It also shows you the eTrex in action while hunting for a geocache. Lastly, I give my likes and dislikes as well as give you a list of what's in the box.

Here's my new Garmin Nuvi 200 Satellite Navigator, small, cheap, and does everything you could want from an entry level Sat Nav. The Nuvi 200 goes preinstalled with street-level maps of GB and Ireland, while the slightly more expensive Nuvi 250 has street level maps of Europe as well. I've used and tested many, many sat Navs, and this is the only one I've been inspired to buy. The maps are more accurate than TomToms current ones, it fits in my suit pocket, has a bright clear screen, and is a bargain price.
