Garmin nuvi 205WT
Advantages: Quick, Easy To Use, Features, Cheap
Disadvantages: Can take a long time to find satellites
I bought this GPS for when I was travelling up north not meet family, I am glad I choose this particular one as it has so many features, it is easy to use, and it is from a reputable brand. I do not use the satellite navigation since purchasing my new smart phone as it has maps built in, so i have it with me all the time.
The Garmin Nuvi 205wt is a nice looking GPS, but looks a bit out dated since it is one of the older ones. This being an older model does not hold back on the features, there is so man and they are very easy to use.
The GPS device can take an SD card, which music, videos, and pictures can be stored on if you would like to listen to these whilst driving, this can also be dangerous as you need to concentrate on the road.
The screen is touch which is good, it is not very sensitive which can sometimes be hard to type on, such as entering location data for your destination. This can get rather frustrating if you are trying to get the address in fast because you are in a hurry. The screen is a large 4.3 inch screen which makes navigation very easy as a quick glance at the screen and you can see easily.
Like I have mentioned above in the screen section above the sat nav has a very large touch screen which makes typing easy with the spaced out letters a numbers.
The sound quality on this sat nav is excellent, it is very loud which can be heard over the radio which is great on long journeys whilst driving, as you do not need to worry about not hearing the instructions. When the sat nav is a full volume it is still very clear.
This sat nav has been subject to a lot of use and has done very well. The screen is still in very good condition and so is its windscreen holder. There is your general wear and tear which is hardly surprising given the length of time that this has been used for.
This sat nav has Bluetooth to connect your phone to so you can make and receive calls while driving, which is a great feature to have. I'm sure you can hook this up to your cars speakers but I am not sure how to do it, and have never done it before, I think the built in speaker is enough, you can plug this into a computer to do map updating, and you can obviously plug this into your cars cigarette lighter socket to charge while driving.
This sat nav comes at a very low price now which is much cheaper than what I paid for it when I first got it, it is truly value for money if you regularly go on long drives which you are unsure of how to get there, or if you have to drive for your work and you are unfamiliar with the location.
I've had this for about 2 years now and throughout that time this sat nav has done me well, it has gotten me where I need to go, and do what I need to do. I am very happy with my purchase and would
Summary: Great for long journeys and unfamiliar locations.
