Rumor Nuvi 200 Series Widescreen? Nuvi 200W & 250W

Update: The Nuvi 200W and Nuvi 250W have been officially announced!


So there is some news coming out of Europe, specifically GPSPassion that Garmin is announcing a Nuvi 200 series in a widescreen model. In talking with Garmin there is no official confirmation at this point.

Not a total surprise, as widescreens are popular and increasingly crawling down into the value end of the segment. With the TomTom ONE XL at $399, and the Mio C520 in the mid-$300's, it is a smart move to launch a widescreen for the masses. At this writing, the lowest priced widescreen out of the Garmin shop is the Nuvi 600, which is in the mid-$500's.

We'll wait and see...

Ya know, I don't understand the hype around widescreen GPS devices. My first GPS was actually a Dell Axim X5 with a compact flash GPS. Being a PDA, it was oriented portrait rather than the common landscape mode of today's PNAs. In many ways, I preferred the portrait mode as it let me "see" farther down the road ahead. In landscape (or landscape widescreen!) mode, you see more to the left and right of you, but that's really of no benefit when driving and navigating. I'd rather see what's farther ahead.
