Garmin Nuvi 1200 GPS Sat Nav

 

Although the Garmin Nuvi 1200 is designed for use on the road it is also constructed with handheld use and pocket storage in mind. That means it is a slim, light and relatively small unit designed to provide satellite navigation to people who are not...

European mapping is included and the touch screen interface has been simplified for ease of use when your mind is on other things. It also has speed camera locations throughout Europe and various intelligent software tools that are designed to...

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

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.
