£56 without the traffic on other sites.

Just a basic model,and Garmins are not as good as TomToms.

I don't mean to be picky, but please show me where you can buy a TomTom with live traffic reports for anything like this money.....

I've had both and prefer my Garmin (205W).

What sites please? I'm not bothered about traffic so would like to take advantage of the deal you've found.

If I'd had live traffic avoidance on my sat nav I'd of saved a few hours of hassle by now. Seems a hot price :)
#10
I've been considering getting a satnav for a while but really wanted one that would detect the speed cameras without me having to pay for updates, or without me having to pay a huge amount (over £100) to buy one. As I will only probably use this once or twice a month, for me the features and price are excellent and I have one on order. Many thanks OP!
#11
Excellent, thanks. Was looking for a good value satnav as an xmas pressie and this fits the bill.
#12
I have the widescreen version of this and have been very pleased with it. Garmin is one of the 'big two' satnav brands (TomTom the other) Which one you prefer tends to be mainly a matter of what you've got used to IMO.

However the radio based travel alerts, whilst worth having, are not desperately reliable (applies to all brands) and you never really know whether to fully trust them.

Driving south on the busy M1 last Sunday for example mine kept first warning me of a 20 minute delay ahead then deciding it was only 5 minutes, then showing clear. So it made the decision whether to turn off or not pretty difficult. In the end as we approached the Junction (31S) it had identified, it was in fact clogged right up so we were ready to get off to avoid the jam.

I imagine the paid subscription services work better?
#13
I miss my Garmin. ( my parents bought me a TomTom as when we went on holiday last year our mapping systems were incompatible and we kept loosing each other enroute.)
My hubby is thinking of getting his dad a SatNav for Christmas and to me this is a great offer.

DonDraper lol I think the whole of the M1 was a pain last weekend. I headed north on it and kept getting told of delays. Flaming TomTom didn't want to do as I told it so ended up on the flippin thing for an hour longer than I had planned
#14
Sorry for going off the mark here but can anyone help?
I hve a 4 year old garmin nuvi I know u get one free update which I used on purchase but now after 4 years obviously it needs updating with new road and streets
problem is on garmin site they want £90 to update it this seems way too much to me ?

Yep it's mad that it's cheaper to buy a new satnav with current maps than the cost of the updated maps. A search on Google may offer possibilities (legal and less so) ...
#16
Yes I'm sure you are right as I did upload the speed camera database on it through unsavoury methods lol
does this one have speed camera locations built in ?

I've tried both but personally prefer Garmins. I think both companies produce some excellent models.
#19
I have the 255WT (W = widescreen) which is excellent but the traffic system is totally useless. It often shows spurious jams when the road is clear or shows the road is clear when you've been parked on the M25 for half an hour. Don't pay extra for the traffic system, it's really not worth it.

On the plus side, Garmin customer service is excellent. Mine died on me and I sent it back as they asked. A replacement arrived in about 4 days.

Re updates, don't register your unit when you first buy it as the chances are there will not be any. Well worth waiting a year or so.
#20
I know this unit is a refurbished one but is it worth getting for a couple of quid more:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Garmin-Widescreen-Satellite-Navigation-Overhauled/dp/B0030BOWRI/ref=br_lf_m_1000277773_1_3_ttl?ie=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&s=electronics&pf_rd_p=217086147&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1000277773&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1S59HHDDGEZ9WCREB0SN

It's also got 10% off this week with the Amazon deals of the week code. I don't know if the widescreen is better to have than the traffic function as I'm currently looking to buy myself a sat nav system for the first time. From what I've heard the live traffic functions are of limited help on the TomToms and Garmins but I guess it comes down to personal preference.

Does anyone know if I could upload anything onto the Garmin to get lane guidance technology like the newer TomTom models have on? Or is that a pointless feature too?

We tow a caravan and lane guidance is invaluable.
#22
Never had or used a satnav but thinking that one may be useful for odd trip out we do. If I wanted to use this in the US would I be able to in some way? Thanks
#23
No reviews on amazon site , unusual

With this model (205T) you get a lifetime subscription to Trafficmaster. However when using mine I found that the default traffic setting was set to the rubbish radio traffic info. If you go into the settings you should see the Trafficmaster option available for the traffic service. If you select that I think it is slightly more reliable.
#27
Anyone know where we can map updates for cheap or even free ;)
#28
Hello, I have just received this unit ans inside the package is a lead with 1/8 th inch stereo adaptor on one end and a small plastic sealed square thing on the other. Any idea what this is for and where it plugs into, there is no 1/8 th jack socket on the actual unit.

Thanks.
#29
Amazon doesn't have reviews (as someone said) which is strange, but there are lots on Alatest which gives it a decent score
