Feeling lost in all the post-Thanksgiving sales? If you're shopping for a portable GPS system, Consumer Reports has some directions for you. The magazine says there will be several name-brand systems for less than $150 come Friday morning, but be careful which road you go down.

Using their past research, the staff at CR greenlights several GPS deals they have recommended, and which ones could be dead ends. Take the Garmin nuvi 660 (pictured above). It's a Consumer Reports top pick, and available for $400 (normally $800) at Best Buy this Friday and Saturday. Or a CR Quick Pick is the Garmin StreetPilot C330, available Friday at Wal-Mart for $129 (usually $168.54).

GPS shoppers can read (for free) the CR buying guide, here, or watch a video here.
