5 out of 5 eggs 4 MONTHS OF USE 04/20/2010

This review is from: GARMIN 3.5" GPS Navigation

Pros: Used this unit or the 205W widescreen model at Myrtle Beach, SC, Miami, Fl, And for a trip to Dallas, TX. IT WILL GET YOU THERE !! I missed a few turns at times at night in Atlanta and Texas but it recalculated and got me there! I used printed trip maps before the trips to track its progress. The free downloads, vehicles, updates, and voices were easy via Garmins web site/USB cable. If you are comfortable using a PC, you will learn these quickly, I never looked at the owners manual .

Cons: No USB cable included at the cheap price but bought the generic version for 4 dollars shipped. The additional voice comments can be annoying but slightly, I did download the Nightmare voice for free which was amusing. FACTORY SET To find SHORTEST ROUTE, CHANGE IT TO FASTEST ROUTE IMMEDIATELY !! No Home charger, only the car charger, a generic USB cable is required for downloads and PC charging at home.

Other Thoughts: For simple inexpensive navigation worth every penny. We now have four and keep them on around home to play and learn there pecularities. Be sure of your address destination, ZIP CODE is a must to avoid duplicate named addresses in the vicinity of your destination.

Garmin Nuvi 205W 4.3
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs I own the 205W and the 205 01/21/2010

This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 205W 4.3" GPS Navigation with Voice prompts

Pros: I have used a professional model off road at work for five years, it is a GARMIN too! The 205 and 205W are easy to use, never opened the included owners manual.
Loud voice, WIDESCREEN, and easy and interesting downloads via DSL or CABLE net services. CHEAP to PURCHASE computer POWER/USB connector aftermarket. Quality build not flimsy. Fast satellite find, even reasonable inside a buidling. In five vehicles I was able to angle the units for optimum visability.

Cons: No traffic or lane choice ability, but less can be a good thing. I dislike the power connector location, should be on the edge. The 205 and 205W are specifically designed for vehicle use.

Other Thoughts: It took a day or so for the windshield mount to stay strongly put, newness had to wear off. Use the ZOOM + or - feature, it will show you less or more detail as needed, a major reason to buy the WIDESCREEN 205W.

Hanns·G HB-191DPB Black 19
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Durability and price, sharpness of screen and NO DEAD PIXELS after three years of use. RGB and Digital cables.

Cons: Somewhat flimsy mounts

Other Thoughts: I paid very close to 200 dollars a piece for two of these monitors from NEWEGG almost three years ago. I use a 256mb dual monitor INVIDIA graphics card. The monitors and card have run flawlessly for almost three years and I switch between which is the MAIN monitor regularly. ONLY DELL AND SAMSUNG have anything comparable, of course they cost twice the price too.
