How are you with directions:
Great w/Directions
Bottom Line:

I got this as a gift for my husband's birthday. We like to get in the car on weekends and drive everywhere and he has wanted a GPS forever. We used it the firt day he opened it and we found our way around. We did use on routes we already knew to see how accurate it was and it was on the dime. We also used it and detoured to other routes and it quickly located an alternate route for us. It also quickly located a food place we wanted to go to on our trip and got us right back on the route. I asked my husband how he liked the gift and he thinks it's great and can't wait to use it on future long trips.

Very good at finding locations where there are lots of confusing streets. Use for geocaching and for navigating in cities where we are not familiar with the roads. Voice commands naming streets are an excellent feature

Nice unit, map update bloated with demo
By Honest AbeVerified Buyer from Oceanside, NY on 7/29/2009
Pros:
Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Large Screen, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Simulated routes
Cons:
2GB download map update, No USB cable
Best Uses:

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The unit comes with just car power cable, suction cup mount and stick-on disk. No USB cable (use your digital camera's cable.)
The online map update process forces you to also download a 2GB PC map program also, which started asking for license keys a month later.
Once you have your map update, you are better off ignoring that demoware, and should instead get the totally free Garmin POI Loader software from Garmin's web site, along with their Firefox web browser add-on that lets you send Google map locations to your GPS unit. The POILoader software works best when you keep your POI collections in subdirectories corresponding to different POI downloads. You also will need to download the full PDF manual for the unit. My 255W manual seems to be identical to the 205W manual, with chapters for features not in my 255W unit.
The unit fits nicely in my pocket, can be used in pedestrian and driving modes, is loud enough, and does not intimidate my wife.
I liked being able to drive to my destination while sitting at home watching TV.
I am reassured that I will find add-ons because I chose a major brand.
