Andy, May 15, 2009 Good unit. very easy to use and understand for a
beginning GPS user.
Teela, January 20, 2009 We have a higher-end Nuvi (765t) and this one is for our second
car I can barely tell the difference in route calculation and how fast
it gets the signal. Lots of restaurants and other points of interest,
and the cool features of the 7-series. Worth every penny!
TomC, November 22, 2008 I'm a yacht racer for whom Garmin has always been THE name in navigation. So I was
outraged by the poor performance of the nuvi 205w. It took me OFF highways onto
routes I KNEW to be longer, through neighborhoods, with lights and traffic -- AFTER
updating the software online and changing settings as recommended by Tech Support,
who seemed genuinely concerned about the issues. Once I turned onto the better way
to go, it took so long to recalculate, by the time it told me the next turn, I was on it!
Trying to make an exit at the last second, cutting across lanes in DC traffic, this thing
was going to GET ME KILLED. It sent me 16 miles afield to the wrong location for the
largest movie theatre in Northern Virginia. I'd be sitting in front of a building that the
Garmin was telling me was on the next block. A friend and I both couldn't find a bar
because of the wrong location given by our Garmins. On the way there, it put us both on
a dark, windy, narrow, unlit, two-lane road instead of the six-lane, 55-mph highway a
few hundred yards away, and said to turn left WHERE THERE WAS NO LEFT TURN
ALLOWED! The Garmin routinely conflicted with GoogleMaps on my PDA, which always
seemed spot-on. Maybe they need to get a licensing agreement with Google. But this
unit does NOT "deliver the goods"! Mine is back in the box for a refund.
