Just bought a NUVI 200 after the death of my beloved i3 street pilot. Got it from Halfords on offer at 169.99
What concerns me is in the box there was no software etc unlike the i3 no connection cable other than powerlead.
Is this right ?
how and where do i update this thing (if it needs updating at all ?)

any advice please ?
many thanks
Dale

The 200 series are pared right down and have no software or leads. You need to buy a USB lead to update the software or the maps.

Why not use your I3 connector cable, it does work on the Nuvi 200 Wink

My mother got a Nuvi 200 from Halfords on the same offer, seems a good bit of kit for the money, not really tested it out much myself so I cant really comment on the sound output compared to my I3

The Nuvi 200 is in a different league at seeing satellites then the I3, when she first got it I put it on charge in her car leaving it switched on, when I went back out to it had a full signal, not bad when it was inside a Mondeo with a quickclear windscreen that was parked inside a locked garage

I note that this thread is about the Nuvi 200 but as the 250 is very similar the following information may be helpful.

After much research I purchased a Nuvi 250 from Comet at Guildford where I received excellent service, having reserved over the Internet and collected from the Store. This gave me peace of mind as I could open and inspect the unit before paying for it.

By ordering over the Internet I got the 250 for 169.99. On returning from my touring holiday in Europe I checked the Comet site again and was amazed to see the same unit on offer, on that day, for about 154.99. The price on the site at the moment is 167.00 (and the 270 is on offer for 219.00).

I am a little hard of hearing but had no difficulty hearing the audible instructions in my car - a convertible , even when the top was down.

In my opinion the Nuvi 250 is an excellent unit. The only criticism I would make is that the instructions supplied are very brief and it took some time to work out how to make the most of its many capabilities.
