GPS Steals and Deals - 4/13



The Nuvi 200W now under $190
. If you are looking at an entry level Standard Screen unit (i.e. Nuvi 200), without Text to Speech, consider the extra $40 for the Nuvi 200W at $188. Basic Widescreen navigation, 48-state maps, easy to use interface; See the Widescreen difference. More info below.

Garmin Nuvi 5000 is shipping - 5.2-inch screen; this Wider-screen than normal 4.3-inch widescreens offers even better readability on top of the easy to use Garmin interface. See below for more; buy at Amazon for $200 savings over Circuit City.


Standard Screens - 3.5-inch


  • Garmin Nuvi 200 at Amazon - $159 No Text to Speech, Continental US Maps, solid interface and routing. (Saw it this morning on sale at Circuit City for $199) See My Full Review - Nuvi 200 for more info.

  • Garmin Nuvi 260 at Amazon - $225 Text to Speech, Maps of North America, solid interface. Same quality routing as Nuvi 200, just adds more maps and text to speech. At this point, I am recommending the Nuvi 260 with its updated interface, newer design and slightly lower price; for more see: Compare the Nuvi 260 vs. the Nuvi 350
