GPS with rental car in Europe

Jump to last reply

I'm not sure how we managed all those years traveling in Europe with only maps, and then later with printed MapQuest directions, but we have become pretty dependent upon GPS at home, and really missed one our last trip driving in Italy. We missed a couple exits when they weren't marked as the directions said, and trying to follow the maps within towns was really hard. We got rather hopelessly lost trying to find a remote country hotel and I'm pretty sure that a GPS would have taken us right there.

So for our trip to France, what's the best deal? I haven't priced a GPS with an Auto Europe rental yet (I think it will probably end up being Hertz), but the last time we checked it was something like 14 euro a day which ends up meaning we could probably buy one for the same total cost. Am I missing something here?

Do you rely on GPS in Europe or what?
