Is it true that the newer Nuvi 200 and 700 series do not show POIs in navigation mode, unlike the older 300 and 600 series, as well as the Nuvi 200w -Taiwan version (as reported by JBNEWGUY)? This question has vexed many people. Today, I had the opportunity to test two Nuvis. First a Nuvi 200W US model. Second a Nuvi 200. Box says Singapore/Malaysia/Indonesia model but at the start screen, it shows Nuvi 200 (Indonesia). Both were loaded with the same version of malsingmaps. Both put to Bras Basah area (simulation mode) and both set to go to Bras Basah complex. The results are shown below. We went there with the intention of buying the 200w but ended up with the 200. You decide for yourself.

I also made other observations:

- US version of Nuvi 200 does not show POIs in navigation mode
- Nuvi 200 (Indon) appears to have only 512MB ROM while Nuvi 200 (US) should have 1.5 GB
- Nuvi 200 (Indon) has no pre-installed map (not counting malsing map) while 200 (US) has preinstalled US map
- Nuvi 200W does not show more of the roads as compared to 200. It just stretches the view sideways

What I heard:

- Nuvi 200 (Indon) cannot update firmware - said by shop and other users
- Nuvi 200 (Indon) has autozoom while Nuvi 200w has no autozoom - said by shop
- Nuvi 200 (Indon) is like the old 300 series

arrr... say it isnt so... i think its cool to have 200W because the screen much much much wider..but thru your observation i have to think twice whether to buy 200W.. any other user who have similar observation or opinions base on this problem???
i am going to buy a 200W here in germany..dunno if europe version can have similar problem..

Very difficult to scroll up/down to compare. So I attach all 3 pics one after another. I think 200 (Indon) view is same or similar to 200W (Taiwan) but 200W (US) is quite different. Those with different models of Nuvi should try to set their units in simulation mode to go to Bras Basah Complex and see what they get. By the way, how did you get your screen shot?

I have a Nuvi 200 (indon) with a software version of 3.60.

What I observed so far is that the POIs will appear on the screen (while in the navigating mode with a set destination) is when the map scale is 80M or below.

The screen will zoom in to that scale whenever it's a short trip with numerous turns or when it's near to the destination.

However, on a straightaway especially on the highway with the next turn which is a few KMs away, the screen map scale is always 200M. Then all the POIs will disappear.

The abov pic that were posted are in "Ready to Navigate" mode, ie no destination has been set yet. If I were to drive with no destination set, then most of the times the POIs will appear as it's in the 50M scale (sometimes dunno why it'll be at 120M-scale).

As for the software update, I've e-mailed to garmin.com before but it was forwarded to taiwan garmin, and taiwan side has replied that as it's an Asian version, it can't be updated using the WebUpdate and I need to contact the Malaysia's dealer Starlite to update the software.

I did call them up and the dealer admitted that the latest software version is 4.00 but it's a beta version which he's not sure whether there's any bugs for that software yet. So it's not recommended to install it.

Hi bro tks, it's no need to take Camera to capture the picture. In Nuvi 200w, Setting> Display >Screen shot> Enabled , then you have the Screen shot function to capture the picture. It's simple. :D

Comments on chlesoh's comments:

1. The unit I had had software version 3.90.

2. By the time I took the picture, the destination may have been reached. But I can confirm that I saw the POIs in navigation mode with a set destination (Bras Basah Complex). That's why I took the picture. In fact, for the 200W, it's the same. I took the picture when destination reached. Not sure why in 200, the flag disappeared. Noticed that this is the same even for JBNEWGUY's pic.

3. The views are 3D views. No indication of 80m or other zoom level. I forgot to try 2D views to see what happens. Confirm that I tried only short routes. Did not try long routes.

I guess need more testing to get a clearer picture.
