Summary: Comments about Garmin Streetpilot 2720: I did a lot of research for about a year. The 2720 beats all the Garmin products which mean it beats all the other brands too. The database is excellant, some loss of coverage in new developments but new updates are this month.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Secure Mounting, Simple Controls
Summary: This is my 6th GPS since 1993 and the last 5 were Garmin. This is my first automotive; the others having been for marine applications. I am dumbfounded by the performance and ease of use. You can get more frills on other models, but I don't beleive there is a better navigator out there.
Summary: I wish I could give this gizmo 10 stars! The bean bag mount allows you to switch it from car to car with ease and doesn't mar the dashboard. I live in the NYC metro area and travel as a musician and writer. I have been lost so many times in Brooklyn and Queens, I can't remember.
Summary: We received our StreetPilot about a week before we headed out on vacation in the California mountains so we didn't get much chance to practice using it. I found it easy to use and it worked great even up in the mountains.
Summary: I've had this unit for close to a year now, and I absolutely love it. First and foremost, the audio instructions are superior to most other units. Instead of saying "in .8 miles, turn right", it says "in .8 miles, turn right on Maple Street".
Summary: The Garmin StreetPilot 2720 is the best GPS currently on Amazon for two reasons. First, this GPS is only a year old, and costs half as much as it originally did! Second, you will not sacrifice features by paying less for this GPS.
Summary: It tells you far enough in advance to get ready to turn. Before we had the 2720 we'd either miss our turn, or made quick turns (very dangerous) to get to our destination. It's better than having someone looking at a map and giving you directions while you're driving the car.
Summary: My husband is a courier and his car is his office. Our kids and I wanted to chip in and get him a GPS system for his birthday so I did tremendous research on everything available. After reading 94 reviews from satisfied customers, the Garmin Street Pilot 2720 was what I decided to buy.
Summary: I am currently trying out the Garmin 2720 and the Magellan 6000, both top end units, to see which one I am going to keep. Tough choice ! Both are terrific for routing, have all the advanced features, like text to speech and traffic info option, but neither one is perfect.
