Re: Nuvi-Useful Addition Features

#21 Post by darthobiguan » Mon Aug 20, 2007 4:40 pm

hmm.....

I really really wish that I can use it as

1. Tracking.... I am getting very frustrated with the lack of tracking ability.

2. Comes with a built in Artificial Intellegence and able to interface with my car.

3. Comes with extra accessories called "Knight Industries Three Thousand" or KITT for short. It is a black pontiac firebird with built in laser, rear smoke and oil spray, turbo function, air brake and many more.

4. Nuvi should come with a digital certificate of "License to Kill".

5. Nuvi can transform into a spy robot. Can sneak into anywhere including Air Force One.

Hahahaha.....

Details while navigating

#22 Post by tkyau » Tue Aug 21, 2007 9:39 am

Hello guys,

Just one question. I am using Nuvi 200 and was wondering can i see detail like traffic light, toll and stuff like that at the map while navigating? I know the map has traffic lights etc but when i use it to navigate i can see those details. I have put map details to max but still the same. Any idea why?

Thanks
Yau

Do not have a Nuvi200 but what I did observed is that the smaller screen units tend to show less details vs the larger screens Nuvis. Maybe this is the software that limits the amount of details so as not to clutter the screen real estate. :-?

I don't see a need for a SDHC. Unlike a DSLR, especially if you taking pictures at a few frames per second where the buffer needs to transfer to the card fast enough otherwise it will slow down, this sort of thing doesn't happen in a GPSr. There is no buffer to speak of and besides, one map is loaded at a time and even if it's a second or two faster with a SDHC it isn't going to make much of a difference. Unless money is no objective to you and you want the very best for your set, any ordinary SD card would suffice.

Thanks Redstorm bro,


SDHC is SD High Capacity, it actually has slower or similar speed then ordinary SD cards. I'm looking for capacity and not speed. Thinking of using the nuvi as my primary MP3 player when i'm at work that's why :P

Oops.... sorry, I thought you were refering to a high speed card. I don't use anything higher than 2GB, that's why I am not in touch with high capacity card.

Is TTS very useful

#29 Post by kentng » Tue Aug 21, 2007 11:43 am

Dear all,

I have been viewer since last forum and now decided to get a GPS myself. Planning a trip to Koh Samui next year.

I need some opinion from experience users. Does TTS really make a different during navigation ?

I like Nuvi 200 as the price is reasonable with features i need. I do not need others features like photo viewer, MP3, Bluetooth etc except GPS navigation.

Nuvi 200 does not come with TTS, the next product will be Nuvi 350.

Question to those who use the features before :

Is it worth to spend more to get the Nuvi 350 just for the TTS features ?

thanks and best regards

Actually, it's a matter of personal preference. Am using a 660 with a TTS. Initially, I intended to buy the 610 but it was out of stock and the dealer recommended me the 660. To me, the TTS helps a lot and I love it. Except for some funny pronounciation especially with roads with Malay names, the TTS serves as a confirmation that I am on the right track.
