good for the first year...

Eddie S. Black, Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this as a basic GPS need. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles. I am in the Oregon National Guard infantry and a hiker and a geocacher. I own a couple of GPS and have used civilian and military models alike. I am also very good at using map and compass.

Wiring/recharging issues

David A. Lamb, Amazon
14 July 2009
  • 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.

Includes a Trojan Horse

Bart, Amazon

  • Summary: Works about as well as any other brand on the market, but after using it for a year the unit is programmed to force a "Map Update Notice" screen to pop up each time the unit is turned on.. Very annoying because that screen stays on unless you acknowledge it by pushing "OK"!

  • 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.

Missing some simple things that disappoint

Brajesh K Singh, Amazon

Maybe look for something else?

B.Myers, Amazon
2 April 2008
  • 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.

23 October 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this little device about 2 months ago and I have had nothing but problems with it. The biggest problem is that the charger doesn't work in my SUV in either power adapter.
