Warning
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous situations could
result in an accident or collision resulting in death or serious injury.
When installing the unit in a vehicle, place the unit securely so that it does not
interfere with vehicle operating controls or obstruct the driver’s view of the
road (see diagram).
Do not mount
where driver’s
field of vision is
blocked.
Do not place
unsecured on
the vehicle
dash.
Do not mount in front of an airbag field
of deployment.
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.
Do not enter destinations, change settings, or access any functions requiring
prolonged use of the unit’s controls while driving. Pull over in a safe and legal
manner before attempting such operations.
The unit contains a non-user-replaceable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
The battery may present a risk of fire or chemical burn if mistreated.
• Do not remove from the unit, heat unit above 158°F (70°C), or incinerate.
• Dispose of unit properly. Contact your local waste disposal department for
information on properly disposing of lithium-ion batteries.
When navigating, carefully compare information displayed on the unit to all
available navigation sources, including information from street signs, visual
sightings, and maps. For safety, always resolve any discrepancies or questions
before continuing navigation.

Caution
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.
Important Information
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. This is particularly true outside the United States, where complete and
accurate digital data is either not available or prohibitively expensive.

APPENDIX
Caring for Your StreetPilot 2720
The StreetPilot 2720 is constructed of high quality materials and
does not require user maintenance other than cleaning.
Cleaning the Unit
Clean the unit’s outer casing (except for the touch screen) using
a cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution and then wipe
dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage
plastic components.
Cleaning the Touch Screen
The touch screen is intended primarily to be operated with a
finger. Though a PDA stylus can also be used to operate the
touch screen, never attempt this while operating a vehicle.
Never use a hard or sharp object to operate the touch screen or
damage may result. Clean the touch screen using a soft, clean,
lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner
if needed. If these are used, apply the liquid to the cloth and then
gently wipe the touch screen.

Protecting Your StreetPilot 2720
• 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.
• Do not leave your unit in plain sight when you leave your
vehicle. Take your unit with you or remove it from view to
avoid theft.
• Do not store alkaline batteries in the remote control for
extended periods. In order to reduce the chance for battery
leakage in the battery compartment, remove the batteries
when storing the remote control for more than six months.
Updating the Software and Map Data
If you register your unit, you will receive notification of software
and map updates. Software updates for your 2720 are located at
http://www.garmin.com/products/sp2720. Select Updates and
Downloads. Check http://www.garmin.com/unlock/update.jsp to
see if an update for your map software is available. See page 17
for instructions on how to find your current software version.

APPENDIX
FCC Compliance
The unit complies with Part 15 of the FCC interference limits for
Class B digital devices FOR HOME OR OFFICE USE. These
limits are designed to provide more reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation, and are more
stringent than “outdoor” requirements.
Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one of the following measures:
26
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The unit does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs
should only be made by an authorized Garmin service center.
Unauthorized repairs or modifications could result in permanent
damage to the equipment, and void your warranty and your
authority to operated this device under Part 15 regulations.
