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
Summary: I really looked a long time before buying this Garmin Nuvi 780. I always get lost in cities and hate driving thru them. Now I can breeze right thru them without any errors. On the other side........ONE time......I went to see the Lava Caves in Klamath Falls OR and thankfully I knew where it was as the Garmin was wrong in its direction. That is the only time this happened for me though. Thought you should know both sides of the coin here.
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 am a directionally challenged person whose family begged me to buy a GPS when they first became available. Not wanting to spend the money, I held off for several months. Finally convinced by my oldest daughter who owned a Garmin and showed me all the additional wonderful things a GPS could do, I bought my own. It turned out to be the best choice I could have made. I bought this item brand new in 2009 and it has been my car companion ever since.
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.

Summary: Had my 760 a few weeks and first observations 1. My screen is really bright and I like it.No problem seeing it even at night. Seems brighter than the 680. 2.The mount seems improved also.Locks the Nuvi on better and has a quick release button.Easy to use. 3.Signal is great! Mine picks in 15-20 seconds after I turn it on.It is between 11-17 feet accuracy. 4.Love to be able to sort routes, That is what I bought it for and it works great so far.
