No Lifetime maps for my StreetPilot 2720

I'm planning a cross county trip for this summer. From AZ thru New England into Maine.

I was planning on using my 2720 and have discovered that Garmin will sell a new map to me for $79

They will not support the 2720 for maps for life though.

I can find info on new Garmin products that are water proof and that I can buy lifetime maps for.

But, I am interested in finding a used unit--probably a model in between my StreetPilot and the "Zumos"? that have the option of buying lifetime maps.

Looking for suggestions.

Built in MP3, XM radio don't have any value for me. Extras for hiking don't have any value to me.

Dunno?

I can buy a new map; can't buy lifetime maps. My unit has the correct time, but thinks it is the middle of Dec in 09.

How did you find the map version you are on?
I think mine is 2008?

Re: No Lifetime maps for my StreetPilot 2720

I have two GPS's on my bike a 2720 & 7200 garmin I have never updated either maps. Every state you ride into has the newest maps at the welcome center for free. I study paper maps before every trip. If I'm riding into a town I'll look at the google map zoomed in to where I need to go. I also look at maps at lunch at work or food breaks when I'm traveling. I always have a second route planned ahead in case the primary route isn't what I like for whatever reason.

Thanks for the tips Dave.

I have a poor memory for directions to start with.

Having an up to date GPS thingie in front of me would make riding unfamiliar territory less confusing.
