Summary: It's a really good GPS when it worked. It's a pain to go through the interface to type out the city and state. One day it just stopped working. It said that there were battery problems. It turns on for about five seconds and then just goes dead. I'm glad this didn't happen while I was actually going somewhere. I contacted customer support through their website and never heard back.
Summary: Its a good gps with a few annoyances. Nice wide screen text to speech easy to use gps The worst problem is that if you buy it used, usually you only get a mini usb charger if one at all. The problem with this is that the gps has 2 charge ports, the mini usb and the oem one built for the traffic receiver (of which can be plugged into the oem holder that in turns has a jack that docks to the gps when you plug the gps holder).
Summary: I received my first Garmin nüvi 760 as a Christmas present a couple years ago. At first I was very impressed by the gorgeous display and all the neat features, but I soon noticed that the route suggestions were highly inaccurate, no matter how I configured the navigation settings. More than once it tried to guide me onto a gravel drive called "Jenkins Road" that deadended at the railroad tracks.
"Poor accuracy,poor speech,bad direction change warning"
26 March 2009
Pros: POI very good. Bright screen. Good address entry.
Cons: Bad speech. Bad speaker.Unreliable accuracy.Funky routing.Hard to see proper lanes on maps Not nearly enough warning on lane changes or upcoming info.Would very much like to have seen (heard) a beep or chime when lane change or merge were coming up.
Summary: I have been using my 760 for about 3 months. It has a great screen, the fm transceiver is good Bluetooth works well with my iPhone 3G. What does let the unit down is the Sensis maps. They are often wrong and I have had quite a number of bad directions. I also have a Mio GPS which does not use Sensis maps and I have never had bad directions from it. This leads me to probably selling the unit and buying a new widescreen Mio.
Pros: Great Screen, Bluetooth works with iPhone 3G, FM transceiver
Cons: The Sensis maps are poor (not a good result for a GPS). Not enough customisation available through settings.
Summary: I bought the 760 rather than the 750 precisely for its Bluetooth capability. The product blurb states "you can match your nüvi to any bluetooth-capable phone." Untrue! As per Garmin's website, it does not pair with a Treo 755p. No reason (or apology) given. I am extremely disappointed in both Amazon and Garmin.
