Summary: Would like to share couples of Cons I experienced in 4 years of use, but overall, Garmin nuvi 780 is a good buy. (Don't know why Amazon says first available date is at 2010, but this product was already released earlier.) Cons: 1.

Summary: I would not buy another Garmin. The 760 does not have the "ding" before it announces the turn. The marketing info never tells you that. More importantly, I have had this for about a year and the battery holds a charge for about 60 seconds.
Conclusion: I wanted so much to like this device. I started off my GPS career with a military Garmin unit and have been a Garmin user for many years. The Nuvi 760 is a good unit let down by some key issues that I couldn't live with.

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
