Can't-Miss, Last-Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

June 18, 2011

Looking for a last-minute Father’s Day gift idea for a dad who may or may not love to drive? Do you have a dad who’s hard to shop for? While a 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera Black Edition is an outstanding choice for Father's Day, it's probably beyond most of our budgets. Besides, you don't have to spend a fortune to nail the perfect Father's Day gift, so following are five suggestions that your dad will love, even if he doesn’t have 10w 30 flowing through his veins.

No matter what age demographic your dad’s in, chances are better than average that he has a smartphone. My father-in-law, for example, is north of seventy, but he is never seen without his trusty iPhone. Navigon offers MobileNavigator GPS solutions for all smartphone platforms, and the app is available by U.S. East, U.S. Central or U.S. West region for $24.99. Want national coverage? That’s just $34.99, and navigation for the U.S. and Canada can be your for just $44.99. We’ll warn you in advance, though: using your smartphone for GPS navigation will drain the battery pronto, so make sure your dad owns a twelve volt adapter for his smartphone (hey, there’s another gift idea).
