Suggest you visit Garmin International website @http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us for detailed comparison of the various models.

The features you mentioned are common in most decent GPS model but if you need TTS (eg in 500 metres turn left to Robinson Road), then this feature is only available in the higher end (ie more expensive) models that also come with blue tooth. Cheaper model will just tell you to turn left in 500 metres.

Try the Nuvi 200 or 200W models. If you are in Singapore, visit PW for a hands on feel of the models.

If your budget allows..... get the 760T.

It has all that you mentioned and more.... what I find really useful would be the route planning function which allows you to store multiple routes.

Besides Garmin website, you can also visit http://www.gpsmagazine.com/2007/06/garm ... review.php for a comparison of the various models.

Note that 300 and 600 series are the slightly older series, although still good.

If you want TTS, you have to get 300 series and above. However, TTS does not work very well on local roads due to difficulties in pronouncing local road names e.g. Turn left into Kilogram Java Road.

All the other features are standard features found on the Nuvi. Avoidance of ERP etc depends on whether this info is in the map.

All Nuvis can use the malsingmaps map.

Hi,
I am looking for a Nuvi and realised that there are so many Nuvi range. Basically I need a comprehensive function like, voice guide, auto rereoute, avoid ERP, u-turn, tell me"turn left to hill street" - a full function on GPS guide. The model must allow me to add malsingmaps for new updates! The chipset must be sifstar III.
The size does not matter. I do not need FM trasmitter and all other fuction like blue tooth as I just to want get a cheap enough model and use wholly for GPS purpose only. I just need a full function GPS with no other funny features.


Any recommendation which model I should look for?

Thanks

:welcome: bro magicdust :welcome: to malsingmaps.

1. POIs as edited / created in mapsource are in xxx.gdb format. When you transfer into device, it will go into a file current.gpx
2. All your Nuvi POI "Favorites" are stored in /garmin/gpx/current.gpx. You have no choice to save it under a different
name. It is advisable to backup this file as should your Nuvi for whatever reasons crash, you can recover your favorites.
When you read the files of your device via mapsource and save it, it will be saved as xxx.gbd format.
