Excerpt: The Garmin StreetPilot 2730 is part of the popular 2000 series of auto navigation systems. The 2730 adds a couple of major new features — an MP3 player and XM satellite radio. With XM radio, you not only get music, but also weather and real-time traffic conditions that overlay maps in major metropolitan areas in the U.S. The StreetPilot 2730 uses this data to automatically calculate and suggest faster alternate routes before traffic starts backing up.
Conclusion: Garmin is a trusted name in GPS and the StreetPilot 2730 lives up to the Garmin name. Lots of great features, easy to use, and a good value. That said, it's a little pricey if you're not going to make use of the XM Nav Traffic, radio, and weather. Oh, what the heck - go for it!
Pros: Price, Some static with the audio through car's speakers
Cons: XM radio, traffic, and weather; MP3, Intuitive user interface, Ability to play the audio over your car's speakers
Excerpt: In addition to the StreetPilot 7200 and 7500 Media Center GPS's that were announced, the Garmin also let news out on the StreetPilot 2730. The StreetPilot 2730 is built on the existing 2700 chassis, which means a smaller screen (compared to the 7" screen on the 7200/7500 - see ). Hey, what can I say, the 2730 takes a whole bunch of the 7200/7500 features and jams it into the 2700 chassis, without the big screen. There you have it, that's what you need to know.
