  • Summary: This is a very good basic GPS system, it is accurate, good signal strenght, could be better but is OK, I bought it as second hand item so the price was the best, it gives value to your money. Reliable and easy to use.

Garmin Nuvi 200w car gps receiver

thomasp5075, Ebay

  • Summary: I think it's a good gps unit for the car. It's simple to put in the address and overall easy to use. It tells you when a turn is coming with the arrow pointing on the street. It does not speak the street name. It reroutes quickly if you miss a turn. I prefer the map of the Nuvi 200w over my 255w. It does a good job of getting you where you want to go.The unit I bought was basically new and has worked perfect from the first time I tried it out.

Garmin nuvi 200w

  • Summary: The only negative thing about these units, is the way it tells you directions. At first you will miss turns and be in the wrong place, it takes a little getting used to. That is the only flaw to this unit. Very intuitive, easy to use, and an absolute must have if you live in or frequent large cities. I currently own 3 of these units. all are over 2 years old, all work flawlessly still.

Garmin nuvi 200w

1anglercal, Ebay
6 October 2009
  • Summary: This is an older model Garmin. I also have a TomTom 130 3rd edition, which I have been using for a couple of years. I got the nuvi because the Tomtom does not announce the name of the street coming up -- and the nuvi doesn't do it orally either, but it does post the name at the top of the screen, which is OK. That's the best thing about the nuvi. I don't like the mounting system, which is a ball and socket.

"Kewl GPS! Not always the best, but..."

  • Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.
  • Cons: Sometimes it wants me to go the wrong way on a one way street, but that's easy enough to figure out. Often it can't find satelite or loses satalite. (See more in bottom line summary.)

"Easy, portable, and fast!"

michlynpa, CNET
5 May 2009
  • Pros: This GPS is one of the most user friendly devices I've tried. The menus are straight forward, the touch screen is responsive, and the directions are easy to follow. I've had no problems with sattelite reception in big cities.
  • Cons: There is sometimes a small delay in acquiring sattelites, especially if it's overcast. The detour function is a bit tricky. I tried to detour around heavy traffic, but device kept rerouting me back to the road I wanted to avoid.
