Product Details

Garmin Nuvi 205W GPS Navigation System, Model 0100071840

Portable, affordable and wide, nüvi 205W 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. Like the rest of the sleek nüvi 2x5-series, the 205W is priced right and ultra-easy to use.

Features:

  • See More
    With nüvi 205W's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read — from any direction.
  • Navigate With Ease
    nüvi 205W comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT map data for the contiguous U.S. 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 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, nüvi 205W 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 nüvi 2x5-series, nüvi 205W 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. nüvi 205W 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 205W 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.

      I am finally independent at age 70 to travel any place I want to go without fear of getting lost. I just returned from a trip to Wallingford, VT and didn't have any problems. What a comfort to have. It is like having a friend tell you the best routes to take and when to turn. I love it!

        This is one great little unit, it's simple to set up and directions are accurate. It's compact with a wide screen that's really easy to see. Sometimes it takes a little too long to acquire the satellite, but I'm willing to live with that as long as it give me the fastest routes.
