Summary: Previously I had a Garmin nuvi 250 which I purchased it from Amazon.com in 2009 and I loved it. Unfortunately, at end of 2010 my car got stolen and the GPS was stolen too. The Garmin Company discontinued nuvi 250, so I have been searching for it everywhere, but I can't find it.
Summary: I purchased this product for my father along with a mount for his motorcycle. It seems to work great while its plugged in charging but as soon as you unplug it, it dies. The battery seems to be faulty and won't hold a charge. Pretty much defeats the purpose of having it on a motorcycle.
Conclusion: "Worse than useless. Sometimes takes hours to locate signals making it completely redundant. Have tried it all over UK and France and had the same problem. Halfords informed that this was normal and Garmin refused to acccept anything was wrong, effectively also admitting that this was normal.
Summary: Bought this product as a Christmas gift for my husband. It was a good price compared to local retailers, and the seller was highly rated. Product arrived packaged well, no shipment damage. On Christmas, my husband tried to use the GPS, and it says there are no maps.
Summary: Garmin has a policy of allowing free updates for 60 days only on this product, but there is nothing on the package to warn of this. So when I figured out that it needed updating, it was past the date. I AM REALLY MAJORLY TICKED OFF AT GARMIN!
Buy a Garmin if you want to get ripped off on map updates

Summary: When I purchased my 250W I was told by the retailer that map updates were free downloads from their website. As soon as I started using the product I found the maps were outdated by at least 3 years, (roads in the area that had been built 2 years hence were not listed - roundabouts that had been...
Summary: when I first received this product, I liked everything about it--the big screen, the loud speaker, and all the features come with it. However, once I turned it on after not using it for a couple weeks, it took a LONG time to get the satellite reception, several hours!!
Summary: I bought this GPS for my second car. For my other car we bought the TomTom. We got a great deal on this model and thought that Garmin had a great name in GPS and decided to take a chance. Bad Choice - I was very surprised at the inaccuracy of the Garmin compared to TomTom.
Conclusion: los 205 , 205w son modelos mas viejos y traen mas memoria interna que este!! tenia un 250w con mapas del proyecto mapear v8.5 y al querer actualizarlo a las ultimas versiones (9.5, 9.6) dice espacio insuficiente hay que borrarle casi todo para que entre o ponerle una tarjeta de memoria pero pierde...
