Comments about Garmin nuvi 205W Street GPS - Portable, Affordable, and Wide! New Low Price!:

All GPS units were exhaustively researched prior to purchase as we wanted four for Christmas presents. Garmin was rated most reliable brand; the 205W had best set of characteristics for us (ie. intermittant use, use by young and old people, easy to set-up and work, versatile as having use in car or walking around town, and, the "where am I" feature which gives you the nearest police station, hospital and/or major intersection. We bought four of these and for the money and deal offered by Ritz, it could not be beat.

Easy to use out of the box. Large screen is easy to read. Compact size and long battery life are convenient. The only problem I have encountered is the occasional loss of signal or the failure to acquire a sattelite.

Comments about Garmin nuvi 205W Street GPS - Portable, Affordable, and Wide! New Low Price!:

I borrowed a Nuvi 200W recently from my office for a couple of trips to the Dallas/Fort Worth, and Houston areas. It was GREAT! I got from point A to point B within the cities with less stress than having to read a map while driving. Having been able to borrow it for a few days allowed me the opportunity to get a feel of how a GPS unit works. It impressed me enough that I purchased the Nuvi 205W a few weeks later. Locating satellites with the Nuvi 200W took a bit longer than does with the Nuvi 205W as the 205W has a faster processor.

We use this for travelling as we are avid campers.
It comes in very handy when looking for a campground and even hotels when we are not camping.

Comments about Garmin nuvi 205W Street GPS - Portable, Affordable, and Wide! New Low Price!:

I did a lot of homework looking for a good GPS device that wasn't going to break my bank. I am so pleased with this Garmin. It has everything you need in a GPS device without all the stuff you don't, like a MP3 player.
