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: 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.
Summary: Great for motorcycles since it is waterproof and runs off a flash card instead of an internal hard drive. I have two of these GPS's and am very happy with them. The remote control is the best thing about this since you can control without having to lean forward in your seat. The only downside is that it doesn't have as many features as some of the newer models and it must be plugged in to work which means you can't program routes and use the device unless you have access...
Summary: Ecellent quality, would buy the product again. I have purchased 4 of these units and am still amazed at the quality of the product. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is in the market for a GPS, yes it is q little bulky-but the features are like no other.
Summary: I was looking for a waterproof, high quality GPS that would work in my car and on my motorcycle. Information I obtained from a motorcycle web site highly recommended the 2610 model even though it was a discontinued / non-current model. I found a reconditioned unit on Ebay, for less than 1/2 the price of the "current" model. There are of course features that seem dated or aren't "state of the art", but I haven't found anything I can't live with.
Summary: I had previously owned a Magellan GPS which worked when it wanted to, and after the one year warranty, like clockwork it totally stopped working. So I have heard many positive comments about the Garmin StreetPilot and decided to invest in this item... with remote. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this product. I love the remote which is so easy to use, simple and straightforward.
Summary: I wanted a gps, did not want to pay the price of a new one, so far, so good, a little disappointed the item is a discontiuned item in the garmin line of gps. But a good one to learn to opperate and use.
Summary: I really like the Garmin Streetpilot 2610 GPS that I purchased on EBAY. It does everything that I purchased it for and more. A friend suggested that I look on EBAY for this product, as he had just bought the same one and really likes it. The only thing that I didn't care for is that Garmin StreetPilot 2610 came with only a 128mb ScanDisc CompactFlash memory cartridge.
Summary: I wanted a GPS that was suitable for both motorcycle and auto use. The 2610 contained all the right features and due to being a discontinued was in my price range. I wound up buying three separate units and am enjoying their use. I find them them largely intuitive to use. The addition of a sun shield is a requirement for motorcycle use and occasionally the sun will trick the remote sensor and change settings. I understand that some have taped over the remote sensor.
Summary: I purchased the factory refurbished 2610 with full waranty and couldn't be happier. It may not have all the bells and whisles the newer models do, but it's a very dependable work horse, easy to use. I also have a 2720 and in many ways the 2610 is easier to use. It also picks up the satalites much quicker than my 2720. This is my second 2610 and it's like finding an old friend.
