GPS Nuvi 200

For Malaysian, Garmin is the most optimum choice when it come to GPS navigation. Although there are several other GPS brand in Malaysia e.g. Mapking but Garmin is the most recommended one.

Nuvi 200 is the entry level All-in-One (AiO) standalone GPS navigation system offered by Garmin. As an entry level, it primary function is for navigation with picture viewing capability. No other fancy stuffs e.g. integrated Bluetooth for hand-free or FM TMC traffic receiver which anyway is not available in Malaysia.

As for the map, Garmin do have Malaysia and SIngapore maps included but they are not frequently updated. The best map source for Malaysia and Singapore is of course from http://www.malsingmaps.com. The maps are freely available for download.

To entitle for further updates (updated every month), you need to do the followings:

  1. Register as Malsingmaps.com member in the forum
  2. Own GPS navigation system that can do tracking/mapping (Garmin Nuvi 200 can be hacked to use tracking function). However, the best option is to use Windows Mobile devices or other handheld GPS dedicated for mapping/tracking.
  3. Contribute at least two new Point-of-Interest (POI) or new tracks to community.
  4. To contribute, you need to PM to the forum administrators (depend on your area) by providing your GPSID with links to your contributions.
