We are Australia's leading consumer organisation with over 160,000 members.
Set up by consumers for consumers, CHOICE is the consumer advocate that provides Australians with information and advice, free from commercial bias.
As vital today as when we were founded in 1959, CHOICE continues to fight for consumers and uncover the truth.
By mobilising Australia’s largest and loudest consumer movement, CHOICE fights to hold industry and government accountable and achieve real change on the issues that matter most.
CHOICE doesn't accept advertising or sponsorship. This means we can uncover the truth about everyday consumer issues and provide practical advice to help consumers cut through the crap.
CHOICE is Australia's largest source of expert reviews. Based on unbiased analysis and rigorous testing, we help consumers compare products and services and select what’s best for them.
(See our GPS reviews for the most up-to-date models). Most car owners have a street directory, but it's hard to beat the convenience of a GPS. This pocket-sized device can direct you to virtually any address in your capital city, as well as most rural destinations.
CHOICE tested 12 car GPS devices and three devices designed for motorbikes, in both city and country locations. Unfortunately, our testing has found performance drops off once you leave the city.
Please note: this information was current as of November 2009 but is still a useful guide to today's market. For more recent information, see our 2012 Car GPS review.
These independent ratings are only available through membership with CHOICE Online because no one tests products like we do. Arm yourself with our unique and exclusive information and make your next purchase with confidence.

If you’ve ever bought a new car, you’ll have experienced the hard sell from the dealer, pushing you to add options to the vehicle. Are any of them worth the money?

Car storage can be difficult to find on a road trip. Car roof boxes are designed to fit onto the roof bars of a car to solve this lack of space.
