Charlie White, from our brother gadget-loving site, recently went hands-on with four GPS units β€” the Cobra NavOne GPSM 4500, the Mio C710 DigiWalker, the Garmin StreetPilot c550 and lastly the Honda Civic Hybrid Factory-installed GPS Navigation System (yeah, we dunno why they tested that one too β€” maybe they should have saved the last one for a climactic money shot with other factory-installed systems, but whatevs). As part of the hands-on, Charlie did a test run with all four units simultaneously. Watch in horror as Charlie takes two opposing directions at the same time, and ends up spinning the wheel clean off the steering column β€” eliciting a laugh from the Civic's now-in-control Nav system. Mwah-ha-ha!
