Review: Garmin StreetPilot 2720


Craig Ellison says he likes it at PC Magazine:

With its extraordinarily comprehensive feature set and a list price of $1,099, the new StreetPilot 2720 assumes the top spot among Garmin’s GPS automotive offerings in more ways than one. Not only is it the top of Garmin’s line, but we are awarding it our Editors’ Choice for high-end in-car GPS navigation systems as well. We still think the Lowrance iWAY 500c is the best product in the midrange price category, with the TomTom GO 300 close on its heels (a review of this product is coming soon). The Garmin 2720, however, has even more configuration and setting options, an impressive text-to-speech ability (not found in the other two products), and add-on options that raise the bar (and the price).

Whew! The price is on the steep side, but check the rest of the article for all the features and a slide show. It comes with one of those Garmin “weighted beanbag,” er, portable friction mounts with which I’m not familiar. Hopefully, it really doesn’t jump on bumps or slide around while driving.
