Rosebudwi..., Ciao
29 December 2011
  • Excerpt: LG KS 360 I must confess that up until about 2 years I would also go for top quality pay and go phone, my last phone had TV etc on it, which was new out at the time, but if I had have used half the services, I would have been living at Boots doing tops up, so when the lovely dog as a pup decided...
  • Pros: This is a perfect entry level sat nav
  • Cons: the battery is not as good holding time

  • Excerpt: I bought this GPS for when I was travelling up north not meet family, I am glad I choose this particular one as it has so many features, it is easy to use, and it is from a reputable brand.

VERY VERY USER FRIENDLY

G, Amazon

  • Summary: I decided to buy a sat nav and having looked and looked, reviewed and reviewed all makes and models I decided on this (half price in sale helped I must admit). Easy to set up, but as others have mentioned DO FULLY CHARGE first and let it find satellites on initial set up then go to Garmin website...

I will never get lost!

  • Summary: Exactly what I needed! My Sat Nav (I call her Crispy)is very professional and doesn't engage me in endless directions like approach from the left or right at the roundabout.Highly recommended. Pity I haven't been able to register this product yet.

  • Summary: Used this on 2 long journeys recently and didn't get lost once, easy to set up and use partic with postcode search, Not so good on place search - I wanted to get to Greenwich Park, one of the Royal Parks, and this was not recognised in the places of interest memory.

Few tips for registering and updating

J. Hayes, Amazon
5 December 2010
  • Summary: Seems a lot of people have had problems registering, updating and claiming their free map. I thought I would give a few tips as I have successfully managed all this. Top tips: You will require a mini USB cable for the device and this is not contained within the box.

Occasionally confused

Grev, Amazon
31 October 2010
  • Summary: *Update 30/5/12: this now appears to be due to the windscreens of Peogeot 307's having some kind of anti UV coating that affects satellite reception. If it's raining then reception often becomes so bad that that the satnav is rendered useless.

Recommended for use only in England and Ireland though

  • Excerpt: I decided to treat myself to this GPS device last year. I had bought my mother a Garmin sat nav for christmas a few years ago and was familiar with the brand. I was beginning to get sick of having to ask her to borrow the GPS everytime I wanted to go some where I was unsure of.

No better than reasonable, sorry

  • Summary: Mine is a refurb unit but although it arrived in a plain box it was nevertheless spotless. My only previous exp. of non-marine GPS units was with Tom Tom's "one" base model which I'd have had if TT's customer support rep had been better.

Garmin Nuvi 205W

Dr. J. Rose, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great product and does exactly what I had hoped for - that is get me to my destination with as little fuss as possible. However, it is not human. It might calculate what it thinks is the quickest route, but local knowledge is better.
