"StreetPilot® gets us through the Scottish
Our StreetPilot was indespensible last summer! We were going
to Scotland, by way of Iceland and England, for a month, with
plans to drive around the highlands on our own, and with pre-paid
reservations for every night. Obviously, we had to be on schedule,
and couldn't afford to get lost! We bought the Street Pilot and
the CD for the UK and programmed the Garmin® before we left.
When in Scotland, we bought Ordinance Survey maps that showed
region by region, every road, building, ruin, mountain and stream.
Between the two we were able to navigate those mostly unmarked
single-track roads, multiple roundabouts, and sheep tracks with
ease! We had a wonderful trip, with our biggest worry-getting
lost in the wild highlands of Scotland-alleviated, thanks to our
Garmin. We were able to find and visit out-of-the-way ruins, circles
of standing stones, and ancient sites way off the regular tourist
We toured from Edinburgh, through Kilberry, the Western Isles
of Mull and Skye, up to Inverness, down through the Cairngorms
to Forfar, (chasing dead relatives ;-) ) Lawrencekirk, Arbroath,
then through Sterling to Glasgow, and finally winging home.

"Weekend biker's StreetPilot"
This is my first Garmin. I can't tell you how much I've used
the StreetPilot. I'm a "weekend biker" and take this
unit everywhere. Those back roads are great to ride on, and how
to get there (and back) is something I never have to worry about
with the StreetPilot! I've "marked" a lot of good places,
found those "out in the boonies" gas stations, and planned
a lot of return trips I could never have remembered! Everyone
that's seen it is so impressed!! I'm moving north soon, and boy,
being able to navigate around a new town with no fear is one less
thing I have to worry about! Thanks Garmin! I'm a customer for
"And StreetPilot makes #4"
This is my fourth Garmin product (the StreetPilot GPS). After
seeing some of the other GPS units my relatives have purchased
and hearing their comments, I think Garmin is in a class all its
own with others following the lead like a dog sled team. I have
had so many good experiences with your products, it would take
volumes to document.
I am a Network Field Engineer for a health company and do a lot
of traveling around, and when we have to cover another engineer's
territory, the StreetPilot is greatyou have peace of mind
knowing that you can get home with no problems. Seeing the street-level
detail is a major plus.
"Trucker always on time with StreetPilot"
I recently purchased a StreetPilot GPS. I can't even begin to
say how happy I am with my investment. I am a trucker contracted
to an expedited freight company. This job requires me to pick
up and deliver time-sensitive freight. The StreetPilot has enabled
me to make a 100 percent on-time delivery record. Paper maps are
great, however, they cannot tell you where you are. The StreetPilot,
on the other hand, shows you exactly where you are and how far
away from your destination you are, as well as how long it will
take you to get there. I recommend that anyone who is in the trucking
industry purchase one. It will save you time and actually generate
more income for you by getting you where you need to be faster
and enabling you to get your next load sooner. It will also cut
your fuel costs because you will spend less time driving around
lost trying to find your destination. To sum it all up, I wouldn't
drive without the StreetPilot.
"Truckin' along with StreetPilot"
As a sailor, photographer, and trucker, I have come to rely on
Garmin GPS products to help me find my way. With my recent purchase
of the StreetPilot GPS, I have found a perfectly suited tool for
my land-based travels. My brother races Admirals Cup-level sailboats
all over the world and I accompany him as often as possible to
enjoy the offshore realm. It is through sailing that we first
became familiar with and relied on GPS to maximize our capabilities.
Your products are head and shoulders above the rest.
A brief bit about trucking and GPS. No red-blooded trucker will
ever admit to being lost. When you travel with a touring company
like I do, you will see about 175 different cities a year. Keeping
up with the 7,500 or so venues is a bit tricky. Paper maps and
word of mouth got us there for years. Four or five years ago,
I began to incorporate GPS into my work. My marine experience
and the simple mapping programs were enough to provide statistical
information and directions to waypoints across the nation. I was
ridiculed by other truckers because we all knew where we were,
but they were finding the time stats interesting and I was verifying
a few speedometers. As the units and software became more sophisticated,
the jibing ceased and the curiosity picked up. Now with the StreetPilot
utilizing the MapSource® software, I don't hear a thing from them,
yet I notice they all line up behind me to guide them into unfamiliar
territory. I have had to loan my GPS 12XL and GPS III® Plus to
other drivers, and they are all now contemplating the purchase
of a StreetPilot.
