Which models of Budget rental vehicles are equipped with GPS?
Since GPS navigation is a portable system, it can be used with any Budget vehicle. So, whether you’re renting a standard Toyota Yaris or a family-size Lan Cruiser SUV, Budget’s GPS can open up a whole new road to adventure!
How accurate is the GPS?
Today's GPS units are extremely accurate, thanks to their high-sensitivity receivers. However, certain atmospheric factors, including severe weather and other sources of error, can affect the accuracy of GPS receivers. Our GPS receivers are usually accurate from 3 meters to 30 meters whether they are used within a city in clear day or over the road under a heavy weather.
How easy-to-use is the GPS system? I’m not a very technical person.
No need to worry - based on the Garmin Nüvi 200w/205w series with its 4.3” touch screen, our GPS is very simple to use. Each GPS unit comes with a quick-start guide, power cord, and a window suction cup. It's so easy to use, you won't even need the included quick-start guide (but we've included it just in case).
To search for an address in your GPS device, try these easy tips:
1. Peruvian Cities are divided in Districts; for example: Miraflores, San Isidro and Cercado de Lima are some of the Districts within Lima City; just like Cayma and Yanahuara are some of the Districts within Arequipa City. For a more accurate search result, the maps in our GPS use the name of the District as a reference, so when the GPS ask you to “Spell City” you must input the District name instead of the City name.
2. When a street name is a personal name like “José Larco” usually you will only need to input the last name (“Larco”) to find the route, however with street names like “Juan de Aliaga” or “Oscar R. Benavides” is better to type the full name or the first name and then select the right one from the result list. Avoid entering additional information like “Avenida / Av.”, “Calle” (Spanish for Avenue / Ave. and Street).
3. For addresses or cities with a letter “ñ” on it try replacing the “ñ” with a letter “n”. Instead of typing “Cañete” try searching for “Canete”.
