Along the top edge of the device is the power/lock slider.
Pushing this slider toward the power icon powers the device on or off.
The feature also provides quick links to the closest hospitals, and police and gas stations.
The unit comes preloaded with seven vehicle icons, with dozens more available for download on Garmin's Web site.
Our destination chosen, we hit the road and found the Garmin's routing of our test trips to be quick and, in most cases, identical to those chosen by the Tom Tom XL 340.
You can still read our original review below, but Top Ten Reviews is no longer updating this product’s information.
The Nuvi 205W is the most basic of Garmin’s wide screen Nuvi 2x5W line but it still features many of the most important features of the rest of the line.
While the 205W doesn't support traffic updates out of the box, it can be upgraded to support lifetime FM traffic updates or subscription-based enhanced MSN direct service with add-on antennas and/or cradles.
In addition to navigation-based features, the Nuvi 205W also features a picture viewer (which displays photos stored on the internal memory or an inserted SD card), a world clock, a calculator, and a unit converter.
However, the Garmin's mount is much bulkier than the Tom Tom's, and less portable.
