City Navgator VS NT

I think the only difference is that NT has better file compression, allowing you to fit more maps on your unit, but NT is not compatible with all Garmin products. NT is compatible with the 60csx.

 

I think NT is a no-brainer if you have a compatible model. Anybody know anything different?

As far as I know, NT is great with the 60CSx and the Colorado.

 

With the the Vista HCx and Legend HCx, though, it's not quite as clear-cut. I and some other people have experienced definite delays and slow-downs in GPS performance with the NT maps installed, and have seen the problems vanish when we replaced the NT maps with non-NT maps.

 

Not everyone with an HCx sees this problem. But I'm definitely not the only one.

 

See "Vista HCx lag in "Recent finds", is CN NT 2008 the culprit?", where the problem is first described,

and "Lag-free at last!, the non-NT maps fixed the problem :-)", where the problem was solved.

I purchased and use City Navigator NT with my 60CSx and then on my new Colorado. The NT version is easier to configure. With NT you get your data for transfer state by state where the standard City Navigator you get much smaller portions in the state. You therefore will have to load alot more maps for the same area as compared to the NT version. Plus in the NT, the maps are smaller in size (megabytes).
