I need 2 mobile GPS, so after searching in Internet, right now, I have Nuvi 256W..... :-? Y looking at me like that... :D I buy laa... tak kan dapat macam tu jer.....
:thumbsup:
Rit now, I like to share with you about this device, Nuvi 256W with Euro Map.

General Lay-out:

Advantage In Lay-out:
  • WQVGA Color Touchscreen =P~ Nice colours and graphics
  • BIG SCREEN - 4.5" SCREEN. :thumbsup:
  • DETOUR SELECTABLE BUTTON ON SCREEN - can select alternative road faster when in road warning or road hazard.
  • WHERE AM I? BUTTON ON SCREEN -EZly choose where am I menu to destination
  • NEAR AND SEARCH NEAR - Near POI or Road listing about 25KM radius or more
  • FAST DATA LIKE HOSPITAL, POLICE AND GAS STATION
  • FAST DATA LIKE EXIT ROAD, RIGHT HERE COORDINATE
  • POI SHOWS IN 3D (MFM POI :thumbsup: )
  • NICE COLOUR IN DAY OR NIGHT SCENES (Night Vision look real)
  • QWERTY KEYBOARD INSTEAD ABC KEYS. Selectable.
  • PICTURE SELECT TO DESTINATION - Can select route using picture.
  • Garmin Lock™ MENU - can lock your system using coordinate and must use password when away from locking coordinate.

Menu...... just like Nuvi 2xxW series. Changes? :-k Huerm.... make-up artrist lebih sikit.... :D
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 :lol: ..I buy this unit coz I like TTS in cheapest set.

SYSTEM SPECIFICATION

Advantages:
  • SiRF Star III High-Sensitivity GPS Receiver WAAS-enabled
  • Digital Elevation Maps :peace:
  • HotFix™ Technology - Fastest coordinate relocation and calculating track or route.
    - Receive Your Position Faster
    - Predicts Satellite Locations
    When I test this system, it's take less than 1 second to read satellites \:D/
    I still got 3 meters accuracy when under rainstorm or behind bush or jungle :)
  • Voice Prompted Directions + Driver Guide :thumbsup:
  • TTS or Text To Speech - Street Names Are Announced For Guidance

THE BEST PART I LIKE THIS SYSTEM
When I test My system.......
With HotFix™ Technology function:
- It's take less than 1 second to find all 24 satellites when switch on or after re-search satellites.
- Got 3 meters accuracy under rough and thunderstorm condition.
- Got 5 meters accuracy in half-tunnel or roof-building.
- Can find and re-search satellites in 3 floor building in 15 second search and give full satellites coordination after locking satellites.
- can route or re-route in 1 second (test from Kota Bharu to Johore Bharu with MFM version 1.36 installed)
- Accuracy coordinate in 256W is excellent. Tepat dan Cepat. :thumbsup:

NEGATIVE VALUE:
1. :-k .....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 :cry:
3. Can't change to Track-up mode map when change from 3D-View to 2D map. Alwayz in "Follow North mode map".

You need to answer this questions first.

1 Does your GPS model support Lane assist function - at the time of purchase?

2 Is your unit a local registered.

These are the prerequisites. Lane assist are automatically available in Garmin compiled maps. You have to download the correct maps from the official site.
