Any one can upgrade nuvi 200W to nuvi200W firmware
when will garmin upgrade all Nuvi 200W series with 205W firmware look and feel is much better and more feature screen at 205W.

Thank you.
mydear


I asked Garmin about this feature. They not going to come up with the firmware to make 200W looks like 205W. If so, who would want to buy 205W? Better buy 200W and upgrade firmware..Right? :)

cheaper way is to buy a second hand lah. even a brand new 200W donly slightly more than USD199.99 in Singapore (during sales, only SGD299). March IT sales coming ...

Damage from accident (ie dropping) is not covered by warranty. :(

it happen to me on the first day i buy nuvi200.
The lcd broken. It still can look but the touch screen function is broke. cannot claim under warranty.
i sent it for repair and the cost about RM350.

when i sent it, 1 month later reseller give nuvi200 back to me because it travel to Taiwan to repair it. so waste time.
