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 use the GPS primarily on my motorcycle. So the issues may not apply to auto users. The unit comes with lots of mounts, none of which I use on my motorcycle, they do work well in the car though. I am using a Touratech mount for my motorcycle. The GPS comes up fairly fast, and loads the maps.
Summary: Last Thursday I bought the Garmin 2720 refurbished so basically new. It came with the upgraded Dvd that allows you to create your own waypoints and basically anything else you want and then upload it to the unit.
Summary: I am a real estate appraiser by profession and bought my first GPS system, the StreetPilot 2610, 2-1/2 years ago. I had reached the age where the cones in my eyes were disappearing faster than an Artic glacier.
Summary: Before purchasing a GPS navigation assistant, I read a great many user reviews on a great many models. I felt the Garmin 2720 earned the best feedback and let that decide my purchase. I wasn't disappointed. The unit is easy to program and user-friendly.
Summary: My wife travels to the homes of several new clients every week, so a GPS was the perfect gift for her. After much research, I chose the Garmin 2720 over the Magellan 760. But I didn't know about Garmin Nuvi until after I bought the 2720.
Summary: I have had this device for about 2 months now, have used it for an extensive trip to the east coast and absolutely love it. Terrific screen, very bright and always visible in direct sunlight. Text to voice feature is priceless.
Summary: I really like this unit, it works very well, holds the antenna signal very well, I don't even use an external antenna and it works fabulously. Only complaint is it's not quite as customizeable as I'd like and the POI's are a little lacking in some areas.
Summary: The problem with being an early-adopter with technology is that you have to suffer through some growing pains. Now that the 2720 is out of that stage, it is a very nice and powerful unit. I've owned 5 different hand-held GPS units, and 3 automobile ones.
Summary: I purchased the Streetpilot 2720 several days ago after doing alot of online research about GPS units I could use in my car. My selection process was as follows: Pioneer AVIC-D1 in-dash combination car stereo/dvd navigation unit.
