Summary: This little GPS works perfectly and has taken me across the country and through cities I'm unfamiliar with. Very useful and very accurate. I have had a few difficulties with tiny towns it doesn't know or very occasionally it wanting me to turn right into a snow bank! The screen is small but very clear though I mostly just listen to the voice. I get lost incredibly easily (directionally challenged!
Summary: Was interesting. Downloaded Maps tried to update Where i am Keeps telling me i in a Different State. Ended up Driving around to get the Map to Update . unable to figure out how to put in a Address to go to other places Tells Me not Found. Hope the Person i Bought it for has better Luck.
Summary: Have only purchased Garmin GPS products and always get excellent results. While driving in large cities they give excellent directions right down to the correct lane to get to the correct exit. My daughter reciently bought another manufacturer and has not had good results with it. Keep up the great work Garmin.
With our Garmin nuvi 205 GPS we are happier than a hog in a Texas mud hole.

Summary: We needed a second GPS and did not want to pay for a new one. I like the simplicity of use. We had to get used to it after having used another brand, however, I look forward to using it now. It does an excellent job. I have found the On/Off switch somewhat problematic. The one switch has three functions and getting them right with a stiff button is sometimes a problem. Our other GPS is a TomTom.
Summary: i bought this product cause my wife always gets lost. i really like how simple it was to set up i didn't like that you have to enter address number separate then city but it takes a little getting used to overall its a great buy for the price!
Summary: I wanted a small easy to carry GPS system That didn't cost to much and would fit in my shirt pocket. I looked at a lot of Garmin GPS systems and decided to try the Nuvi 205. It seemed to have all the things I was looking for in a GPS system and the hook up semed to be easy enough. In the using this is a very easy system for getting you there and back. The short fall is in the battery it runs out quick it seems when using it a foot.
Summary: Works very well in general, its compact and has good battery life. Disadvantages: - NON qwerty keyboard! - in Seattle downtown, had troubles finding sattelites. - sometimes unclear why it picks specific route, when you already know there is another one better...
