    Pros: Up to date maps, voice directions, preloaded business addresses with more downloads available.
    Cons: None that we've found so far.

    Summary: This is our first GPS system and we used it for a trip from Northeastern PA to Sandusky, OH. We nicnamed it "Lola" same as Robin Williams in the RV movie. One thing I love about this system is that she actually tells you what lane to be in when ... read more

    Pros: Many happy journeys with ease just by putting in an address.
    Cons: Wished I had found this when we started RVing.

    Summary: Fantastic! We are Rvers and travel all over the country. This device has saved our marriage. I was in charge of getting us from point a to b and I hate reading maps. When you have an RV you can't turn around when you make a mistake in the directions as ... read more

    Pros: Voice guided, swivel suction cradle, and nice screen colors.
    Cons: No standard charger comes in kit, only the car charger is included.

    Summary: At first I was going to get a TomTom because they were on sale but changed my mind at the last minute when I was told that Garmin was the market leader. I am glad that I did. When I got home with it, I charged it a little and then turned it on to play ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: Does not include Canada. You have to buy a $75 memory card to get Canada.

    Summary: I was torn between buying a Tom Tom that is of similar capabilities and price as the Nuvi 200W. I know that Garmin is probably the leader of this new market of portable GPS units because they have been a long time standard in the marine industry. The ... read more

    Cons: Doesn't name streets or have real time traffic report.

    Pros: Great screen, very user friendly, can change characters, TONS of POIs
    Cons: Sometimes you need to just use the map instead of the on-screen directions

    Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 200 series; simple, cost efficient, helpful if you're completely lost... What can I say, I paid around $250 for this little guy and I got what I paid for, and that's not necessarily a bad thing in this case. Sure it's not the most ... read more
