Refurb Nuvi 200 $87 at


Yes, it's just a 200, no bells and whistles. But for $87 it's not a bad deal. I have no idea whether buying this "recertified" unit will let you get a free upgrade to the current map software. NOTE: this is advertised as a "one day special".

I'd post a link, but it would be several lines long. Go to and do a search for N82E16858108165 which is the item number.

not such a deal

Newegg sold me my 250 for $99 with free shipping. It was new, not refurb, and the new hardware platform. Plenty of memory for map updates and POIs. It was a black Friday deal, but I've seen them sell the same thing this year at the same price. So while you could get a refurb 200 for a little less, I would avoid it and hold out for a new 250 (or better), it seems very likely that a deal on a 250 from Newegg will come around again.

You never know for sure why the refurb was returned or if it was really fixed, and it will have an older battery and maybe even the older hardware platform (and the software limitations that are linked to the older hardware).
