Video Review: Garmin Nuvi 205w

February 24, 2009


Garmin is a very popular brand among the GPS user community. The “W” version of the Nuvi 205 stands for “Widescreen”. This is very useful when it comes to navigation as the screen is larger and glancing it would be easier on the eye as well. 

There are already lots of review available on the internet like here, here and here. What I have done is a video review whereby I did a routing simulation somewhere near Jalan Conlay to KLCC.

This unit is available at our online store at RM999

  1. Garmin nuevi 760 4.3-Inch Widescreen
    I’m very happy with this GPS. I previously had an older Magellan and it was awful- it got to the point it wouldn’t even turn on. SO we decided to switch to Garmin, and this Nuvi is quite good actually. I like the Text to speech option, however the voice is VERY robotic, and some words I would’ve hoped for better pronunciation- and other times it speaks too quickly and I don’t understand it- but it’s better than nothing, and you can turn it off and go with a voice that doesn’t attempt to say road names 🙂

    I like the search options, it’s quick to load, and just nice in general. I also like that you can download random “treats” from the Garmin site, such as images to replace your arrow and seasonal voices. fun!

  2. Garmin Nuvi 265WT
    Garmin’s nüvi 265WT improves upon its 200-series predecessors by adding free real-time traffic updates from Navteq (for the life of the device) as well as Bluetooth connectivity to your cell phone. Other significant improvements in the 2×5 series include a predictive technology that provides faster satellite lock, a redesigned screen with more information, terrain maps, and an exciting new photo navigation feature. The 265WT provides complete maps for North America and the handy Text-to-Speech feature, so you get turn-by-turn spoken directions with the real names of streets (e.g. “turn left in 50 feet at Nebraska Way”, rather than merely “turn left in 50 feet”).

  3. What a confusing video. You can’t understand the directions because there is music/talking in the background. What is the purpose of using the stylus while you’re driving? (seems dangerous). How about showing auto point to point which is how most people will use it.
