Garmin 2720 Review

Ex-Fighter Instructor, pcRUSH.com
24 October 2007
  • 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. the computation speed is phenominal. the voice volume range is excellant on the speaker. The screen is better than the Nuvi 360/660 series. The routing is right on.
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Secure Mounting, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Bulky, No Battery 12V

  • Pros: Able to fill in addresses with software and upload route to unit. Very customizable.Current maps. Great portable bean bag mount.
  • Cons: Did not always choose the way I would have taken but that is to be expected with software. So far has always gotten me where I am going. Fairly bulky unit.

Very well designed, completely happy

Larry Gerndt, Amazon
11 November 2006
  • 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". When you get near Maple street, it doesn't just say "Turn right now", it says "Turn right on Maple Street". This is extremely helpful for a number of reasons: 1.

Functional and affordable GPS

Art Vandelay, Amazon
6 September 2006
  • 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. It costs what a mid-level unit costs, but it is quite an advanced system. The screen is approximately four inches by three inches and automatically adjusts its brightness depending on how bright your surroundings are.

Better than having a spouse give directions!

Switchwitch "switchwitch", Amazon
31 August 2006
  • 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. We're still learning all the features, but it will be in the car with us everywhere we go from now on, even if we know exactly where we're going.
