Summary: My only complaint is county roads don't show up going down the hwy. I work cross country construction and it would be very helpful if I could see the county roads. Otherwise its easy to use and I really like it. Its my second 760 nuvi and just a little different in what you can do compared to the older version.
Summary: Not only has this GPS saved me time when I was lost on the backroads trying to get home, but the seller shipped promptly. The seller also answered a question regarding the device and offered me to return it if I was not satisfied. Indeed that sellers advice fixed my concern and I would happily purchase from them again. Thanks!
Summary: I will apologize for the long review to follow (I usually try to keep it to one screen). Over the past three years I have used three different GPS units from three different manufacturers. I thought a side by side comparison might be useful. The technology continues to advance, as does the feature set offered in the way of traffic reporting/rerouting and map updates, so I will try to stick the general feature set/usability of each unit unless it pertains to a feature...
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.
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.
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?
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.
