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., Canada or regional sections of Europe. Like the rest of the compact nuvi 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., Canada or one European region or country (click versions tab to view all). Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nuvi takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map updates 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, nuvi 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, nuvi 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 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.

Comments about Garmin Garmin Nuvi 205 Portable GPS Navigator:

I take photos at events and sometimes I didnt know how to get there. I wanted to be able to know directions on the go. So my husband bought this for me and what a gem. I used it the first day I got it. And several times since. I only had it 3 weeeks. If you're thinking of getting a GPS, get this one.
