I haven't yet found a store which has a Garmin 7200 in stock that I can take a look at. I'm not keen on buying high dollar things sight unseen. Circuit City has a 15% restocking fee (apx. $100) if you open the box and return within 14 days if special ordered. Of course you will open the box!!!!! Their price of $829 is the lowest store price I have found, but one shouldn't have to pay $100 to check it out. Anyone know of any L.A. area stores that stock the 7200?
As for the Co-Pilot, it looks interesting and I already have a laptop, a Dell, but does it operate in a touch screen manner like Garmin, and can you do that with a standard laptop?
Thanks

Try Frye's Electronics on the I405 or a local West Marine.

I've owned 6 Garmin GPS units over the past 10 years and cuurently have the 7200 in my coach. It is excellent with an easy user interface and a very visible screen. The live weather and traffic feature is very handy. Around metrpolitan areas, it is very useful to avoid traffic congestion. The combined XM music is nice too.

The little "shelf" area to the lower right of the curved dash, makes a great place to mount the GPS; close to power and signal connections with short -somewhat- concealable cable runs.

The website link and its reviews are very good. Their summary on the 7200 is:

The 7200 version of the StreetPilot will cause you to put all your other versions in a box or sell them on eBay. The routing is as accurate or better than any we have seen, and the features are "extensive." It seems that since the days of the first monochrome StreetPilots, the screens have gotten smaller and smaller -this model certainly reverses that trend. Jack's wife says she can "read it from the back seat."

One of the best values I've seen lately is the Garmin 2700 series (2720?) at Costco for around $400, I recall. It is an upgraded version of my 2610, which I've used in the coach. While the screen is much smaller than the 7200, it is still very functional and visible in the coach.

That is an excellent price, as remanufactured units sell for approximately that price.

I ended up buying a Garmin c550. The 7200 seemed too big to use on the dash in my Jeep Wrangler towd after I looked at one live and in person at Fry's Electronics. I've been really pleased with the c550 so far. Retails for $599., and I bought it at Circuit City for $449.

I kept the 2005 Lowrance 3500C I had on my boat when it sold and am well pleased with it. For only a 5" diagonal screen, the 480X480 resolution is outstanding. Also, Lowrance's MapCreate software is quite complete and versatile.

It also has NauticPath software for use when Noah calls me.

It doesn't have voice-command but I travel with my wife.

Rick:

I recently purchased a TomTom One. It was inexpensive, really easy to use, and sets on the dash of the Coach or my toad. It is not fancy with a lot of gimmicks; however it does the job. The thing I like best is that it is very easy to use.

I have been using a laptop with Delorme Street Atlas software and a portable GPS for 7 years. My current GPS is a Garmin 60 CS. The laptop gives better viewing from the driver's seat than any GPS screen. Prior to that I used a Garmin Street Pilot stand alone GPS

The Delorme software is fairly user friendly. I download and install "draw files" on clearances, Wal Mart's, Flying-J's from the Discovery Owners web site. I have a RAM mount for the 60CS that can be moved to our Jeep when needed.

The Co Pilot works well and is very cost effective if you need RV only mapping and have a laptop. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>Just passing on a deal:

DELORME EARTHMATE GPS LT-20 2008 for $19.99 (after rebates)

This is DeLorme Street Atlas 2008 software plus the USB GPS antenna. NO separate GPS unit required! All for $19.99 after rebates. I bought it just for the software (upgrading from SA 2006).

Grab it quick, I think the deal is good thru Nov 1, 2007. (Link above not guaranteed to be valid after that date.)
