    Was set to buy a 200W but I saw a newer model, the 205W was out, and it seemed to have newer features.

    On a budget though, anyone any experience of these two and is the 205W worth the extra?

    First Satnav, so I dont think I need anything more than USEFUL A to B kind of features. That said, if the 205Ws new stuff is useful, it might tip my buying decision towards that.

    Thanks for any replies :thumbsup:

    It is unlikly that anyone will have the 200 and the 205; so comparison is difficult. Just decide on the features available. Whichever one you get, make sure it has the 2009 maps within.

    Ok thanks.
    The 205 has Photo Navigation which seems quite good.
    The lifetime Traffic Updates seem good too.

    Locations direct from Google Panoramio seems teh dealbreaking feature.
    Anyone got experience of how useful this is?


    Ta. :)
