Surprisingly, First Bad Experience With Newegg!!!

Frederick R., Newegg
20 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this device for my father for Christmas and now I don't get to give him his gift until after Christmas. I am very surprised that Newegg even let a device be sent the way it did. I've ordered many things from Newegg and have never had this bad of an experience.
  • Pros: Delivery was on time.
  • Cons: The GPS unit was not boxed correctly. It was left loose in the box and had a scratch on the screen and also had scratches on the back-side of the device. On boot-up of the device, it took approximately 10 minutes or so to find my location. It kept saying that I was in Chicago even though I'm in C...

Please Read Before You Purchase

  • 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.

Locks up after running 2-3 hours.

MILLARD M., Newegg
24 August 2010
  • Pros: Nice display. Easy to use.
  • Cons: Ran fine during 90 day warranty then 2 weeks after warranty expired it started locking up after running for 2 hours. Works okay for short trips but thats not why I bought it.

User Review

Douglas F., Newegg
15 May 2010
  • Summary: I went back and read other people's reviews and it seems like Garmin either doesn't have a very good quality control system for refurbishing or this model is a dog. I like Garmin but this one is being returned.
  • Pros: I do love the "Lane Assist" feature. It is very helpful on those sections of freeway with multiple exits and lots of traffic. The verbal instructions were audible although possibly a little robotic sounding.
  • Cons: The touch pad was not accurate. Taping in an address without mistakes was virtually impossible. Correcting the mistakes was equally frustrating. The screen brightness seemed OK until I was driving into the sun and then it was almost impossible to see the screen. Initially acquiring a satellite si...

very annoying produkt. I want my Nuvi 200 back.

Anonymous, Newegg
16 February 2010
  • Summary: Really disapointing produkt. I hate it when a company comes out with NEW produkts which backtrack and are WORSE than the older produkts. because then i am on the internet trying to find an old one for sale, that doesnt have the traffic feature which is nice.
  • Pros: The traffic detektor works well, and is a plus over the old nuvi 200W, but unfortunately the only plus over that model. Looks cool.
  • Cons: several cons: 1) the mount is worse than that on the nuvi200. The area where the car charger plugs into the side is so delicate that it's broken for me. I havent even looked to see how much that will cost, but i'm sure it's a lot 2) alpha-keypad mode is really bad. my wife and i constantly have t...

keeps crashing even after firmware upgrade

Sep Kali, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • 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).

Too many quality issues ...

Frank and Kim Rocha, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • 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.

Poor quality assurance.

Randy S. Little, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • 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.

nuvi 765t barely adequate

James L. Coddington, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • 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.

Garmin 765T glitch

alan g., Newegg
27 October 2009
  • Summary: Waiting for my replacement. I love my 265T and am looking forward to the new features. Garmin did say that this model was problematic and the freeze problem was common with the June 2009 update. They of course fix it, but what a nuisance.
  • Pros: Refurb unit came in great shape and powered up and found satellites quickly. Newegg return/replacement policy should allow for crosship
  • Cons: Updated the software to the latest firmware and tried to register the unit as soon as I got it. I had to wait on hold with Garmin as the unit had been registered before and they needed proof of purchase to be emailed. Unfortunately, the unit froze up and garmin recommended returning to Newegg. Ne...
