"205w great entry level but we're going to upgrade"3.0 starson by joltedcalif
Pros: easy to operate
Cons: wish it would SPEAK STREET NAME
Summary: We are going to upgrade to probably a 265W because it sometimes announces the turn too soon and there is another street before the correct one and we turn on the wrong street. Of course, we could look at the screen and see the street name, but that isn't the best thing to do in heavy traffic! We also want to have the feature of REAL TIME TRAFFIC which the 265W has free for lifetime. We're not sure if the bluetooth feature is worth it or not. There are so many models of Garmins to chose from it is really confusing---and so many features. The PROS of this 205w is the larger screen is easy to see and its nice to see the little car moving along. The voice is clear. It is easy to program and seems to sense what street name we are typing in quickly. The CONS we already listed. We are going to keep the 205W for at home use and the 265W will be used to travelling/business. Garmin has good tech support via email but their phone support is poor since always a long wait time.
