To help you kick off your 4th of July celebration, we thought we’d offer up four things that might make your holiday weekend even more enjoyable. First, if you’re traveling anywhere, it really helps to know the quickest way to get there. The Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS navigation system is easy to use and features turn-by-turn voice directions that announce the names of streets. The color touchscreen makes it simple to enter your destination, and an auto re-route function provides fast off-route and detour recalculation.
Want to make your trip more enjoyable for your passengers? The Clarion 15.4″ Overhead Entertainment digital monitor is like having a theater in your car. This rear-seat system has a built-in DVD player with a high-resolution LCD monitor, and it includes a wireless headphone transmitter, two headphones, and an infrared remote control with on-screen display.
If you plan on staying close to home for the 4th, the Weber Q 100 Liquid Propane table/outdoor grill is great for the beach or picnics in the park. It features a 189 square-inch total cooking area, porcelain enameled cast-iron cooking grate, push-button ignition, and a removable drip tray for easy cleaning.
To let others enjoy your iPod tunes while you’re cooking, bring along the Altec Lansing inMotion iPod portable audio system. This compact unit syncs and charges all dockable iPod models and uses rechargeable Li-ion batteries. It also has an FM radio, SFX stereo field expander for a heightened stereo effect, Superior Bass Enhancement technology, and a full-function remote.
