Summary: When purchasing this product, I relied on the following statement from the Amazon.com product description page: "Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store." I discovered that the operative phrase was "almost every.
Summary: Especially, if you just couple of blocks out of City limits on your tour, the GPS stops on Poor Satellite Signal.
Pros: This GPS System is good when it comes to showing the route and speaking streat names and de-tours.
Cons: This GPS finds itself lost even after hiting the road, leaving you no where. Most of the time this GPS after switching it On, it stays in Acquiring Satellelite even after you have travelled 1/4th of your route on your own.
Summary: My issue is not that the Garmin Nuvi 750 is a bad unit. It is that it isn't as good as some of the others I own. It is worse than one unit and better than the other. (per the guidelines I can't "compare to competing brands"). Went on a trip with 2 other car loads of people. They both had the 750. (per my recommendation since I found a sale) and during our trip my favorite Non Garmin got us the fastest.
Pros: Interface is fine, but not great. Mapping is OK, but not as good as others. Speech is very clear.
Cons: Routing can be good, but much of the time it is just bad. Voice navigation can be off much of the time. Ex. the arrow will show to turn left, but the voice will state to turn right. Touch screen sensitivity could be better. Features for price just plane stink.
Summary: garmin makes the customer pay for shipping to return the defective product for warranty repairs, then you have to wait 10-14 business days to get it back. i will not buy another product from garmin EVER again, its not a warranty if you have to pay to have it fixed.
Pros: pretty easy to use. it has a large bright screen thats easy to see in sunlight. i use this for work everyday to find clients addresses and for road trips out of town. the mapping software is decent and the updates are good but time consuming to load.
Cons: fm transmitter is a joke, when it does work it will drain the battery within an hour or two and no ac charger included. the battery is my biggest gripe with this product, its pretty much worthless, mine hardly lasted 3 months even with very little battery useage. i bought the ac charger, but the battery wont hold a charge for more than a few minutes anymore and neither the car docking station or usb interface will charge the battery.
