Replacement for faulty unit

David S Briggs, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: This was replacing a new unit I purchased that was faulty. The replacement was refurbished and the battery/charging was not very good. Could not connect to the website for upgrades. However, unit seems to work pretty well despite all this. I really wanted it for the FM transmitter that seems to have been discontinued on more recent models.

Terrible Battery Life, Some Addresses Not Found, Just an "Okay" GPS

JRB, Amazon
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.

Doesn't understand "FASTEST route"

Tina Watkins, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: Before I get into my complaint, let me say that I really DO like this Garmin product! The 760 does as good as it's maps allow it to do. I love the MP3 player. The screen is plenty big, good color and very readable in sunlight. I've had mine several years and it still holds a good battery charge. I love adding my own POI and routes and I love that it's compatible to MapQuest so I can create a route on MapQuest and download it to my GPS.

Works okay, not durable

Rizwan Ahmad, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this Nuvi in December 2008. This Nuvi model is a little slow to start up. Other than that I have no complaints. Update: In February 2011, I had to replace the suction cup mount because the previous one lost its suction after two years of regular use. Update: In July 2011, the GPS quit working. I opened the GPS and found a loose electric connector. After re-snapping the connector it started working again.

Nuvi 780 built in Taiwan, but to Great Britain specifications

Uncle John, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • 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).

Garmin nuvi 780 Car GPS Receiver

mua_57, Ebay
10 April 2009
  • 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.
