I suggest you go down to Perfect Watch at ground floor of SLS to take a look. Speak to Mr. Yan and he can advise you on a model that suits your need and pocket.

Hi ablaze, how much did you pay for 200w? Where did you get the unit from? I am also considering getting either the 200 or 310..

Is Nuvi 260 available (here) ?
I don't think so. Nuvi 260 is more expensive :$gone: than the wide screen nuvi200W - because one has to pay for the preloaded maps [of either Europe or North America] and of coz it speaks road names - which r not really useful in this part of the world. Go for Nuvi260 only if it is going to be used in those locations.

I'm sure in Mal/Sing ppl r in favour of 200W for the price and better screen resolution [480x270 vs 320x240]. :mrgreen:

nuvi 260 - routing stopped prematurely

#10 Post by watchthewaves » Thu Feb 07, 2008 4:18 pm

Hi,

Anyone can help here?

I was travelling to a previously saved destination along Sembawang Road. When I turned onto Sembawang Rd, the routing suddenly stopped. No more purple line to show the route -- and of course no more voice instructions, turning instructions or distance to destination info. At first, I thought that I had made a mistake previously when I saved the destination (ie too early along the road). But then, when I approached the destination, the checkered flag was there at the correct place. The nuvi stopped routing about a couple of kms too early.

So why did the nuvi stop routing?
