You might think the idea of buying a dedicated GPS in 2019 is laughable, but they become a whole lot more useful when your phone is dead, your external battery is dead, and you're hopelessly lost. Plus, GPS devices have gotten a lot smarter in recent years. One such option is the Garmin DriveSmart 65 GPS with built-in Alexa on sale for $249.99 today at Best Buy as a one-day deal. This usually goes for $300 there and at other retailers like Amazon, so you're saving $50. We've only seen it hit this price a couple of times in the past before jumping back up to its full MSRP. Shipping is free.

This easy-to-use navigator has a bright 6.95-inch, edge-to-edge touch display and includes a mount to stick it on your dashboard. You'll get up-to-date maps, real-time traffic, and more.

It's pretty clever and sets it apart from your bog-standard GPS system.
