BEST USES

Comments:

Two main problems with this unit so far are as listed below: 1. Only accurate to within 150 ft. May be at neighbors driveway instead of customers driveway if you aren't careful. 2. Do not download new maps into the 205w as the new maps include maps of Canada which will lock up your unit. Call and talk to an actual tech support person (not the first tier tech) to get proper instructions to avoid frustration and down time.
