A GPS maker advances development of the navigation gadget. Its newest technology employs real-time gas prices to help users find the cheapest gas station. So consumers can shave dollars off their next gas bill after spending hundreds for the device.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

A company that makes those navigation devices says its newest technology uses real-time gas prices to help you find the cheapest gas station on the map, so you can go there and shave dollars off your next gas bill and save money - after you've spent $500 for the device.
