Garmin StreetPilot 2720 GPS Review
c|net has reviewed the Garmin StreetPilot 2720. The 2720 features preloaded maps and tons of accessories. Text to speech software also allows the GPS navigation system to alert you to turns by speaking the full street name rather than just saying “turn left in one thousand feet”. A 3.8 inch TFT display controls the unit with a POI database of six million. You can also optionally include real time traffic information with a $200 FM receiver and traffic subscription service.
C|net didn’t care for the price and that the traffic information is only available in limited cities. They liked the loads of features but didn’t highlight any specific qualities they really liked.
There’s a lot to like about the Garmin StreetPilot 2720, but given the price, it may appeal only to those who spend a lot of time on the road and want a sophisticated, high-end navigation device. Still, in this ever-growing field of GPS, it’ll face stiff competition from the likes of the TomTom Go 700 and the Magellan RoadMate 760
