Garmin nuvi 1200

 

The nuvi 1200 with its 3.5-inch touch-screen is Garmin's entry-level device. It features text-to-speech navigation, an improved pedestrian mode and an overhauled interface.

In the short-medium term standalone devices remain more convenient in South Africa and they will likely always have a place in the market, but the nüvi 1200's RRP of R2300 will cause many to think twice. The fact that is an excellent device is...

Great GPS for little money.

 

Easy to use. It found my daughter's house up in mountains with no problem. Easy to update software on line and you can use camera data cable. Went to Asheville NC and would have been lost a lot except for the Nuvi. Love this GPS

Garmin n?vi 1200 Life Saver! ”

 

This is our 2nd Garmin Nuvi, so far we are loving it. We just needed something simple and easy to understand. The Garmin nüvi 1200's speaker directional instruction is Loud and clear. Garmin Nuvi 1200 is small and can just slip into the shirt pocket,...

Garmin nuvi - great price for great GPS ”

 

This was my first GPS purchase, and I was very pleased.  Bought last year on Black Friday for a steal of a deal.  I was worried I wasn't buying high enough quality.  But I was wrong!  This GPS has so many wonderful features.  This is a must for any...

Good

 

I feel a bit more liberated and comfortable with this GPS device. It is great - the only thing is that it takes a while to get the positioning of the vehicle and that is a bit annoying when I just want to jump in and go.
