I'm the CEO of Wetpaint.com, a Seattle startup that lets anyone create a fan site for free. My job often has me driving around an unfamiliar city, in a rush to make my next appointment. To save time - and my sanity - I don't go anywhere without a GPS route planner and a radar detector to warn me of potential speed traps.

Currently my go-to road warrior gadgets are the Garmin Nuvi 350 GPS and the Escort Passport 8500 X50 radar detector. Because I'm always on the lookout for the next best thing, I decided to give two popular rival products a spin. So on my latest road trip, I tested the Magellan Maestro 4370 GPS and the Valentine One radar detector.
