"no battery life, takes several minuites to get GPS Sats"
25 August 2011
Pros: the speed limit indicator is great, The lane assit and look ahead for future turns and exits is great. Also find the ETA feature is helpful.
Cons: This nuvi 765 is a disappointment. The battery does not take a charge, therefore map update fails because there is no way to get the battery charged enough to complete the update. For some reason, the unit takes minutes to get a lock on the sat's, and t
Summary: Some features are good, others are bad. On the good side the screen is easy to see, working with it from the driver's side is easy enough. The info on attractions, food etc. is reasonably useful. The spoken directions are clearly heard, either through the unit itself or over the car sound system, depending on which mode I have selected. But it is those directions, pretty much the reason you buy a gps, that reflect the bad.
Summary: I've had an older Nuvi before and I was happy with that. With this new one, while Lane assist and Junction view are helpful, the unit has two major flaws (even after firmware upgrade) that make it rather unusable for me: 1- The unit hangs randomly (i.e., becomes unresponsive for several seconds).
Summary: I've had this unit for a while now. I'll admit that I have never had any issues the quality of the navigation. But there are two main issues with it: First, the screen is hyper-sensitive and there is some kind of flaw in its construction. You touch a key, and the character that appears on the screen is from a key that is not even close to the key you touched. The character will be from a key on the other side of the keyboard! I happens pretty much all the time.
Summary: First of all, I'll try to throw the negative issues here first; if you can overlook mine as you gather the 765T's feedback with others, then feel free to look at the good things. And some bad/ugly may be also good, and vice-versa. THE BAD (and UGLY): I've had the 765T since late last fall 2009.
Pros: Quick trip compute. Traffic data is a plus. Turn assist is helpful. Speed limit display is right on. Compass indicator for north is a good addition.
Cons: Garmin needs to fix problems. Maps do not have necessary points of interest. Maps are basically blobs, no towns or cities, or river names. No topographical names ie battlefields, golf courses, etc. Late turn notices.
Summary: I have had this device just over 2 weeks and traveled from Los Angeles to Colorado. It was an early xmas gift Well first off the device came with a nice scratch on the screen which is not horribly noticeable but you should be ready to receive a not perfect device. I have been back and fourth with Garmin for several days because the clock even when set manually is off by 1 hour for all functions other then just the time.
"Rip off. FM traffic? Not useful. Highways option? No."
22 December 2009
Pros: Monitor is clear.
Cons: No highways mode, may take you on side streets; directions sometimes wrong, miles before correcting; in NYC did not recognize FDR drive; GPS car spun out of control driving into the Hudson; free lifetime traffic is like NO traffic. Limited markets.
