"Excellent entry level GPS"4.5 starson by nedsg
Pros: No flip up antenna - Bright screen
Cons: Only one power source -in car, No text to speech
Summary: I had a Garmin 350 last year until it got ran over accidently. Great GPS,fast forward to now.
I was about to order another one when the Garmin 200 series came to the market.
I did some research and figured why not go for an entry level GPS.
I found that the 350 had many features that I just didn't use,and the 200 just fit the bill.
The great thing is that the A/C charger that came with my 350 also works with my 200.
I did notice that the 200 has a little trouble finding satellites indoors, but outside in the car I never lost reception.
This is a GPS you could buy for your parents and they would have very little trouble using it.
This GPS doesn't have text to speech, but after having a GPS with it, I really didn't miss it that much,and it can't be beat at its price point.
The maps could use a little update and you have to search a little while to find certain POI's.
Over all this is an excellent GPS.
I found it at Shipdog.com for under $300.00!
