Menu...... just like Nuvi 2xxW series. Changes? Huerm.... make-up artrist lebih sikit....
But BIG value in this gadget is TTS Voice Guide System. This model using TTS Voice. There'r more than 6 choices of TTS voice to select and more langguage in Wav Voice System but I prefer American-English Samanta in my system. Nice word when call road name in bahasa.
Before this, we only can get TTS Voice in advance model like Nuvi 7xx/8xx series. But now, Garmin try to downgrade their way of interest to modified Nuvi 2xx series with TTS Voice and ..I buy this unit coz I like TTS in cheapest set.

1. .....for me. Just one........... this system when do logging use "Lock On Road only". So.... it's will stick to nearest road when off road. This LOR sometime do wierd thing when device go off road in map BUT only happen for 15 meters near road but after that, it's will do logging track refer to coordinates as usual.
2. DON'T HAVE MP3 PLAYER
3. Can't change to Track-up mode map when change from 3D-View to 2D map. Alwayz in "Follow North mode map".
