Terrible Battery Life, Some Addresses Not Found, Just an "Okay" GPS
18 August 2013
Summary: Pros: Nice size screen, slim body, great windshield mount, nice display (reflective technology makes it easy to see in daylight), quick satellite fix Cons: Bluetooth unusable, voices difficult to understand (very primitive computer-generated-sounding), low speaker volume, poor battery life, MSN Direct due to become obsolete After having owned an old reliable TomTom One, I decided to give Garmin a shot, rather than paying to update the TomTom's maps.
Summary: It has msn direct connection but free for 3 months trial. As all gps, when you connect to computer, you cannot see file names which you want to get rid of it. It is not upgrade the maps. As a result, you may enter wrong way or if you try to goto a place like reservation, it is not succesfull to find, it requires certain address. It has a dx card slot and you can load pictures, movies or mp3s.
Nuvi 780 built in Taiwan, but to Great Britain specifications

Summary: The Nuvi 780 is a well-built electronic unit and, mechanically, has performed without a hitch 9 months into ownership. The user manual needs a complete rewrite by a good technical writer who knows NOTHING about its electronic wizardness (which is considerable), but takes the approach of a naive user. More attention should be given to "How to change input data (such as home address).
Summary: Fast access of satellites and up to date maps. However my unit has defective voice which frequently fragments on the voice commands. Difficult to register online. Accessories now must be bought separately.
Summary: I owned several GPS and always enjoyed Garmin products. Nuvi 780 is somewhat disappointed compare to the older Nuvi 660 even I downloaded and upgrade firmwares to the most recent date. PROS: - Bluetooth sync very quick, but the MIC is not as good as 660. - Screen display is clear and bright. - Map is up-to-date. It says 2009 but.. well almost, some new streets in my town are not existed in Nuvi's Map even they are complete 2 years ago.
Pros: sin inconvenientes tecnicos o fallas, pantalla de buena vision, pantalla tactil facil de usar, responde rapidamente a lo solicitado.
Cons: falta informacion en los manuales sobre este producto, como por ejemplo que tipo de cargador se puede usar, si carga desde una pc, como solucionar algunos inconvenientes caso señal satelital y otros que el nuevo usuario desconoce.
