Worked fine until a few days ago

M. Still "Moonshine", Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this for my wife for Christmas of 2009. We were very pleased with it until a few days ago when my wife said it no longer showed any roads. I checked it out and tried to "reset" it according to the instructions and still no go. All I get is a message that says "unable to calculate.

DEAD IN 8 MONTHS - WARRANTY ??? MAYBE ...

Keith Sharp "Keith", Amazon
3 September 2010
  • Summary: Bottom line: You have to pay the freight back to Garmin with an RMA # before they will perform under the warranty. It may take you a couple hours or more to get them to issue the RMA #. First Garmin Nuvi worked well so bot identical one for my wife last January.

Be aware of where you may use this

Chilibob, Amazon

  • Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 205 is great except the software included with it is old. I live in Arizona where there is a lot of growth. The software has got to be at least three years old. If you want to find a place in a newly built area, the Garmin cannot find it.

  • Summary: I used Garmin 205 to drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The GPS insisted to get off I-15 on every exit even in California, which I didn't follow. I upgraded the firmware and had 2010 map. It lacked a road and hotel (Vdara) in Las Vegas.

  • Summary: I've had this for 6 months and 80% of the time, I want to throw it out the window. It has told me to go the wrong way down 1 way streets, tells me to turn right onto a street when I'm on the highway when there isn't even an exit, if my destination is on the left hand side of the rode; it will tell...

  • Excerpt: За такие деньги можно купить и получше.
  • Pros: Приятный голос Хорошо ищет адреса в городе красивый дизайн долгий заряд
  • Cons: Самый большой недостаток, невозможность ввести маленькие города и деревни. Они есть на карте, но в поиске их нет. Даже на последних версиях карт. Это касается и других моделей. Система на них одна.

  • Conclusion: No es muy recomendable, le faltan muchas aplicaciones que tienen los mas grandes
  • Pros: Es un buen tamaño para todos los autos
  • Cons: Funciona con retraso. Especialmente al anunciar los giros. Le falta una conexión directa manos libres con el celular del que conduce.
