Garmin Nüvi 200/250: Navigation Not Just for Men

Prague, 22 March 2007 - Garmin International Inc., a global leader among GPS navigation system makers, is launching a new line of portable navigation devices, the Garmin Nüvi 200 & Garmin Nüvi 250. Both models had their global debut in recent days at Europe’s largest consumer electronics trade fair, CeBIT, in Hannover, Germany. The Garmin Nüvi 200 is a modern, stylish navigation device, for which a new and exceptionally simple control system, devoid of unnecessary functions, was developed. The Garmin Nüvi 200 and 250 models are equipped with a new generation of touch screen monitors, measuring 3‘5“ diagonally that can be easily viewed in direct sunlight. Their stylish design is underscored by compact dimensions, allowing the device easily fit in a jacket pocket or ladies‘ handbag. Garmin navigation devices are the only ones on the Czech market that are compatible with automotive, hiking, marine and even aviation maps. Thanks to the sufficient battery operating time (4-5 hours), the new Nüvi 200/Nüvi 250 can not only be used for car navigation, but also for leisure activities outside the car.

“Some GPS device users require relatively simple navigational devices. Because they generally don’t use many of the functions provided by previous GPS device lines, Garmin reacted to the demand and came out with the Nüvi 200 & Nüvi 250,“ said Clive Tailor, Product Director for Europe, Garmin International Inc. “We expect this step to enable us to bring navigation systems to a wider group of users—including women, for whom the new Garmin Nüvi is the ideal navigation system,“ added Clive Tailor.

The Nüvi 200 & Nüvi 250 navigation devices also come preloaded with a database of police radars and cameras, frequently measured road segments and restricted speed limits in the Czech Republic, a feature sure to be appreciated by many drivers motorists. The Garmin Lock™ system protects the device from theft by requiring a PIN code. The anticipated price of the Nüvi 200/Nüvi 250 amounts to CZK 7,500/9,500 with VAT and will be specified by the end of April 2007. Both devices will appear on the Czech market in May of this year.
