About this product
- DescriptionNever roll down your window to ask for directions again when you have a Garmin nuvi 205W mounted on your dash. Its wide 4.3-inch color screen helps display navigation information clearly, and remains lightweight and portable despite being full-featured. When the Garmin GPS is not hooked up to your car power, its internal battery can last up to 4 hours, so you can get directions even when your car battery dies. The device can read additional maps using data from an inserted SD card, and up to 1,000 locations, favorites, and waypoints can be saved in the solid state internal memory. Avoid highways when necessary, and keep from having to pay tolls with its Route Avoidance feature. The device also guides you through speed limits on major roads in the United States and Europe, so getting speeding tickets is one less worry when driving to new places.

Simple to Use Basic GPS
I was looking for value and really found it in this unit, $22 including shipping. It does not speak street names and have a lot of fancy features. It just says "turn left in 500 feet" or "turn left". It works great for getting you from point A to point B. Based on using it for a couple of months now, it seems to give good routes. The screen is bright and easy to view. The points of interest database is somewhat dated, but I knew that going in. I think I could update for free if I wanted; however, I am just as content to go online with my iPhone to search out some point of interest and then just enter the address into the GPS - no problem. I have had no issues or complaints with this GPS. Perfect for me - very happy for $22!

This model is too outdated for my taste. It takes awhile to find the signal. It is not easy to type on this device. Also the directions are very general and not specific at all. For example it just says "turn left, then turn right." I had a Garmin a few years back that had the 3D display as well as specific street names and highways. Skip this one.

Better than 75% so far.
The fancier ones have been junk so far, and the co's I purchased them from. This inexpensive little Garmin has been dependable so far and if it works for a year, I'll consider myself lucky for a inexpensive investment.

For its purchase price, The Garmin nuvi 205W worked exactly as expected.
This is a good working unit. Response was slower than GPS navigation in my older model HTC android cell phone. Setup and navigation settings are ok, but, are not as user friendly as the Android or IGO. I expect newer Garmin models have changed that slightly. Once you have used it, you are fine. This was standard when manufactured. It has safety theft feature. Can turn off and on automatically if left plugged into lighter outlet. Since its data was accurate when purchased, I did not try and upgrade software. System reset and Satellite location was executed without error.

For the price a very good basic GPS
If I was a professional type driver I would spend more money on something with more features or points of interest, but I just needed a good basic GPS for occasional use, and this is it. My wife's GPS is a 3.5 inch 205, and it's nice that, if her's ever quits working, we have a backup. Like a computer operating system, she doesn't have learn a new way of controlling it. If we lose an accessory, they are readily and cheaply available. Although I can see the 3.5 inch screen just fine, the wider screen 205 has a few extras features that were important to me. For example, when you're looking over a large area of the map, with the 205w you have the choice of having north orientation, or direction of travel. I'm talking about when you're looking at a hundred mile section for example, not street view. Having gotten used to other brands of GPS's that defaulted to north orientation, to only have the direction of travel option for the 205 was disappointing. I like the way the 205 and 205w display the speed when you're in route mode (some other brands don't) but wish it would also display the entire route stats somewhere on the map (total distance, total time) instead of just the distance to the next turn. You can get this basic info by pressing buttons, but you shouldn't need to. I don't like the high cost of the map updates, but at least they're available (unlike a Meier Venturer brand I once had) Accuracy of finding locations seems to be on par with most low end GPS's, and that may not be Garmin's fault. I once had to go to a county office to correct a mistake they had related to one of my moms properties. The satellite picture company had her address off by an entire property. Another county had a printed map of their county that had non existent streets and bridges on it, (streets planned for but never put in) I saw a very expensive GPS owned by a truck driver that gave him the wrong location once, and even Googlemaps and Mapquest still get one location I know of way off. Usually if a GPS can at least get me in the neighborhood I can find it from there if I have to. Even when you don't need the GPS for directions, they're nice to have if you break down and need to tell AAA where you're at (they want to know EXACTLY) like I was recently. My daughter's smartphone could only give us an approx. location, not as accurate as a satellite. Read full review
