Summary: My Nuvi 200 survived the initial 1-year warranty. A few months later, the power started shorting out. Evidently, the minor torque created by the cord is enough to break the internal connection between the power cord and the battery. I opened the little bugger up and noticed that the only connection to the battery is through a small, metal cage which sits upon the charger. This is connected to the main body on one side and not very well.
Summary: I purchased my Garmin in November 2007. In September 2008, the Garmin completely stopped functioning and directed me to purchase a map update on their site. I went to the site and discovered that I needed to first purchase a USB cable to connect the device. $20 and two weeks later, the cable arrived. I logged onto the Garmin's website and went through an hour long product registration process to see if I qualified for a free map update.
Summary: We have used our Nuvi 200 for the past six months travelling in our motorhome and in our Jeep. My wife (The Navigator) and I decided that on balance, the Nuvi has been a negative to helping us navigate. Many times, the Nuvi is spot on, and we glide to our destination. However, there have been enough ocassions where the gadget is wrong and misleading, delivering unwanted surprises and just plain erroneous information so that, at the end of the day, the negatives outweigh...

Summary: Well having read the reviews my mind was made up to get the Gramin 200 widescreen and initally everything seemed fine, I liked the nice and easy layout and the pre-installed places of interest that were available. The first couple of weeks had me travelling locally and the Gramin worked fine, however I had need to travel from Leeds to Birmingham 2 weeks after I bought the Gramin and this is where I had problems.
Summary: I had to send this back as the touch screen buttons often didn't work and when they did, they usually operated an adjacent button instead. The directions were poor too: I used it once on a route I knew and would have ended up in a dead end country lane had I trusted it. It's now heading back for a refund.
Summary: I got the Garmin a few weeks ago and it worked perfectly. Everything was clear, the screen was nice and big, the directions all okay... and then i had to drive through central london. This thing simply loses the plot in london. It tells you to turn left and then, when you do, it stops and re-calculates your route!
Summary: das Gerät ist das Geld nicht wert, bin sehr enttäuscht Durchsagen kommen nur sehr spärlich, oder aber es zeigt eine ganz andere Richtung an lieber etwas Geld drauflegen und etwas gescheites kaufen
