Great Purchase

  • Summary: I bought the Garmin NUVI 780 about three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive GPS. The GPS size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly. My only complaint is that the menu system under device images on the GPS; you can hold only 5 or 6 icons. Other GPS I've owned have same menus.

Garmin nüvi 780 Car GPS Receiver - Pro's & Con's

  • Summary: The product, like any other Garmin product is excellent and the features I most enjoy about it is the FM transmission of directions to the vehicle audio system which makes it much clearer to hear than that of other models without the facility. The blue tooth facility is also a great help as far as road safety is concerned as one don't have to reach for the phone etc.

some improvements, some setbacks

  • Summary: This is the second GPS unit I have owned. After reading countless reviews on many products I selected this one since it was lower cost due to its out of production status, but had the features I wanted;… text to speech, blue tooth for hands free phone,live traffic information, and a reputation for quick start-up finding all the satellites it needs to navigate. Garmin also has a good reputation. How does it work?

Garmin nuvi 780 GPS

  • Summary: This is my second purchase of a Garmin GPS system for myself, since my husband got a hold of the first one. I upgraded from the 760 which he now has to the 780. I like the touch screen, being able to store destinations in favorites, and all the perks I have yet to discover. My biggest challenge is trusting my GPS, but when I don't I get into trouble. With all the road construction and revisions it is important to update your GPS.

  • Summary: We purchased the nuvi to help us on a trip from Bluffton Ohio to Salt Spring Island in British Columbia. My wife and I are finding the nuvi very helpful and accurate in finding specific locations, fuel stations, food, hotels. We purchased a used diesel dump truck to use on our property in B.C., and planned on having a pleasure trip as well as ferry the truck back to B.C.

Overall nice, but not always accurate.

  • Summary: Overall nice, but not always accurate. After I paid for the Garmin Nuvi 780, I paid for the map upgrade and the roads around my area were still not up-to-date. The Blue Tooth feature makes this very nice to use. For an extra subscription fee, the MSN Direct add-on option allows me to get traffic updates, see movie times, get gas prices, stock quotes, news updates, You can listen to MP3 files and Audio books, and it has a few other extras as well.

Garmin 780 GPS

  • Summary: This was an upgrade for a stolen 760 unit. The unit is very much the same as the 760. This one does have the MSN FM receiver where as the 760 has the FM traffic receiver. There is a lot more alavable with the MSN connection though is appears it will cost a little bit more than the traffic that comes on the 760. The 780 is the same size and has the same functions as the 760. Both work very well and are not annoying if you get off route for some reason.
