  • Summary: Was broken when I got it. I emailed them and said it was broken and they told me to buy the map update from garmin. It didn't even come with a memory card. After buying the update, it still did not work.

User Review

  • Summary: Bought the Nuvi 205 today and decided to test it. Asked it to direct me to the closest Academy Sports and Outdoors store. I knew the closest store was about a mile away, and was sure the Nuvi could find it. Wrong. It could only direct me to Academy stores 12 or more miles away. Next, I tried to get it to direct me to the closest public library. I live in New Braunfels, TX, but the Nuvi only showed libraries in other nearby cities.

Disappointed

Cybersciver, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Garmin Nuvi 205 Satellite Navigation System - Newly Overhauled I needed a satnav for occasional use and was attracted to the Nuvi 205 mainly due to the price and 1 year warrenty. The device was basic as expected, but adequate for my needs, although the fact that I couldn't save addresses was a bit of a nuisance. But the main drawback was it stopped working after being used no more than a dozen times.

Terrible ! impossible to use with a mind of its own.

Mr. D. Wilson "Dave Wilson", Amazon
2 September 2010
  • Summary: The Sat Nav arrived in good time and was well packaged with manuals etc and in superb condition. The Box clearly states that it is a refurbished unit. The problem I have had is the menu and keyboard having a totally random mind of its own. For example it can often take me six attempts to type in a postcode for example AB1 CD2 you type in AB..

Enttäuschung auf dem Feldweg

Scottberlin, Ciao
26 June 2010
  • Summary: Habe mir aufgrund der positiven Berichte im Internet 2008 das Nüvi 2005 gekauft, ... bei Saturn, wo mir das Gerät ebenfalls wärmstens empfohlen wurde. Nach einem zugegeben recht anspruchsvollen Praxistest über 3500 km in 3 Wochen durch Deutschland, Niederlande, Belgien und insbes. Frankreich (Normandie, Bretagne) komme ich nun leider zu einem sehr ernüchternden Ergebnis.
  • Pros: Viele Zusatzfunktionen
  • Cons: Die wichtigste Funktion, die Navigation, ist ungenügend .
