Take $50 off Garmin's SmartDrive 65 GPS with built-in Alexa today only

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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), 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.

It has built-in Wi-Fi so you don't have to plug it into a computer to get map updates. You can change the settings to avoid highway and tolls and the traffic updates help you steer clear of jams and backups.

The best part about the DriveSmart 65 is its Alexa integration. You can ask Alexa to play music from Amazon Music, Pandora, Sirius XM, iHeartRadio, and more. You can also use Alexa to create to-do lists, check your calendar, news, weather and traffic, and control smart home devices just like you would via one of Amazon's own Echo devices (opens in new tab). It's pretty clever and sets it apart from your bog-standard GPS system.
