Summary: It has only regional capabilities which I kind of guessed. Had hoped it would hold the whole US at one time but it is going to be just fine for use in my hunting vehicle. We have a 2660 so am very familiar and happy with these units.
Summary: Considero questo prodotto della Garmin, seppur superato e non più in produzione , acquistandolo usato e con i cd e i codici di attivazione in ordine un buon acquisto rispetto al rapporto qualità/prezzo.Specie per chi utilizza un Gps per i viaggi in moto o in fuoristada, avendo la possibilità di interfacciare il 2610 con un Pc per l'up e download dei Waypoint e il confronto su mappe tipo ozi o anche Google Hearth.Come sempre dipende dal prezzo di acquisto, visto che sulla...
Summary: It is really outdated and not worth the trouble of figuring out how to make it useful. I read all the information and decided that it was not at all what I expected it to be, so I bought a GPS from india which is great...

Summary: Its a great product. I bought this in 2004, and never had an issue with it. It was a little complicated initially to load maps with the 128MB flash card. But now I use the 512MB CF card, so I dont need to reload the map, everytime I am traveling to a neighboring state :) Also you can create maps that fit the 512MB CF and back it up to your computer. So that next time, its easier to copy the maps back.
Summary: The 2610 has a 3.7" display, measured diagonally (the way all GPS devices are measured now). The 3.3" Garmin/Amazon spec is actually the horizontal screen size. Putting it into perspective, this is actually slightly larger than the iphone4's 3.5" display. So the screen is not as small as it sounds. This is a classic Garmin car GPS, retailed close to $1000 back in the days, and comes with components of that pricing caliber.
Summary: Yeah, I've seen and used multitudes of newer 3D Garmins, TomToms, Android phones, etc. Yeah, their resolution is higher, and their graphics are prettier. And they have the SirfStarIII (which I do envy...) Yes, they have fancy features like speaking street names. You know what? I would trade 10 of these newer Garmin / TomTom receivers for ONE of these 2610/2620 models. That's how good it is to live with.
Summary: Unfortuantely all support is gone from garmin so you betterknow how to work around those limitations. if you need an inexpensive GPS that you can set waypoints in for specific purposes consider it. if not find something more recent.
Summary: This is my second 2610. First one was stolen and then my Garmin 550 too!!! There are features of the 2610 series family that still shine. It has more flexibility and options than the 550. Better tabs. Of course the newer one has a larger touch screen with more definition, but $60 used Vs $650? Easy!
Summary: I owned one of these 2610 units and used it on my motorcycle. It was refurbished and worked well for about 3 years. It began to "freeze" and lost tracking untill I touched a command button on the unit. This was annoying, but not fatal to it's use. I contacted Garmin and they said it would be $100 to get the unit repaired. I found used units for far less on Ebay and decided to purchase a used unit instead of having mine repaired.
