This compact 3.5-inch device comes with some of the TomTom's basic navigation features -- including a "Help Me" function that gives directions to the nearest hospital and updates of map corrections from other TomTom users. It also has a windshield mount that can be folded flat and left on the device. But the low price only lasts through Nov. 30. After the Thanksgiving weekend, the price goes up to $129.95.
