The nüvi 205 is both portable and affordable, so it can go from your car into your bag or briefcase. This navigator gives you voice-guided turn by turn navigation to get you to where you want to go. Like the rest of the nüvi 2x5 series, this one is priced right and very easy to use.

To get to where you want to go you just touch the colour screen and enter your destination. The 205 features maps in both two and three dimensions, that smoothly redraw as you navigate.

In addition, nüvi 205 accepts ­custom points of interest (POI), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set ­proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POI.

Another brilliant feature of the 205 is photo navigation. This feature allows you to download Google Panoramio pictures via Garmin’s Connect Photos website and navigate to them.

PROS
It has photo navigation so you to download Google Panoramio pictures via Garmin???s Connect Photos website and navigate to them.
