view of the road (see diagram).
Always operate the vehicle in a safe manner. Do not become distracted
by the unit while driving, and always be fully aware of all driving
conditions. Minimize the amount of time spent viewing the screen of the
unit while driving and use voice prompts when possible.

PREFACE
This manual uses the term Caution to indicate a potentially hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, may result in minor injury or property damage. It
may also be used without the symbol to alert you to avoid unsafe practices.
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous situations may
result in injury or property damage.
The unit is designed to provide you with route suggestions. It does not
reflect road closures or road conditions, traffic congestion, weather
conditions, or other factors that may affect safety or timing while
driving.
Use the unit only as a navigational aid. Do not attempt to use the unit
for any purpose requiring precise measurement of direction, distance,
location, or topography. This product should not be used to determine
ground proximity for aircraft navigation.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the United
States government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. The government’s system is subject to changes which
could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment,
including the unit. Although the unit is a precision navigation device,
any navigation device can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
The unit has no user-serviceable parts. If you ever have a problem with
your unit, take it to an authorized Garmin dealer for repairs.
The unit is fastened shut with screws. Any attempt to open the case to
change or modify the unit in any way voids your warranty and may
result in permanent damage to the equipment.
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide customers with the most complete and accurate cartography that is available to
us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private data sources, which we identify in product literature and copyright messages
displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some extent. In some countries, complete and accurate map
information is either not available or is prohibitively expensive.

PREFACE
The StreetPilot 7200/7500 is constructed of high quality
materials and does not require user maintenance other
than cleaning.
Clean the touch screen using a soft, clean, lint-free
cloth. Use water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner
if needed. Apply the liquid to the cloth and then gently
wipe the touch screen.
Cleaning the Unit
Protecting Your StreetPilot 7200/7500
Clean the unit’s outer casing using a cloth dampened
with a mild detergent solution and then wipe dry. Avoid
chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic
components.
Caring for the Touch Screen
The touch screen is intended to be operated with a finger.
Never use a hard or sharp object to operate the touch
screen or damage may result. Though a PDA stylus can
also be used to operate the touch screen, never attempt
this while operating a vehicle.
vi
• Do not expose the unit to water or other forms of
moisture; the 7200/7500 is not waterproof.
• Do not store the unit where prolonged exposure to
extreme temperatures can occur (such as in the trunk
of a car), as permanent damage may result.
• To avoid theft, do not leave your StreetPilot in plain
sight when you leave your vehicle.
• Do not store alkaline batteries in the remote control
for extended periods of time. To reduce the chance for
battery leakage in the battery compartment, remove
the batteries when storing the remote control for more
than six months.

LISTENING TO AUDIO OVER THE VEHICLE’S SPEAKERS
The FM transmitter is intended to transmit your
StreetPilot’s audio to your car stereo’s antenna.
Do not adjust your FM settings while you are driving
your vehicle.
When searching for an appropriate FM frequency on
your vehicle’s radio, look for an unused frequency that
has steady, consistent static. If you hear slight noises
and sounds in the background of the static, choose a
different frequency.
Touch Test to play a sample audio output over your
vehicle’s stereo. If the sound is not to your liking, try a
different frequency and touch Test again.
As you travel, you might need to change the frequency
for the FM transmitter. A frequency not used by a
radio station in your area might be used by a station
elsewhere.
34
As you drive, you may notice changes in the
background static even though there is no FM station
using that channel. You may notice this as you drive
through intersections where certain kinds of traffic
lights or other municipal electronic systems are
operating. You might also notice this effect when the
terrain changes, allowing distant stations to be received
by your car stereo that were not received when you
made your initial frequency selection. These and other
sources of electrical interference may make it necessary
to look for another frequency.
The distance between the 12-Volt Adapter, the
StreetPilot, and the vehicle antenna may also affect the
noise level. Vehicles with antennas located far away,
such as a rear-mounted antenna, may experience more
interference from outside noise sources than vehicles
with front mounted antennas.

Your StreetPilot contains two different types of voice
languages: text-to-speech and pre-recorded.
Languages noted with a person’s name and (TTS) are
text-to-speech (TTS) voices: for example, American
English-Jill (TTS) is a text-to-speech voice. The textto-speech voices “read” and “speak” the same words
that are displayed on the StreetPilot. The voices have
an extensive vocabulary, and they pronounce the street
names as you approach turns.
Languages without a person’s name are pre-recorded
voices, which have a limited vocabulary and do not
speak names of locations or streets.
NOTE: If you change the Voice Language, your
