Summary: We originally bought this GPS because my husband was planning on going over the road in his trucking career. Change of plans, he decided not to go OTR so we kept this for our car. It's a great GPS, it's very big though. And, like any GPS.. it gives you some goofy directions when you could have went a different way and wasted less time. Overall I would recommend this product.
Summary: I bought this unit for our motorhome. Most of the reviews have listed all the features so I will not repeat them, but my two favorites are large screen and the voice naming the streets. This is one great unit. Not for small cars due to huge screen size. I don't think any units made have a larger screen. If you need "big" then this is the unit for you. Because the voice names the streets you can keep your eyes on the road almost all of the time. You won't be disappointed.
Summary: The Street Pilot 7200 is all as advertised. The large screen is easy to see and makes reading the street or highway names very easy. It has proven to be very easy to use and is very accurate. Down loading shape files and other survey data is very easy using the memory card. I have no complaints after my first month of use. I count on it every day for my work and has proven to be a valuble tool.
Summary: I've owned the Garmin 2730 for about three years and I loved it. I happened to notice this one with the larger screen, plus additional features, and it worked with the XM antenna I already had. The suction cup and bean bag mounts were inter-changeable as well. I drive a charter bus, and this is absolutely the best investment I have ever made. I don't have to squint to read the information like I did with the other unit, which I now use in my car which already has XM.
Summary: I looked at many gps systems and found Garmin to probably be the best. I wanted a large screen because I didn't want to have to squint or try and make out where I am going at freeway speeds on a four inch screen. This one is seven inches and that is easy to see. I can push enter my settings or searches or I can use a remote. I can sit back and use the remote to go where I want. Ease of use is there... for locations I can set it to home and push hoome and it goes there.
Summary: This is an excellent Garmin GPS! At last a screen size that is easy to see and read. It might not be for everyone, because of it's large size and weight. I use a suction cup mount[...], very heavy duty, and it holds the 7200 up with ease. I highly recommend buying the suction cup mount so you don't have to "stick the GPS to your dash". I love the mp3 player built in, it holds about 150 mp3s.
Summary: I have a Garmin 260 which is great But this Garmin 7200 is " The Bomb " Great Visuals from all points in the Tacoma and the MP3 FM Transmitter is the best I have ever experienced with NO Station Drops (88.1FM) or static which I have experienced with other transmit devices. The only problem is if you have a Tacoma the Bean Bag mount makes the unit too tall for the windshield but so far the stick on mount works fine and Garmin has assured me that they have not had any...
Summary: I bought the Garmin 7200 for the big 7" screen to use in our motor home. I did a lot of searching and reading forums before deciding on this one. The text to speech is the greatest as it tells me to move to the right lane more than enough advance of the exit or turn, very important driving a motor home or any vehicle for that matter. If I make a wrong turn it directs me right back to the my route.
Summary: I have been using a Garmin GPS III for 9 years now and find the screen to small to see both in the car and in the RV. We have used a computer with map software in the RV, but found the screen hard to see in the bright sun. I wanted a new GPS with a BIG screen and the ability to see it in the daylight, and simple enough the wife can operate it as we travel.
The Garmin STP 7200 meets all those reqirement, although it is a bit large when used in our car.
Summary: I have owned many GPS'es over the last 15 years or so. I have used the Garmin 7200 every day for two years now. It is absolutly exceptional. No complaints of any kind.
And the screen is actually large enough to see and to be able to read it.
At the price these are selling for now they are an absolute steal. I would recommend buying one now while they are still available. I just ordered a second Garmin 7200 just to keep as a spare for when this one finally does die.
