Angry GARMIN GPS 2720 versus 2730 or even 7200 ???

I dont get the people off GARMIN.
- They made a 2720 with bluetooth and phone calling and receiving function.
- They made a 2730 or even 7200 with XM Radio and MP3 player.

WHY CANT THEY MAKE ONE WITH BOTH: radio, MP3 player, bluetooth and phone calling function ???
I am searching for a ideal GPS for the new K1200GT (wich has no radio)
The BMW NAVIGATOR 3 has bluetooth and calling function both also no MP3 or radio function.
Wich one should i buy ???

Talking

I would go for the 2730, one of the reasons I ride my GT is to get away from the cellphone! If something happens while I'm out for a ride, they can leave a message!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, the one I am looking at is the Garmin 376C with XM Radio, XM Weather, and MP3 capability. No bluetooth. I can use my Motorola HF820 bluetooth speakerphone unit and connect it to my autocom for phone access.

BTW, Autocom has a bluetooth module now and is planning on introducing bluetooth headsets later in the year.

The 2820 has everything you are looking for - XM, MP3 and Bluetooth.

Around where I ride, the cell phone shows mostly "No Service Available."

Canyon carving in the mountains takes that Bluetooth phone option off the plate for me. Besides, Bluetooth isn't stereo - yet - so the lack of quality tunes would kind'a suck.

I cannot function without my tunes.

I vote mp3 and XM for the options.
