Not sure about Nuvi 200, but on my Nuvi 610, there is a setting where you can set the map details to HIGHEST.

If it is bulit for automotive, then i believe the garmin engineer would have though of the heat or the operating temperature in the various different environment in different countries, spring, summer, winter etc

My guess is that it will work fine.


Just left any of plastic material on your dashboard under direct sun light.. See whether the garmin engineer did something on that or not??... i would like to know it myself also..


I read in a motoring magazine many many years ago that one of the lowest temp. area is the glove compartment. I guess this is a generic statement and depends on the location and design of the glove compartment. I have not put a thermometer to test it out though.
In general, putting something under sunlight subjects it to strong UV light and if you notice, pails, containers, cloths, even paint fade with time when under the sun. Some plastics have additives which make them UV resistant and supple. I hope some plastic engineer can provide more details. I have come across products undergoing temp/humidity tests but rarely do I come across direct sunlight (UV) tests. Military applications might require them. Plastics under direct sunlight might fade and/or warp over time. Putting in glove compartment would certainly be better in this instance. Condensation can be more damaging to electronics. Camera and lenses have special warnings not to cycle though big temp differences like hot/cold. Your specs misting up when you get out of the car is one example though it might not be an extreme example.

rgds,

I don't have a nuvi 200 but I noticed that when I zoom in on my Nuvi 610, more details are shown.... Might work on yours too...

I've just change from nuvi 200 to 310. I guess the detail on nuvi 200 r much less compared to 310. Its the matter of the model n price.

I have had my nuvi stuck on the windshield mount day in day out now. Did not read the warning in the manual. So far no problems with my nuvi. Perhaps it is the vkool tint which is protecting it.

Well for me heat or no heat i rather not put my Navi in the open while i'm away from the car. Just don't want those inteligent thieves to notice my car is equipt with one.

A simple discerpline might help by keeping it in a proper area. This may also help for the battery cell or the component inside last long. :thumbsup:

Sorry only my 2cent opinion. :oops:

Thanks for all your reply, looks like TTS is useful in city navigation.

i checked Garmin Website, Nuvi 300 does not support TTS.

Is it because of the recent software updates ?

S480, price is quite ok. Any Malaysia user buy this Nuvi 300 with TTS recently ?

What is the price and where you get it ?

Currently checking with Jchin but no reply yet.

regards
Kent


Nuvi 300 with TTS are for China market. Mine comes with TTS. I was buying the lowest range of nuvi so I went for nuvi 300 because I did not need the bells and whistles of the higher end models which to me are not useful enough to justify the cut-throat price tag. I bought mine from Perfect Watch at SLS. My set had TTS and it was a surprise bonus to me. In addition, mine comes with original Garmin SG/JB map. I bought an additional SD card for my malsing maps. Those brothers who bought at 400-500+ comes without the original Garmin map.

TTS is useful when you want to keep your eyes on the road. A driver has to look out for traffic, pedestrians, road signs, etc. To navigate to an unfamiliar territory TTS is great. Probably less useful in your usual route but you can always turn it off. Having the option is better than none.
