It is fine WHEN IT WORKS!

Dalya84, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this in 2009 and I had screen issues a few months in. I would turn on the GPS and the screen went black it just didn't boot up but you heard the noise it makes to acknowledge that you are pressing buttons but a blank screen. I had to send it to Garmin because it was still under warranty at that time to repair it. When I got it back it immediately had issues acquiring satellite. I didn't want to send it back because they took their time with it the first time.

Junk

D. G. Alcini "electro-nerd", Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: How disappointing. Garmin always made excellent gps and fish-finding equipment for boating. That's why I chose the Nuvi 760 over competing units four years ago. After a few months, the first updates came. I diligently hooked it up to my laptop and updated all the software. Performance suffered severely ever since.

Battery? The "ding" before it announces a turn?

Uncle Ruddy, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • 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. I called Garmin - they will not replace the battery and it is not under any kind of warranty. So I am buying the replacement battery from Amazon and seeing if that works. If not, it's Tom Tom for me.

Garmin 760

chall440, Ebay
26 December 2010
  • Summary: Bought on EBAY from a person claiming it was only used once on a vacation. It would not re-charge the internal battery via the car power cord and thus would not work at all...unless it was connected to a PC where it was getting electrical power via the USB port. Suspect a failed internal battery. Software indicated a 2008 model, so it could have been 2 years old. Returned unit and still awaiting a refund.

"Very buggy, loses audio frequently, locks up a lot"

jp_five, CNET
2 August 2009
  • Pros: Large screen, fairly large number of POIs, GPS mapping works pretty well
  • Cons: Significant bugs in this model, voice directions disappear frequently, locks up when turned on more than 50% of the time...says "maps loading" then will not move on unless power switch held in off position to reset, sometimes incorrect directions

"Sucks, totally useless waste money and time"

ee112, CNET
26 December 2008
  • Pros: good looking
  • Cons: For example, choose shorter distance from Chicago to Toronto. The GPS will show the direction from Chicago to New York and head north to Vermont and South to Toronto. Totally useless, waste money and time (2362KM) compare with Mapquest 900Km.

Enttäuschender Praxis-Eindruck beim Womo-Flaggschiff

serpent200, eBay.de
8 January 2014
  • Summary: 1600 km im Womo-Modus: 1) Umwege ausgewiesen, obwohl die zu als "schmal" ausgewiesene Straße für den Omnibus-Verkehr genutzt wird (z.B. L172 nach Hennigsdorf). 2) 80km/h Höchstgeschwindigkeit ausgewiesen, obwohl seit Jahren 120 km/h erlaubt (z.B. A10 nach Havelland und A24 Richtung Dosse) 3) unglückliche Menüführung 4) Reisedaten werden sehr verschwenderisch dargestellt, sind nie alle zusammen in der Karte sichtbar, sondern müssen selektiv auszuwählen werden.
