Summary: So the real reason someone buys a GPS guidance system is the directions, right? For that the Garmin Nuvi 770 does just fine. Not great, but fine. Example: I was driving on Hwy 92 in San Mateo, CA the other day. The device kept instructing me to get off at every off-ramp and then get right back on. I have no idea why. (I didn't listen to it, btw). It does do a good job though of shepherding me around the SF Bay though.
Summary: We bought this GPS for daily uses. Especially for our Florida Trip in August. We drove from Fort Laud. to Orlando without any problem except the entrance road has been changed in Universal Studio. We need to circle back. I highly recommend this GPS and the seller is efficient.
as good as the 760; euro-maps not as friendly.needs TTS

Summary: the refurb 770 is as good cosmetically as a 760, albeit not having a ready TTS included w/ it. For this one has to go to GARMIN.com to download the upgrade wizard that would detect your device via the laptop attachment, then directs you to choose what Text-to-Speech modules to want to uprade to. Europe maps are basically founded on their signalling system and one U.S. user would find it hard to adapt at first. The default setting might not be U.S.

Summary: Garmin NuVi 770 SatNav. I purchased mine 2nd-hand as a replacement for a Mio 269 DigiWalker for witch I could no longer obtain any updates. The one thing that made me decide on a 'Garmin' as the replacement was the fact that unlike any other maker, Garmin has no cut-off point for product updates. so in 5 years time, I'll still be able to buy maps for it.
Pros: Easy to program, with no end-date for updates either.
