter, mount it on your windshield or dashboard, type in your destination and you're ready to go. Some shoppers even say it helps save money on their phone bills.

"This GPS is a lifesaver — especially when traveling in areas with poor cellphone reception," raved a five-star reviewer. "There are a lot of awesome features like historic information, trip advisor info, speed and red light camera alerts. I'm doing my best to like cellphone reliance and this GPS afforded me the ability to reduce my phone plan and save money every month like using Wi-Fi at home and GPS for maps."

Voice assistance

Meanwhile, the Garmin Drive 52 Car GPS lets you keep your eyes on the road with voice guidance for directions, street names and highway exits— no distractions. Plus, if you make a wrong turn, the GPS will automatically re-route to effortlessly get you back on track.

"This GPS is easy to read and set up. The voice for directions is clear and gives you enough time to get in the right lane," shared a satisfied Best Buy shopper.

At $90 (was $130), the Garmin Drive 52 Car GPS is a great addition to your car, especially if you want more than what smartphones and Google Maps can offer. 

"We got this GPS because we have to travel a lot. So far it's worked perfectly," added a five-star reviewer. "Love the way it tells what the upcoming exit is, because we were using Google Maps on our phones and it didn't tell you the exit number until you were right on top of it. I also love the way it shows all the lanes on the highway. I would highly recommend this GPS! Great value!"
