A useful addition to navigation, but keep your road atlas handy!

Excerpt: Welcome to the new age ==================== Ah, the memories. Long, winding country lanes, the sun setting over the sea. Dad refusing to ask for directions. Mum looking at the map, making constructive suggestions with increasing levels of irritation. Me and my older brother in the back, bored rigid and desperate for a wee. Well, now we have the glory that is satellite navigation.
Excerpt: "I bought a Garmin 760 GPS receiver for my car I had not had a satellite navigation system before this but had been borrowing my brother in laws for when I went on business trips. These are a brilliant devise you just put the postcode, town and other information in as to where you want to go and it will voice guide you there and also show you your route on the screen. It also shows other useful information such as time, how long it is going to take ...
Pros: good battery life and good instruction manual
Cons: sometimes slow software and have to pay for camera feature after 30 days
Excerpt: This product was purchased after the car dealer quoted me £1000 for a built in system. This product caught my eye as it has a touch screen and a very easy to use interface, with things labeled far apart so its hard to 'accidently' choose something with 'large fingers'. This product comes with a computer link up so that new versions of the maps can be downloaded, for a fee, which seems a bit 'iffy' since the price off the product is so big in comparison to the...
Garmin 760 is the absolute best bang for the buck.

Summary: I purchased this new back in 2009 to install in my 2008 Nissan 350Z. It was the perfect size for the little cubby in the center of the dash. Whenever I want to update it or use it on another vehicle, I just push down on the button and it pops out, no problem. For mounting reasons alone, the 760 is better than the newer Garmin GPS units that mount using a clip on the top and bottom of the screen.
Summary: I bought this in 2009 and I had screen issues a few months in. I would turn on the GPS and the screen went black it just didn't boot up but you heard the noise it makes to acknowledge that you are pressing buttons but a blank screen. I had to send it to Garmin because it was still under warranty at that time to repair it. When I got it back it immediately had issues acquiring satellite. I didn't want to send it back because they took their time with it the first time.
works great and is the perfect fit for Suzuki Sport SX4 vehicle!

Summary: Works pretty well. Sometimes the map is off, and may need updating, so make sure you have the latest updates if possible - still not sure how to do that myself, but most of the time the navigation is perfect and I like the feature that I can type in local businesses and restaurants and get a fairly accurate list of local places to go to.
Summary: I like the Garmin Nuvi 760 for my car; it works great. I had to buy a new one because my last Garmin Nuvi 760 stopped working after yrs of use. Ebay was the cheapest way to replace my old Garmin.
The Garmin nuvi 760 is a great gps unit, well worth it.

Summary: Before I get into my complaint, let me say that I really DO like this Garmin product! The 760 does as good as it's maps allow it to do. I love the MP3 player. The screen is plenty big, good color and very readable in sunlight. I've had mine several years and it still holds a good battery charge. I love adding my own POI and routes and I love that it's compatible to MapQuest so I can create a route on MapQuest and download it to my GPS.
