Battery dead

Craig, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • 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.

mini usb charger is a pain.

benikow, Ebay
8 July 2011
  • 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).

Cool features but fraught with technical problems

poofier, Amazon
26 June 2011
  • 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.

  • 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: When someone calls in on my 760, they say the echo and sound is extremely bad. I can't even use the feature. Is there any solution?

Wanderer9787, Rate it all!
11 December 2008
  • 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.

Mine is going senile

schmand31, J&R
24 August 2008
  • Summary: I've had one almost a year and the thing is going senile. On short trips it seems OK. But on long trips 100+ miles the thing gives really bad directions, and I mean bad. Like telling me to make a left into the Hudson River. Also the directions break down quickly when I'm close to my destination. It frequently sends me East when I should go West. It's OK but take directions from mapquest or something when you go on a long trip. Cause this thing might send you to Timbuktu.
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Inaccurate
