User Questions:

Jay: Hi, great site! Thanks for hosting! I wondered if you could tell me if there is somewhere to download or purchace various english voice updates? I have a garmin 200w and it only comes with 2 variations on the english setting, British and American.

Mary: I've just bought a garmin nuvi 250, it has pre-loaded safty camera alerts, do I still have to buy the years subscription or download the trial. thank you

Paul: After reading your review on the Garmin nuvi 200, I decided to purchase one. Excellent sat nav, however even after subscribing to the free safety camera subscription, there are some fixed cameras (gatsos, that have been around a long time)in my area, that are not located on the mapping? Would you know the reason for this? and how can I correct it.
