Summary: The Insignia NS-CNV43 offers advanced Internet-connected features that we like at a very competitive price, but its shaky implementation of key basic features and slow performance spoil the navigation experience.
Pros: The Insignia NS-CNV43 offers real-time traffic, Google search for points of interest, and a host of other connected services through its cellular data connection. It's also the first GPS device to integrate Twitter. It has haptic feedback, which helps to increase input accuracy with vibration, and its Bluetooth hands-free calling is a nice plus.
Cons: Slow booting, positioning, and routing somewhat sour the navigating experience. Its subscription fees for data service are expensive compared with the competition. The hands-free calling system is limited in functionality.
