I recently bought a refurb unit via Ebay.
I've tried it out a few times riding around locally and on a recent half day ride.
The display is a LOT easier to read than the one on my StreetPilot 2720
Being able to set the relative volume of the MP3 player and the directions is great!
Having the speed limit right next to my speed is handy--I don't have to look at the dash board; don't have to look at the dash board for the time either.
Displaying distance and time to next turn is great!
I'm not sure about the altitude being displayed?
For me it was a worth while step up from my StreetPilot 2720
Since I don't have to look at the speedo any more, I've been wondering if I could remove it and replace it with something useful, like a video display of what is behind me?
I think my permanent mounting place will be on the left side of the shelf instead of the right. On the right side I have to take my hand off the throttle; if it was on the right side I can poke it with my clutch hand.
It will be interesting to try out the wx display during my ride back to Tucson
