Summary: Firstly, please make sure that you realize that this unit is 7 years old and thusly does not have the functionality that you would think it would have. I purchased this by mistake thinking it was a newer model. Upon receiving the item I was immediately disappointed for 2 reasons: 1) I realized that the XM radio feature only worked if you purchased a $200 ( additional ) antenna.
Summary: I bought this unit as a replacement for a nuvi 350 which was an excellent piece of hardware.I wanted the video input feature so I could use it for my screen for my reverse video camera.I am currently on my third unit as the 2 previous ones failed (could not acquire satellites) at inconvenient times in the middle of long trips leaving me to go to AAA for for folding maps to get home with.The unit works well when it works but it seems to have very iffy engineering as far...
Summary: I have always been a Map Guy (Trucker's Atlas and others) but would really like to step into the 21st century one day and get a Garmin or like device for my many "over the road" trips to ALL THE COASTS and every where in-between with out haveing to take out a small loan. I have been reading the reviews of this item (advertised for Trucks) and it's mostly reviews from SUV & car drivers with a few RVs thrown in here & there -- NOT HELPFUL TO ME, A TRUCK DRIVER!
Summary: A 1-star rating is too much for this. I bought the Garmin StreetPilot7200 last year at the high price). It failed after only a few months of use. Garmin has replaced this unit TWICE with other rebuilt pieces of JUNK that have also failed. Their service is horrible, waiting at least 30 minutes (usually longer) on the phone everytime, as well as different stories/solutions by different support personnel. I would never buy another product from this company.
Summary: I researched it for months and knew exactly what I wanted in a GPS, before I purchased the Garmin StreetPilot 7200. It has all of the features I was looking for, a large screen, real time traffic, remote, etc. I'm not going to dwell on all the great features. Every review will tell you about these, and they are great, if entering an address to go to or finding a restaurant or gas station is all you're going to use it for.
