Garmin Nuvi 200 Map Updates vs Pre-Loaded Mapping
The pre-loaded maps that come on the Nuvi 200 are very clear and easy to understand and in our opinion are a lot better than the mapping that would come on an equivalently priced TomTom sat nav. As you drive you will notice that the map on the screen starts to display with a distorted perspective so it stretches and tilts – this is a clever move on Garmin’s behalf as it means it will compress the roads in the distance so you are able to see a lot further into the future.
Any new directions and routes that you download to this GPS will still retain the quality data and display characteristics of the original pre-loaded ones. In fact over the last two years Garmin maps have become even better and offer an improved experience.
The Garmin Nuvi 200 GPS is compact and very thin and accepts points of interest files via the Free Garmin POI Loader. If you are looking for a cheap Garmin Nuvi then this model is a great choice, and although it is now a few years old, it is still one of the best-selling sat nav products on the planet.
