If I had a choice I would prefer it on the right since sometimes I place the GPS up against the left side of the dash, but without an MP3 player it isn’t likely you would use the SD card slot all that much anyway, so no big deal.The right side and bottom have no buttons or connectors.
The only other physical difference is that Garmin has finally gotten rid of the “flip up” GPS antenna.
As much as I didn’t like the flip up design, being able to disable the GPS did have some advantages.
Perhaps they will use this on future Nuvi models which include an MP3 player (The Nuvi 200 does not include an MP3 player).
The SD card slot has moved from the right side to the left side.
The only other item is the USB/power connector that has been moved from the right side to the back of the Nuvi 200.
Since there is no MP3 player there is no headphone jack.
A similar website were you can get free Garmin maps is Cloudmade .
Following the same steps (choosing continent, region, country) you will get free maps that can be used as soon as you copy them to your satnav.
Unfortunately Garmin changed the mount slightly in the new Nuvi series.
The mount is still easy to assemble, easy to adjust thanks to the ball and socket joint, compact, and a nice simple design.
