Absolute waste of money and a big disappointment. It appears Everything that could go wrong with this system has gone wrong, the on off button broke, system shut down completely, cradle broke,charger refused to work even after fuse change, now finally the internal speaker has broke and i have been told its beyond repair. The customers services mananger further added insult to injury by stating that my formal letter of complaint was copied from "somehere", insinuating i was unable to write a... (read more)

You get what you pay for. Reading the manual helps overcome minor setup irritations and using a bit of common sense, RAC 200 GPS gets you from A to B. (read more)

Picks up speed cameras that are on other roads other than the road you are travelling on and can be distracting.

Bought an RAC 200 GPS July 2008, discovered the map is dated December 2006 (so maps created during 2006) and told I will have to pay £30 +vat for updated maps (from 2007 - so may be dated dec 2007).
Because I travel around quite a bit I finally bit the bullet & thought I'd buy a satnav rather than rely on printing out close-up maps & directions off the internet. What a waste of money. So far (2 weeks), I've discovered 6 postcodes that cannot be found. Interestingly, the RAC internet route... (read more)

The RAC 200 sat nav is a cheap but well made sat nav. It has some nice features, like a very good search system, with full post code search and street name search, but also has fuzzy search, fuzzy search acts a little like a Internet search engine. Its easy to use, which is good as the manual is not very good at all, having said that, full instructions are on the cd. Despite it having a entry level size screen, the quality is just as good as some sat navs that are more than twice the price.... (read more)

My first RAC200 sat nav was returned in 2 days to the shop. It didnt pick up any sattelites. It may have been a returned satnav as it had already been used! And had all sorts of info on it that was not mine.
However, I must say that my NEW RAC200 has been picking up 5 sat's, picks its signal up again when lost on it's own and is accurate to 25 metres.
This information is a mixed bag but in general so far I am pleased with my new toy. (read more)

Before I purchased the RAC 200 I borrowed one, it's been great, I have used it several times in just over a week, have navigated around 200 miles. It has not let me down once.
If you want a sat nav that gets you from A-B or even A-B-C-D etc then this is the one, OK you can't have a bad impression of a celeb giving you directions, or play your MP3's on it or connect it via bluetooth. But you can find your way via address, full UK postcode, or point on map.
It has preloaded speed cameras on, I... (read more)

Overall opinion... I thought it was poor. I'm hoping I can get a refund as its not as great as the box makes it out to be! I'm getting a Tom Tom as my dad has one and this has all the information on it which is missing on this one. Its also supposed to pinpoint you to the nearest 3m, it shows me as being 100 yards (2 streets away) when at home and no..theres nothing to hinder the signal, I'm on top of an open hill. (read more)

I borrowed this unit from my father in law for a few days, and it kept locking up and crashing. However, reloading the memory card (SD 256MB) from the CD (supplied in the box) cleared all the problems, and it has worked fine ever since. (read more)

My RAC 200 GPS worked on one journey. Within 2 hours the unit froze, no amount of resetting would shift it. What a waste of time and money! (read more)

This satnav is great, not had it long but is very easy to use. If you do have any problems with it there is a helpline number on the back of the unit. What more could you ask for? (read more)
