Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver
I own a Garmin also so Im pretty familiar with them but I have never traveled out of the United States with one. Im sure you know the principal of a GPS is to locate the satellites that circle the earth. You need a minimum of 3 for the GPS to function correctly. But usually its locked on to more of them. I think you issue maybe more with the maps in your unit then satellites. Here is my suggestion because I dont know what maps your unit covers for you. You need a tech to tell you how much coverage your current maps in your unit will cover and how far in Canada they will go but I think your going to need a new set of maps. Go here www.garmin.com either click the link or copy and paste it in to your web browser. When you get on Garmins site then look at the top of the page to the right it will say My Garmin click on that and set up a account with a user name and password. At that point you can check the maps and the coverage of them or you can contact Garmins Technical support by phone or by email to tell you the coverage you have in your unit now.
I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me a YES for helping you with this question. Thank you.
