Summary: I decided to buy the Garmin StreetPilot 7500 GPS Vehicle Navigation after I was cheated by the salesperson who swore me that the Audi Q7 I was buying him could have a dealer installed Audi original GPS.

Summary: First off, not for the faint of heart, this is one heck of a GPS unit. Too big for most cars, but one you would love to have. I have a Mistubishi Montero 04 and it fit perfect in the dash, however to veiw movies I had to tilt it making the install look less professional than if I placed it in the...
Owned it for a year and haven't been able to use it

Summary: Garmin makes registering and using their gear unnecessarily complex, with the arcane requirements, difficult to navigate validation, registration, and implementation interfaces, with all the registration codes, keys, and poor to non-existent customer support.
Summary: This is a great GPS navigator system. Especially when it come to navigate without the satellite, it is great. However, some of the base map that comes with this unit is outdated but for the most part it is quick and responsive when you missed a turn or two.
Summary: This GPS is worth every dollar. If you don't have $1000 dollars to spend, invest in Garmin stock (GRMN) and you soon will have. I did. Garmin could produce it for less and greatly improve it by eliminating the cigarette lighter/bracket combination and providing a small power inverter to use the also...
Summary: I have both a Streetpilot III+ (still works like new) and a Streetpilot 2620 which I use now. Both of those products have convinced me to stick with Garmin since neither one has ever given me a minute's trouble!
Summary: I purchased this product as soon as it hit the market. In fact, I impatiently waited as the release date kept getting pushed back. And I forked over 1310.00 for this unit, which was a good deal at the time. I get lost if I'm spun around too quickly.
Summary: I have been using the garmin 7500 (without the dead-reckoning cable attached, with the XM Radio Antenna) since March 2006 and have loved the unit. The screen is large and very easy to read. I've used the unit mounted on a dash-board and sitting in our cup-holders.
Summary: UPDATE: Ours is still working, 9 years later. Left off that it doesn't have a built-in battery. Garmin has become worthless in terms of customer support and map updates. I doubt anyone is actually looking to buy one of these these days, but it still does some things that others don't.
