Excellent non-reflective touch screen. Easy-to-use intuitive interface. Simple enough to use for a novice, but configurable for the GPS enthusiast. Excellent text-to-speech conversion.

Some advanced options are buried in the menu system. User-configurable data fields reduce area available for map display.

It's hard to find fault with the 2720; an impressive screen, live traffic alerts (optional) and text-to-speech, among many other things, make this a compelling product.

Garmin StreetPilot 2720


This model has been discontinuded. It was selling for $999.00 when I purchased it about 3 yrs ago. Look for newer models but don't spend over $300.

Works everywhere I go.Longest trip was NJ to FLA. Tells u what time u will arrive at your destination.Has a compass and speedometer

Power cord in back of unit can disconnect easily because it slides in and out for a connection. Programing can be a pain. U need a flat surface on dash to mount unit

Jill is the name of the voice on the streetpilot. I swear she sighs when I turn the wrong way and she has to recalculate. Otherwise, excellent unit. Menus are easy to navigate through, graphics are great and easy to read. I love that it pronounces the...

I saw a demo for this and fell in love with the features and the price. I haven't seen many GPS systems that offer a remote control. It's user friendly.

Good display (good in sunlight to a certain degree); Good audio announcing; Quick recalculating course

I wish this model had battery option; Some Points of Interest (POIs) are outdated even after updates

Product Specifications

The StreetPilot 2720 is a premium GPS automotive navigator that offers text-to-speech and traffic interface capabilities. In addition to the turn-by-turn voice prompted navigation available in earlier StreetPilot models, the 2720's text-to-speech functionality allows the unit to audibly announce the name of upcoming streets and points of interest (POIs), letting drivers keep their eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. For drivers in congested metropolitan areas, Garmin is offering the GTM 10, an optional FM RDS-TMC traffic receiver that receives digital information (where available) on traffic, road construction, and weather-related tie-ups. The GTM 10 receives data from selected FM broadcast stations in select cities throughout the United States and Europe. This optional feature lets drivers see congested areas via a color-coded map. When connected to the GTM 10, the StreetPilot 2720 uses this data to automatically calculate and suggest alternative routes based on the traffic information. The StreetPilot 2720 also boasts a new WQVGA, color, automotive-grade, sunlight-readable, touchscreen display that automatically adjusts the unit's backlight for optimum viewing in any amount of light. Drivers can view the map in a three-dimensional perspective, or a top-down track-up or north-up view. The StreetPilot 2720 comes preprogrammed with City Navigator North America v7 NT maps - containing detailed road maps throughout the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million POIs - including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin has also added the ability for customers to augment the pre-loaded maps with custom POIs from industry-standard CSV files, such as school zones and safety cameras. In addition, a proximity-alert feature is included to optionally warn the driver of upcoming custom POIs. In addition to point-to-point navigation, the StreetPilot 2720 can calculate the most efficient route between multiple destinations - a real time-saver for realtors, sales forces, and errand-runners. Drivers can also tell the unit to avoid specific areas or road segments when calculating a route.
