Garmin StreetPilot i2


UPDATE: Most of the several generations old StreetPilot series, including this model, has been discontinued. For a more current recommendation, check out our Auto GPS buyers guide or go straight to our Garmin nuvi comparison chart.

While the monochrome screen of the Garmin StreetPilot i2 will turn some folks off, the reasonable price makes it pretty attractive for those on a budget or for anyone looking at buying their first auto GPS, especially when you consider that it comes with Garmin’s City Select car navigation software ($139.99 MSRP). Step up to the StreetPilot i3 for a color screen.

Amazon has this to say in their Garmin StreetPilot i2 review.

  1. I think this all started with Wal-Mart’s Black Friday online sale dropping the price to $199. Amazon then followed suit. I jumped on the Wal-Mart deal and got two. One for me and a Christmas gift for my parents! I do hope it comes with the version 8 maps, however.

  2. One more thing. According to the i3 (the i2’s color-screen brother) review (, the i3 is very sensitive with the reviewer getting a lock in his house. Could the i-series be using the SiRF chipset?

  3. Garmin StreetPilot i2 is a nice auto GPS system, but I suggest you take your time and explore all the possibilities on the market. You will be surprised of the diversity of auto GPS devices.
