Product Description

Product Description

Never get lost again! The Garmin Automotive Navigation GPS will point you in the right direction every time by following the turn-by-turn commands and voice prompts. Select maps and transfer data directly to the unit through a USB connection and on to a standard CompactFlash memory card. Features a powerful microprocessor for fast redraw and route calculation; built-in patch antenna with an MCX-type connector for optional external GPS antenna; CompactFlash data card (type I or II) slot for map storage; audio and visual navigation instructions and warnings; 3-5/16Wx1-11/16H" (305x160 pixels) bright, automotive-grade 8-bit, 256-color LCD display with automatic dimming backlight and touch screen; and alphanumeric remote control. Includes 12/24V adapter cable and A/C power adapter. 3-3/16Hx5-19/32Wx2D".


Newly simplified for automotive applications, Garmin's portable StreetPilot 2610 features both a touchscreen and an alphanumeric remote control so you'll always have easy access to automatic route calculations, helpful turn-by-turn directions, and guiding voice prompts. The 2610 offers a color display, built-in maps, and everything you need to download additional map detail. It offers more precise location finding because of its WAAS technology, a feature the original StreetPilot and the StreetPilot III lacked.

All the travel information you need, right on your dash.
With its built-in photo sensor, the StreetPilot 2610's bright display automatically adjusts to outside light conditions. The unit is powered through either its external speaker (which comes with a handy 12/24-volt adapter cable) or its dedicated AC power adapter; both are supplied.

The unit's built-in routable basemap covers North and South America and contains a wealth of practical and nuanced data, including state and country boundaries, lakes, rivers, streams, airports, cities, towns, coastlines, state and interstate highways, local thoroughfares, secondary roads within metro areas, and interstate exit information for services such as gas, food, and lodging.

The 2610 accepts downloadable map detail from Garmin's PC-based MapSource City Navigator DVD-ROM (included), which provides street-level detail, addresses, and listings of nearby restaurants, hotels, ATMs, and other attractions. (This feature requires a CompactFlash card, and a 128 MB CF card is included; you must first downloaded MapSource data in order to find points of interest and addresses.)

The StreetPilot's integrated dash-mounting system fosters easy adjustment and quick release. The unit comes with a built-in patch antenna and an MCX-type connector for attachment to an optional external GPS antenna.

Garmin makes accessories to help you integrate your GPS unit with your life and your priorities. Keep it at the ready while protecting it from knocks and bumps with a carrying case that has space for your hookup cable and remote control. In the car, you'll appreciate the mounting options and clear reception afforded by the magnetic/suction-mount antenna that'll give you a better signal than if you just place your unit on the dash. Using your system in more than one vehicle? Garmin's dashmount is just the ticket, providing one temporary and one permanent adhesive mounting disc so you can move the unit between your cars.

What's in the Box
The StreetPilot 2610, the MapSource City Navigator DVD-ROM (full U.S. plus select Canadian coverage; unlock included), a 128 MB CompactFlash memory card, an integrated dash mount, a portable beanbag mount (friction mount), an external speaker with a 12/24-volt adapter cable, an AC power adapter, a PC/USB interface cable, an alphanumeric remote control, an owner's manual, a quick-reference guide, and a setup guide.

Comparing this GPS device to its predecessor, Garmin Streetpilot III, I feel the Garmin Streetpilot 2610 is far superior.
Drive with confidance, you will never be lost again.

I bought the Garmin 2610 (US version) as an upgrade to my Garmin GPS V. Although I was extremely pleased with the GPS V, there were a number of things that needed improvement - the size of the memory, the monochrome screen, the speed of the processor (both in calculating routes and in refreshing the map display). All of these plus more have been fixed in the 2610.
The Garmin GPS 2610 is designed as an in car navigation system. It is not suitable for other uses such as hiking as it requires either a mains (110V) or 12VDC cigarette lighter power source. The unit accepts map data from the included CDROM based software - access to a PC is essential. THe US version comes with 128Mb memory. I expanded this immediately to 256Mb but 128Mb is still pretty good. I found 256 was enough for most of the NE US in a recent road trip (VA, PA, MD, NY, VT, NH, NJ, ME). Uploading from the computer is reasonable fast (30-45 minutes). It is much faster if a dedicated USB 2.0 reader/writer is usd rather than the connection to the GPS unit directly.
The unit is easy to use - my wife finds it considerably easier than the GPS V to enter addresses and find local points of interest such as restaurants and gas stations. Route calculation is very fast - normally a matter of seconds and screen redraw is also virtually instantaneous when zooming or panning. Unlike the old GPS V, I have yet to see a
lock up or time where the unit doesn't give turn notice quickly enough. The spoken directions are very clear to my pleasant surprise as I thought they were going to be somewhat of a novelty.

I have tried the StreetPilot III and recently the StreetPilot 2610 and the 2610 shines. Here are a few reasons why I like the 2610 off the top of my head...
* Routing is much faster than the III. (When I drift off route, the rerouting is nearly instantaneous.)
* Finding places is much easier (ability to type in the name using the touchscreen or the remote is a delight - no more scrolling through the letters).
* The remote control is a real nice addition
* On-screen display is better (you can see the map through the directions - nice)
* The screen automatically adjusts for ambient light
* The 2610 is smaller than the III, and the antenna is inside the unit (you can add an external antenna easily).
* Works off car 12V and 120V at home; takes Compact Flash so it's cheap to get more storage.
* Contains several languages already, so you can get your directions in German, for instance, if you want; or in US English or British English, for variety.

It was a tough choice between the Garmin Streetpilot 2610 and the Magellan Roadmate 500 but two factors pushed me towards the Garmin: (... has more functionality (2) There seems to be a quality control issue with the Roadmate.
The Garmin Streetpilot is truly a marvel. I no longer worry about getting lost and it has definitely made me more adventurous. The screen size is sufficient for easy viewing and the audio commands are loud enough to be heard over the radio if you got music playing. Ever get stuck in a traffic jam? No problem, do a re-route and go around it. Ever have problems looking for a coffee shop or new places to eat? No problem, pull up a listing of restaurants near your location and head straight there.
The Garmin also comes with some very useful accessories. The remote is a nice option if you are eating and don't want to muddy up the touch screen. The beanbag mount is nice for setting the Garmin on your dash if you don't want to use the permanent mount included. The Mapsource software that comes with the Garmin allows you to enter waypoints which I don't think is an available feature on the Magellan.
Now even though I gave this product 5 stars there are some negatives:
(1) Window XP users - There is a setting in the registry that may need to be set in order for the Mapsource software installation to occur. It was extremely annoying that the fix was not mentioned on the Garmin website and I almost returned the gps because of my frustrations with it. If you do get a 1311 error do one of two things:
a. Make sure the following registry key is set as follows:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon -
AllocateCDRoms = 0 (reboot after and try again)
b. Set the transfer mode for your cd-rom to PIO instead of DMA
2. No carrying case is included. It would be nice to have a case considering how much the gps costs.

Verified Purchase
The Garrmin 2610 is quite decent. A few things can be improved such as remembering recent find/filter results; skipping via points under user guidance, having more points of interest, etc. Overall quite good and GENERALLY accurate.

This unit blows away the Magellan Roadmate 500/700. I have tried them both.

The Magellan has higher resolution LCD and can create routes that have "most use of freeways" and "least use of freeways" in addition to the "fastest time" and "shortest distance" which are the two modes for Garmin 2610.

Ther 2610 has better 1) Construction 2) Accuracy and 3) User Interface and 4) Features (Magellan Roadmate 500 does not even have 10% of the features of Garmin 2610).

First of all the 2610/20 construction is much more solid than Roadmate 500/700. The power connecter for Roadmate is a round jack that can fall off easily. the Garmin has a sliding rugged power connecter that cannot fall-off. What good is a unit if its construction is flimsy and not likey to hold up over time?

The Roadmate will tell me "to take left/right" sometimes a few feet after the road splits. The 2610 never does that. Its algorithm gives voice guidance about 500ft in advance. So you never realize when its too late that you are on the wrong lane for split/ramp/exit.

The user interface of Garmin 2610 just blows away the Roadmate. The roadmate has the "Speak Again" switch hidden at the back of the top of the unit, which is hard to press to while driving. The 2610 has it prominently at the front. With Garmin you can customize display as well what kind of info you wnat displayed (e.g time to next turn dist to next turn). You can change the size and foreground/background colors of text to make it easy to read while driving.
