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.
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
Easy to use and works well, but doesn't know the back roads

Summary: Never having owned or even used a car GPS before, I don't have a point of reference as to how this compares to other units. What I can say is the 205W is very easy to figure out for a newbie and gives good basic directions.
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.
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...
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: 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.
