The pocket-sized Garmin nüvi 205W gives you turn-by-turn voice directions and a large full-color, touch-sensitive widescreen, so it’s easy to stay on course! The nüvi mounts quickly on your windshield or dash with the included suction cup mount and adhesive dash disk, and pops off with a gentle tug, so you can take it with you. The Li-ion battery lets you use nüvi to navigate on foot for up to 4 hours between charges, so you can let it lead the charge when you’re making sales calls, or out for a day of shopping conquest.

The unit ships with City Navigator NT data for the lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico (no Alaska or Canada detail), and includes more than a million Points of Interest (POI), like gas stations, restaurants, attractions and parks, and shopping. You can also use the Garmin Poi Loader software (free download) to install custom POI like traffic camera locations and school zones, then set proximity alerts to warn you when you’re approaching one. This Garmin also supports an FM traffic receiver (receiver and subscription sold separately) to help you avoid sitting in traffic jams. The Garmin nüvi 205W is a slick entry into the auto GPS market and at an affordable price!

Pros: easy to use, easy settings and controls

Cons: After 4 months the voice prompts fail in the middle of giving turn directions

Overall Review: still gets me where I need to go but its a pain because I have to watch the screen regularly since sometimes there are no voice prompts to turn.

Not that great!!! 5/14/2011 1:27:47 AM

Pros: It was cheap/on-sale when I bought it. Seemed like a nice gift.

Cons: This NEVER chooses the easiest or most efficient route. It chooses routes that are completely out of the way, and sometimes heads in the opposite direction. Even after reprogramming it, still having problems. This one is not trustworthy. I rarely use this but when I do, I find myself still relying on google maps to get places.

Cons: Zilch.

Thanks Newegg!

Pros: good quality, shipped on time, easy to use

Cons: There was no USB cable with the product. If you have to update the new maps from website then you need to buy a USB cable first. I used my blackberry USB cable.
