Great GPS for people who need a simple, cheap, and easy to manage system.

Summary: Standard GPS system. You have decent options with this model, but don't expect the world. Altering your route to serve your tastes is finicky, and you have to enter specific addresses rather than general locations. It'll get the job done though if you don't want to spend a lot of money, and it's friendly enough for the not-so-tech-savvy to interface with.
Summary: Garmin nuvi 205W Automotive GPS Receiver Good product and practical works great I love its simplicity and comprehensiveness of an appropriate price, clear display you can browse the images at a percentage of me and my work is very beautiful When I need I will buy without hesitation
Summary: This product is a descent baseline gps product. I also have a Nuvi 265. Compared to Nuvi 265, what I miss in this Nuvi 205 is that it does not have text-to-speech function. So street names will not be pronounced. For example, the 205 says "turn left at second exit" and the nuvi 265 will say "turn left at second exit on Walnut street". Other than that, it is a good GPS, tracking satellites much faster than the 2-year old Nuv 265 I have. It also has a larger screen.
Summary: Pros: High-end features (see above) at an entry-level price Fast startup and satellite lock The speaker is quite loud; I had no trouble hearing it under any circumstances The ability to delete individual Favorites using the "My Data" feature In addition to the above, you get a quality product and intuitive interface, as we’ve come to expect from Garmin Cons:No text-to-speech; you’ll have to step up to the 255 or 255W for that feature The power cord is not integrated into...
Summary: Very easy product to use. Plenty of warning of turns to make with clear and easy instructions. Mounting device does not work well, replace with a better one. GPS is a nice 4.3 inch size. Very satisfied overall.
Summary: love it, it's very helpful. it's a nice model. it sometimes tells you to turn last minute but i love how it tells you how fast your going and what the speed limit is and when it changes. very helpful when traveling out of the area. I love that it tells you the expected arrival time.. it's awesome!
Summary: I really like the user friendly quality of this GPS. It's the first one I have really figured out and used to a great extent in the first trip we used it on, the day after we got it. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that if you are in an unknowwn city and need a hospital, it doesn't have the hospitals in the points of interest. If you know the name of the hospital, or address, it will work great. Everything else I would use on a day to day basis is awesome.
Summary: This is an excellent tool, except that after a while, the voice (that of a female) begins to grate on you. We should hve the choice of using either a male or a female voice to guide us around. Other than that, the product is well worth the price.
Summary: The only thing I didn't like about Garmin's GPS System is the difficulty to upgrade the map from the Garmin Website download. The software can only install with Garmin download software. After, I downloaded the upgrade and shut down my PC, after I could not install the .exe file. I then had to go back to their website and re-download the map again. Once it does upgrade, I would keep the product off my PC. It doesn't appear to link very well with the PC.
