MSN Direct Services Fuel feature tip and alternative


Not everyone has the MSN Direct Services for their GPS so here is tip for the next best thing if you have cell phone with Internet.

Go to and do a Search for prices by City/State or Zip/Postal Code. This will get you the best prices but of course it won't show how close they are to you.

For those with the MSN Direct feature I like to use this in conjunction with my nuvi 680 because the 680 only shows the gas prices for those nearest your current location. The shows the lowest prices in my city. So if I know where my plans are taking me for the day I know I can get the best possible price.

nüvi 680, nüvi 770, Garmin Mobile XT, etc...
