How to Use your GPS Legally

How to use your GPS LegallyDid you know that using a GPS while driving can be considered illegal? Well… it depends on when and how you use it. We think that GPSs can save a lot of time and effort which is why we want to educate you on how to use your GPS legally.

According to a recent article by Consumer Reports, the NHTSA reported that 421,000 people were hurt and or died in collisions involving distracted drivers. Some of those accidents occurred while drivers were inputting data or looking at directions on their GPS.

Here are a few tips when using your GPS. You should follow these at all times to remain focused on the road and to refrain from getting a ticket.

  • Choose the right device for you. If you do a lot of commuting where you need a GPS, consider getting a standalone GPS instead of using your smartphone. Smartphones eat data and battery life that you may need later.
  • Get as hands-free as you can. In no state are you allowed to hold a electronic device like a smartphone or GPS while you’re driving. Make sure you program your device for the destination before you take off.
  • Mount your device in the right spot. Don’t let your GPS hinder your ability to see out of the windshield. Try sticking your GPS to the dashboard instead of suctioning it to the windshield. Windshield mounts are illegal in 28 states anyway.

Do you have any GPS tips you would add to this list? Let us know in the comment section below! Happy Travels from DeVoe Buick GMC.

Here at DeVoe Buick GMC, we couldn’t agree more that the 2014 Regal offers the power, performance, and luxury that you would expect from its German competitors. The all-new Regal is, however, able to offer everything at an affordable price which is what really sets it apart from the others.

Doesn’t Matter How Old You Are – You’ll Love the 2014 Buick Regal Turbo!

We love it when car reviewers from big organizations get behind the wheel of cars we sell to see what they think. Most of the time we see nothing but glowing reviews! And a glowing review is exactly what we got from the New York Times earlier this month on the 2014 Buick Regal.

Mr. Tom Voelk had this to say about the new and improved Regal after his extended test drive:

“The Regal’s handsome lines and capable sport sedan moves are what interest (my son). The car — sold in Europe as the Opel Insignia — is also quiet, comfortable and, at $38,270 as tested, stuffed with technology that was science fiction in the ‘60s.”

So it’s loaded with technology, looks cool, is quiet and comfortable, and is appealing to a wide range of age groups? Awesome!

whether you are looking for a nice luxury car as you start your career, or you’re just getting settled into retirement, the 2014 Buick Regal deserves a good hard look. Come take one for a test drive of your own at DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples today!

The 2015 GMC Canyon Expected to Pack Some Added Punch

When plans for the 2015 GMC Canyon were first announced, everyone jumped to conclusions about how much power it would have. However, it wasn’t until earlier this month that we know for sure how much power is going to be under the hood.

According to Autoblog:

“Extended Cab models of both trucks come standard with a 2.5-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder rated at 200 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 191 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. That’s a bit more than the 193 hp and 184 lb-ft originally reported for the duo. The standard transmission for the extended trucks is a six-speed manual, but the Work Truck trim is also available with an optional six-speed automatic. Towing for the four-cylinder is rated at 3,500 pounds.”

The 2015 GMC Canyon will be a force to be reckoned with – and don’t you forget it! Keep checking our blog and Facebook page for more updates about this beast of a truck.
