Automotive Gps Units

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking at purchasing a Gps for my car. Does anyone have any info on the good units and the not so good units? The ones I was looking at was the Lowrance Iway 500c and the Garmin Street pilot 2720. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

We have been running the Garmin 2610s and 2620 in our trucks for the last 3 years and now I don't know what I would do without them.

Updating maps is simple and hassle free, the unit prompts you every 6 months to update the software which is free from the Garmin website.

I love the availabilty to avoid certian areas when we have our big trailers on, dirt roads, u turns ect.

Our units allow you to enter multiple addresses and then creates a route to hit each one the fastest. We have had three units for 3 years and have had only minor problems. (Calibrations, remote). All in all I am very happy with the Street pilot, I can't even imagine the features the new ones have.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
