Violectric V200: The German Solid State

 

Time sure does fly… I reviewed the V100 in November of last year and I absolutely loved it. The V200's little brother turned out to be an awesome...

Hi, I’ve only heard the Rev2 of the LCD-2 and to me it sounded a tad muddy with it. I preferred the LCD-2 on the V181 as the amps more neutral signature seemed to mate with the warm signature of the LCD-2.

Acer V200 GPS receiver review

 

The GPS market has gathered pace with such wild abandon in recent times you sometimes wonder if we'll end up forgetting what they were originally for. Driven by such household names as TomTom, Garmin and Mio, modern devices are packed with so many...

Very nice to use, solid performance on the road, external volume control

Visual navigation can be a little tricky at busy intersections

The V200 ticks just about all the boxes from a basic navigation point of view, leaving us rather impressed by this very capable entry-level solution

Acer v200 series Portable Navigator

 

It's certainly well-priced, but follow it to the letter and you could end up in no-man's land.

Nor is it because it's lacking clever features or that it's poor value either. The tool that allows you to store a list of roads to avoid, for example, is excellent. This lets you put horrendous places like the M6 around Birmingham and the A11 in east...

The V200 is proof that you don't need bells and whistles, nor a gilt-edged price tag, to be a good sat-nav

The V200 is cheap and works, albeit not perfectly. Still, it's well worth a look if you are on a budget

Acer v200 Travel Companion satellite...

 

When a product does exactly what it says on the tin, and actually does it well, it's a feat worthy of celebration. But today's consumer is always looking for that little bit more.

It's hard to fault a device with few features to grumble about. Indeed, the basic, feature-thin nature of the Acer v200 Travel Companion is its main selling point. Perfect for navigation novices.

Acer - V200 GPS

 

If you were to take a slice through the mid-range to high-end GPS market you'd have your hands on a device that covers a range of countries and includes a number of handy extras such as ...

If you're not bothered about multimedia players, text viewers, Bluetooth connectivity for your phone or pre-loaded maps of Europe, you're probably paying over the odds unless you opt for an entry-level GPS. Acer's V200 is one of the best we've seen,...
