Garmin portable GPS navigators are great devices, in fact Garmin make the best mid-range GPS systems in my personal humble opinion. Any prospective or recent buyer of a Garmin GPS should however be aware that they are going to need to purchase a protective carrying case if they are going to preserve that big touch screen LCD display; one small scratch and your enjoyment is instantly tarnished. Thankfully, there are a number of manufacturers of great sleeves / cases for 4.3 inch Garmin models; although there are also a number of poor quality products on the market too; a sleeve style case is sufficient for protection against scratches and general bumps whilst a harder shell style case will provide you with much greater levels of protection against drops.

Garmin 4.3 Inch Carrying Cases
Perhaps the best sleeve style carrying cases are made and sold by Garmin themselves, although other brands also make hard shell cases which undoubtedly offer greater protection against drops and major bumps. A carrying case or sleeve for your 4.3 Inch Garmin GPS Navigator will cost you $20 maximum, they can even be had for less than $10, due mainly to there being several great products competing. On this page I take a brief look at a few of the best Garmin 4.3 Inch Sleeves and Cases, those that I consider to be the best available.
