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: This was the first car navigation system which I bought and I cannot compare it with any other product. However, I was (and still is) very satisfied with the product, specifically understanding how to use it, set up and locating and storing addresses and maps. The screen is large, which makes it easy to read and still concentrate on the raod. The voice instructions are very clear, maps very precise and the product overall is very impressive.
Pros: Easy to use, Clear screen, instructions and selections excellent, maps very reliable .
Cons: With vibration of car the voice sytem got disconnected and went on and off . Assume loose wire some
Excerpt: The Garmin 760 is currently my favourite sat nav!!! It is amazing value for money with a huge host of features including... Pre-loaded European street maps. Pre-installed Cyclops safety camera info Accurate & comprehensive safety camera database from Cyclops. You can download safety camera updates daily to have the most current information available.
Excerpt: Purchased this product 3 months ago. Excellent satnav system, does what it says on the box. The accident black spot camera updates are a breeze to load. The on-board aerial incorporated within the unit is outstanding, even in those with the special thermic window screens, if there should be any difficulties then there is a connection for an external aerial to be fitted.
Pros: Slim, A breeze to use, Good battery .
Cons: Audio output when in car not loud, even on maximum setting .
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.
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...
Excerpt: I've owned my NUVI 760 for 2 months. It's a great product. Accurate mapping together with a clear wide screen display. I've had the unit hard wired to my car along with the TMC traffic info facility which was wired up to my car's aerial. A wire aerial stuck to the windscreen on suckers looks a bit tacky to me! I'm surprised that GArmin don't offer this as an option.
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.
