Summary: The display technologies have progressed a little from when this device was made, but I still consider it one of the best mass produced electronic devices. I made my living driving my car literally across the country, and this thing took me everywhere with tremendous success. The speed limit sign of the display is fantastic, it helps me drive a little more like a local as different states seem to do things for different reasons.
Summary: I like the GPS , easy to use and no problem for me so far but it didn't come with car charger so I need to buy a car charger. It's not a problem at all cause it's easy to get one on eBay and it cheap too. So I love the product.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Nuvi 205W GPS, because my friends were tired of letting my borrow there GPS. So it was time to buy my own. Since I liked there GPS so much, I bought the same brand. The Garmin Nuvi 205W is simple to use, and it has all the features I was looking for. I will recomend this product to all my friends.
Summary: Not a tech person, nor someone who had even wanted a GPS, but a move to a new city and a job that involved daily travel to unfamiliar sites made it necessary to get one. Family and friends had told me to check for products by Garmin because they were happy with theirs; I've now been added to that group. I was able to set it up and use it without difficulty and have successfully gotten myself back & forth from a number of appointments. Yeah!
Summary: Great little unit...In the car or hiking, you know where you are...Very easy to use...I'm a Plumber, and use this in my work truck...I am actually going to buy another so I have a back-up...It will even store pictures of the places you go, it will play music too!!!...For a $40 investment thru an e-Bay auction, there is not a better product for the money...I rate it excellent...
Summary: Great. Super easy to use. This was a unit from 2008 so it needed an update for the newer roads when I purchased it. The update is $90.00 but the way I read it is that includes 4 updates per year for the life of the product. Granted I don't know much about them but that seems like a decent deal to me.
Summary: I have one of these installed in my car and recently bought a truck. I was so impressed by the Garmin in my car that I bought an additional one for my truck. I like the way it keeps track of miles driven and the fastest speed you drove whilt travelling. My car, (Camaro), the speedometer does not work so we rely on the Garmin to give us our speed. It even gives you the speed when you reverse. I highly recommend this product to anyone who owns a vehicle.
Summary: The Garmin 205W is very easy to navigate even for the technologically challenged, and it's easy on the check book too. I bought it for my girlfriend who is very directionally challenged and not to crazy about electronic devices that are hard to figure out. When she started using her Garmin it was very easy from the first address we put in. As we played with it more she just got more excited about all the different features the 205W has in it.
Summary: I was driving with my sister and she had one and when I saw the ease at which she was able to find places that she hadn't been before I had to have one. I first used my Garmin in a road trip in November and it was wonderful to be able to keep my eyes on the road in conjested areas rather than to be trying to read road signs. I felt a lot less stressed and a lot safer knowing that "Garmi" was telling me where I needed to be.
Summary: This was recommended by a friend and he was right. It was easy to use, simple and accurate. I will do the same thing, recommend the Garmin Nuvi 205W auto GPS Receiver to all of my friends. One more thing, the price is very reasonable.
