Maps. Most GPS units come either with pre-loaded maps, or come with maps on CD-ROMs that must be transferred to the GPS unit via a computer. Maps are either stored on compact flash cards or on internal or sometimes removable hard drives. Map updates occur every one to three years depending on manufacturer.
Built-in road maps or street level mapping. Street level mapping is an essential component of an in-vehicle GPS unit. This is a useful feature when visiting new cities, unfamiliar areas, or when looking for a detour route to avoid poor traffic conditions. Some models have all street level maps built-in, others require the user download the maps from a personal computer or laptop via compact flash card or direct USB interface.
