Factory-refurbished product: This product is a "white box" product from Garmin, which means it has been refurbished in Garmins factory in Taiwan. It is fully functional and "as-new", with full accessories and warranty.
Why is a product sold as refurbished? The most common reasons why Garmin sell some of their products as "white box" is that products may have been returned to Garmin because the customer changed his/her mind, perhaps the product did not perform as expected, perhaps there was a minor fault with the product, etc. All products returned to Garmin for these reasons are then re-tested and/or repaired (both functionally and cosmetically) and repacked for sale as "white box" goods. This product is just as good as purchasing the product in the original condition - the main difference is that all "white box" products are significantly cheaper.

We highly recommend the Nuvi 205 to users who do not plan to use this unit outside Ireland or the UK. The Nuvi 205 range is extremely user friendly and provides accurate navigation anywhere in UK/Ireland. Includes voice prompts, 3D navigation, speed camera alerts (UK only), GarminLock and much much more - this is an excellent GPS at an amazing price.

Simple, safe, portable and affordable with optional traffic re-routing, the nüvi 205 is your personal travel assistant for life on the go. This simple, safety-minded navigator leads the way with turn-by-turn directions, lifetime traffic avoidance and a unique, advanced safety camera warning system to get you there on time and keep you safe on the road. Packed with up to millions of points of interest (POIs) and maps for the UK and Ireland, the 205 is compact, versatile and easy to use.

Simplicity and safety

nüvi 205 comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT map data for the UK and Ireland. Simply touch the colour screen, key in your destination and nüvi takes you there with turn-by-turn spoken directions, 2-D or 3-D mapping and smooth map redraw rates. Digital elevation maps show shaded contours for an understanding of the surrounding terrain. In addition, nüvi 205 accepts custom points of interest such as traffic blackspots and post offices and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. With HotFix™ satellite prediction, Garmin calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.

’Where Am I?’ gives you details about your location in a flash. Simply tap the car icon for your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, nearest address, contact details for your vehicle rescue service and directions to the closest hospital, police or petrol station.

nüvi 205’s advanced Cyclops safety camera database helps you travel with the confidence you are driving safely, responsibly and legally. As you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile and temporary safety cameras, variable limit or red light speed cameras across Europe, it gives an audible alert, overspeed warning and speed limit information.

nüvi 205 also comes with Garmin Lock™, an inventive anti-theft protection system that uses GPS to lock to a secure location of your choice.

Garmin Nuvi 205
November 3rd 2010 Verified user
I recently received my Garmin Nuvi 205. The unit arrived in good working order and looks as good as new--no scratches, scuffs, or any wear marks. All advertised accessories were included.

The unit is small, which is perfect for packing for travel. The tradeoff is the screen is a bit small for use on the road, but I frequently use smartphone GPS navigation in the United States, and the screen on the Nuvi 205 is as wide as and taller than my smartphone screen. As my cellphone plan does not provide for usage in the UK/Ireland, I wanted a small GPS unit that was easy to pack and that would allow me to avoid renting a unit with my rental car.

Since I haven't yet traveled to the UK/Ireland with this unit, I cannot comment on its functionality; however, I expect the normal Garmin competence from the Nuvi 205. If I had actually used the unit before writing this review, I might have given the Nuvi 205 a fifth star because the service and the condition of the unit certainly justifies an above average rating.
