    Hi peeps.

    The Garmin Nuvi 200 is now on sale here in the US. I just hope this unit will work in the Philippines (Manila, Laguna, and Cavite area) because I'm sure gonna buy one and install it on my Hyundai Getz.

    Anyone of you ever tried this unit and used it in the places I listed above?

    Thanks.

    The device works well with the Philippine road map. The only caveat is that it does not know that some of the roads in our area in Paranaque City are closed by several village associations - but no problem with me, I know the place very well anyway.


    The Nuvi 200 is very useful in navigating other areas of Metro Manila that I'm not familiar with.


    By the way, Nuvi 200 is the entry level product. I bought it for $239 in Orlando FL. The reason for buying the entry level was that it was basically experimental on my part, as I'm not sure if it will work in the Philippines. I should have bought the Nuvi 200W though, have I known that it is only around $20-$30 more expensive - it has a bigger screen of 4.3".


    I'm satisfied however with the Nuvi 200 that I bought. It worked wonders for me in Orlando, and it is working well so far here in Manila.


    Other useful functions of the Nuvi 200 are as follows - world map, world time, currency converter, calculator, and picture viewer.
    I will be having my Nuvi 200 come in in about two weeks, how do you initially set it up? Just out of the box and it would work immediately? Please advise. Thanks!

Mas mura pa ang inabot ng system nya kasi he doesn't need to buy the GPS since it's already built in na sa device namin. What's good is that we use a 20 channel GPS module unlike ung ibang GPS na 12 channel lang. Mas accurate ang bato ng coordinates. So those who wanted to have security and navigation system all in one, u can consider our device.

    Just follow the instructions below -

    1. Install MapSource on your computer. Note that the disk is DVD and not a CD.
    2. Download the 5.00 Beta version of the maps from the site - http://www.freewebs.com/phroadguide/index.htm

    3. Run the exe progam that you downloaded. This will install the maps in your MapSource.
    4. Open MapSource. In the drop down list of the the maps, select Phillipines Routable v5.00 Beta.
    5. Using the Map select tool, highlight the map segments (or all of them) that you want to load to your GPS unit.
    6. Connect your GPS unit to your computer with the USB cable.
    7. Click the Send to Device button in MapSource.
    8. When the Send to Device dialog box comes up, select your GPS unit or your SD card as the destination.

    11. Clik Ok when MapSource is done sending the maps.
    12. Disconnect your GPS unit from your computer.
    13. Once the unit boots up, check to be sure the maps are selected. Wrench/Settings > Map > Map Info
    14. Pan and browse the map to the area where the maps are located. You should see the outline boxes of the map segments.
    15. Zoom in.

    Thanks for the reply. Last question, the mapsource, is that included on the GPS Unit? or do I have to download it from somewhere?

    Yup, i followed the same instructions from the same website to install mapsource ... my nuvi200 did not come with cd installer ... but if you're still in US, i believe that you can request for a copy of mapsource if you bought a Garmin GPS device.
