Garmin Nuvi 205w


The Garmin Nuvi 205W is a great gps system that comes with a wide screen and is both portable and affordable. The gps system comes with turn-by-turn directions and come preloaded with maps of the US and Canada. The Garmin Nuvi 205W sports a sleek, slim design that makes it very easy to carry and fits very nicely in your pocket or purse.

You get an option to add MSN Direct services which give you the ability to check the weather, avoid traffic backups, compare local gas prices and much more. Also included is the “Where Am I” feature which helps you find the the closest hospitals, gas stations, police stations as well as the nearest address and intersection.

Why its good

  • Form factor – Well designed and easy to carry
  • Good Routing Engine – The system calculates the best routes for you, better than competitors
  • Garmin WebUpdater – Garmin provides a very easy way to keep the gps system maps up to date
  • Additional features like “Where am I”


  • Weak Speaker

Bottom Line – Who is this best for

The Garmin Nuvi 205W is a great gps system for people who are purchasing their first gps system or buying a gift for someone and just want a solid navigation system that works. The newly redesigned user interface is sleek and easier to use, you cannot go wrong with this gps system.
