Garmin Nuvi 200W Review

 

After living in New York City for 10 years, hopping on some train to get to some part of the city was such a mundane part of life that I never really appreciated it. Two months ago, my job required me to move to Boston, and in Boston I had my own car...

Garmin nuvi 200W review

 

UPDATE: A similar but newer model, the nuvi 205W, adds quite a few features, and has occasionally been selling for a little less than the 200W.

Garmin Nuvi 200W and 250W Widescreen Car GPS Navigators

 

As with televisions, consumers are looking for wide screen displays for their navigation devices. Garmin has delivered wide screen with the Nuvi 200W and Nuvi 250W. Both have a bright, sunlight readable 4.3-inch color touchscreen display with WQVGA...

Garmin nüvi 200W Sat-Nav

 

Garmin recently added widescreens to its 200-series line-up so Jon took this one for a test drive.

Likewise, the maps, which cover UK and Ireland here (the 250w adds European maps) are extremely clear and easy to read; better than TomTom's or Mio's in my humble opinion. Initially they look a bit cartoon-like with their bright colours and thick...

GPS

 

It was cheap

I took this GPS out of the box, updated it and made sure it was fully charged. The first time I tried to use it it said "loading maps" and would never load. It would not even work. I returned it immediately

Garmin 200w

 

This is a very good unit it will get me around. The thing I like is you can program this one as you are moving and this happens to me often as a chauffeur when a customer decides to go some other place not in my direction. My other unit you must be at...

Nuvi 200W

 

I had a 1300W stolen so I wanted a cheap gps that worked nicely. This works nicely. Like I stated in cons it does not speak road names but I never have the volume up anyway because I don't rely on the gps all that much.

Cheap, and has many good features without being overly complicated

Does not speak road names, and not such a con but it does not scroll if you slide your finger through lists (just uses up and down touch arrows)

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works fine

 

Does everything I would want for this price range. Excellent buy. I tested this first on locations where I knew that way already. In some cases it gave me directions that I currently take after weeks of trial and error on my own. It figured out the...

Would like it to be more flexible, but for this price I can't complain
