Garmin GPS Nuvi 205 v Quest

Which one is better? I can pick up either one used for under 80 bucks but I haven't a clue to which one is the better unit.

Thanks for any help!

Don't have too...unlike you I got an education and turned that into a very good career. Still I'm sure you make enough 'servicing' your 'clients' inside the men's room at the local Shell station to pay for your meth habit.

IMHO
Nuvi 205, hands down, is the best low priced GPS. I have done the research and comparisions.
I mean, for what I use it for....205 is great

Quest, bulky, discontinued.

205, small, current.

both have small storage, but Quest holds far less than the Nuvi

Thanks! I think I'll pick it up then, I figure for 75 bucks and it's supposed to be NIB I can't go wrong.
