Nuvi 200w is on sale at Target for 119.00. I wasnt sure if anyone would be intrested
I was thinking about getting one for the wife. What do you know about the 200w? I have a 650, would there be a trade in my future?
I have had a 200 for a year now and it is a very good unit for basic service. No MP3, no Bluetooth, no tracks, no routes, no TTS - just a basic point A to point B unit that you can do a lot of customizing with.
Mine has a 2 GB SD card, World Base Maps, and just a few custom vehicles on the unit. Everything else (except the Dr. Nightmare voice and American English with the text file) is on the SD card.
Would I like for it to have more bells & whistles, well sure. But for the price it is hard to beat as it does as good a job of routing as the more expensive ones, just with less distractions. My next will more than likely be an XX5T, probably with a wide screen if the price difference isn't too much. But last Christmas, the basic 200 was $199 with a $50 gift card bringing it down to $149.
While apparently some 200/200w do not have a track log, some 299/200w as well as the 250/250w are being built on the same hardware as is used for the 205/205w/255/255w. These newer systems will have the "trip log", which I think is what the above references as "no track". My new 250 has a trip log.
the 200w a good low end unit if updating the maps isn't important to you, you don't need Canada and Alaska, and you are willing to give up some features like saying the name of an upcoming street. If you want to be able to add a new road to account for construction, consider a Tom Tom.
