garmin gps nuvi 200

Lee, Amazon
28 November 2008
  • Summary: The GPS sent me to a resturant, the Boathouse, in Lindenhurst, NY that closed down in April 2005; a library in Camp Hill, PA that closed down over 5 years ago and to a dead end street in Sleepy Hollow for something else! Several times it would tell me to make a turn and when I would turn, it would say "recalculating". I called Garmin about this and they said that this sometimes happens.

Be careful! Some nuvi 200 have the old map.

MV, Amazon
28 November 2008
  • Summary: I ordered the Garmin Nuvi 200 from Amazon and expected it would come with the new map software (City Navigation North America NT version 2008) as others had received, but unfortunately, mine came with the old map (version 8). I called Garmin support and they wanted $75 more for the updated map.

Not thrilled with refurbished product

Ben, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • Summary: I had done a bunch of research and watched some video tutorials before buying a Garmin nuvi 200W and after using it for a month I have to say that it has met my expectations. I really like it. However... the unit I bought was refurbished and I wouldn't recommend buying a refurb. I had done my homework so I knew that I would probably have to contact product support before I'd be able to register the product and update my map.

reasonable sat nav

MH "scragg", Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Opened the box and found the vehicle suction cup was broken. I returned the unit as faulty (first time I have ever had to return anything) and was a little worried something would go wrong or charged twice etc. Well I'm happy to say it was totally hassle free,speedy and a seamless process. The replacement sat nav was fine apart from when registering for the free trial speed camera updates. The unit had already been registered, but this was unlocked by Garmin.

Good... but bad problems!

Londoner, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: This is a fantastic unit but has a major downside. It is small and has a brillianr battery life. It finds destinations and satellites very quickly even for driving in central london, everything just works on it really well although it does not have a great number of setting options( such as changing the style of voice commands, etc.

complicated slow software updates

A. Foster "fozzie", Amazon
23 June 2009
  • Summary: the reason i only gave this 3 stars is because of the complex and not very good software update web site , spent 2-3 hours geting latest map only for garmin 200 to say no maps were loaded, so spent another frustrating 2 hours before finally succeeding to download latest map to unit.having said that once done cant fault the kit for price, easy to set and works extremely well so far"

Garmin NUVI 200...c'è di meglio....

  • Summary: Io sono una grande amante dei navigatori satellitari, la loro invenzione ha salvato la vita a miglia di autobilisti nel mondo che avevano timore di perdersi intraprendendo tragitti nuovi per raggiungere nuove località per motivi di lavoro. Io mi colloco all'interno di questa categoria, mi sono sempre ripromessa che avrei aspettato a girare in macchina nelle grandi città quando avrei avuto il navigatore.
  • Pros: Ogni tanto funziona
  • Cons: Tanti

  • Excerpt: Навигатор покупался за 4200 руб с целью:
  • Pros: Крепкий, качественно собранный корпус.Удобное крепление. Быстрый поиск спутников, отличный прием. Удобный интерфейс: ничего лишнего,все интуитивно понятно. Быстро и легко обновляется через п.к. Очень хорошая автономность: аккумулятора хватает примерно на 4-5 часов непрерывной работы. И главное: благодаря ему жена наконец-то научилась пользоваться обычными картами.
  • Cons: Как автомобильный навигатор к использованию практически не пригоден (во всяком случае по сравнению с любыми конкурентами других фирм). По дворам не водит, корпусов не знает, многие улицы невозможно найти через поиск, хотя на карте они отображаются. Алгоритм поиска большинства улиц, названия которых состоят из 2-3-х слов не поддается никакой логике,как впрочем и алгоритм проложения маршрута. Очень не корректные карты: часто тащит под кирпичи (те,которые висят по неск. ...
