GPS saving fuel dollars and driver stress

Dec 2, 2009

According to a research study from NAVTEQ, drivers can save as much as $200 a year by using GPS systems.

The study found that when drivers used navigation systems to get around they consumed 12% less fuel than those who drove without it. Over a year’s time, the average driver could drive 1,500 fewer miles using a GPS device. Navigation users who use devices with voice-activated turn-by turn systems also report less stress while driving.
