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.

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.

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

JRB, Amazon
24 February 2008
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: buen producto.
  • 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.

el balance final es bueno

GERMANHUGOC, MercadoLibre
9 January 2010
  • Conclusion: en lineas generles es un producto muy util con una rica informacion y multiples usos. Recomiendo su adquisicion.
  • Pros: marca hasta las lomas de burro. Muy importante cuando se maneja de noche y con poca luz, indica limites de velocidaden lgares donde hay radares., permite planificar rutas y luego utilizarlas, gran utilidad como manos libres para hablar por celular y para leer los mensajes de texto recibidos, buena funcion de registro permnente de velocidad
  • Cons: delay importante entre las instrucciones de voz y el recorrido. Ej. indica doblar a 250 cuando en realidad faltan 50m. Indica doblar cuando ya he doblado 10 segundos antes., por momentos se tilda y luego retoma la via actual., el calculo del tiempo de llegada dista de ser exacto

  • Summary: Este gps incorpora una pantalla fija de 4, 3 pulgadas, display touchscreen y reconocimiento de voz para el control del GPS en el vehículo, sin quitar las dos manos el volante. Una de las cosas que mas me gusta es el acceso a MSN Direct Content, os explico...cuantas veces habremos dado mil vueltas buscando y preguntando por cualquier establecimiento que sabemos la zona pero no el sitio exacto..??
