Great device, but not exactly perfect

MW, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this GPS for a few weeks now and for a while debated on whether to keep it or return it. In the end, I have decided that the features I like about it outweigh the negatives, so I will stick with my purchase. Here are the main features I like about it: 1. It has a large 7-inch screen, which is bright and sharp. This screen size is very difficult to find on any model of any brand and for me was the biggest selling feature. 2.

Easy on the eyes...

Bruce E. Munck, Amazon

  • Summary: There were a number of reasons that went into my decision to get the 7200, not the least of which was its size. I had previously decided on the 7500 because of the dead reckoning ability, but that is an option that must be hard-wired to a single vehicle and actually makes no sense on a portable unit. Before I go much farther I would like to clarify something: some reviewers have incorrectly stated that there are no street names displayed on the 7200/7500 units.

Large screen is the main feature of interest

  • Summary: I needed a large screen GPS to mount in my RV. This one currently is the largest and Garmin has been my favorite device for a few years. The remote controller supplied with it also really helps while on the road. The route calculations are accurate and correct for the type of vehicle selected. My testing shows that if I set it to route for a bus it is the correct routing for my RV. Not that pleased with the mounting bracket.

Garmin 7200 Good but not Perfect.

Charles R. Humphrey, Amazon
6 September 2007
  • Summary: `Have used the 7200 Garmin in a motorhome for the past month - with the external antenna (mounted inside near windshield). The GPS reception has been good - lost it momentarily a few times but never crucial or for long. The only major `misdirection' was when traveling Interstate 210 (E) it recommended that I follow the local route Ca Rt. 134 where the two merged and to exit onto Rt. 134 only to have me do a U-turn and return [Garmin said] to Rt.

StreetPilot 7200

Artful Dodger, Amazon
19 July 2007
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Garmin StreetPilot 7200. It does everything I expected. I especially love the big screen. My only kick is that I live in a fast growing area and many of the streets don't show on the GPS. I did not expect roads to show that were one or two years old but I did expect roads older than two years to show. I talked to Garmin and they said their maps are updated at the same time as MapQuest on an annual basis.

minor flaws

Humble Servant, Amazon
17 January 2007
  • Summary: I love this product with the exception of low resolution screen and why on earth is the keyboard abcdefg... instead of qwerty? This is very strange and uncomfortable. This was a blunder by Garmin which I hope will be corrected. The screen size is awesome and the response time is fast except in cloudy weather and downtown around tall buildings. UPDATE: Garmin issued an update with the qwerty keyboard option. AWSOME!

DC power plug blows fuse

artchip, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • Summary: I have the streetpilot 7200 and I like it very much. Talked my girl friend into getting one and found a glich when connecting the 12 vdc power plug. She has a 94' Ford Tarus with the conventional cigarette lighter socket. When inserting the gps 12 vdc plug into her cigarette socket the fuse blows. This was also the case when I used my unit to verify problem. It also will blow the fuse without the gps unit attached.
