Portable and affordable, nuvi 205 is your personal travel assistant for life on the go. This navigator leads the way with turn-by-turn directions and optional MSN® Direct services to get you there on time and keep you informed. It's packed with millions of destinations and maps for the contiguous U.S. or regional sections of Europe. Like the rest of the compact nüvi 2x5-series, the 205 is priced right and ultra-easy to use.

Navigate With Ease
nuvi 205 comes preloaded with City Navigator NT map data for the contiguous U.S. or one European region or country (click versions tab to view all). Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map redraw rates as you navigate. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. In addition, nüvi 205 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. With HotFix satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.

Take It With You
Like the rest of the nuvi 2x5-series, nuvi 205 sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.

Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nuvi 205 includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download Google Panoramio pictures via our Garmin Connect Photos website and navigate to them. The 205 is compatible with optional enhanced MSN Direct content (subscription and receiver required) and our free Garmin Garage where you can download animated vehicles that show your location on the map. It also comes with Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions.

nuvi 205: Simple navigation at an affordable price.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 205 3.5" Portable GPS Navigator:

We have just moved to a new city so I use this product quite a bit to find my way home. It's really been a lifesaver for me. I love the Go Home button once I am done finding new places. Also, I have seizures so I just now was released by my doctors to drive again so I can't look at where I am and keep my eyes on the road too. Garmin helps me so much because that voice is always telling me where I am and where I am going to turn next. I know what lane I need to be in ahead of time. If it weren't for that Garmin... I would have no independence at all. Thank you so much for a great product. But PLEASE give us a new voice!!!! Thanks, Nina
