Portable, affordable and wide, nuvi 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.,
Canada or regional sections of Europe. Like the rest of the sleek nuvi
2x5-series, the 205W is priced right and ultra-easy to use.
With nuvi 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
nuvi 205W comes preloaded with City Navigator NT map data for the contiguous
U.S., Canada or one European region or country (click versions tab to view all).
Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nuvi takes you there
with turn-by-turn voice directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map redraw rates
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,
nuvi 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, nuvi calculates your position faster to get
you there quicker.

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.
