Summary: I really looked a long time before buying this Garmin Nuvi 780. I always get lost in cities and hate driving thru them. Now I can breeze right thru them without any errors. On the other side........ONE time......I went to see the Lava Caves in Klamath Falls OR and thankfully I knew where it was as the Garmin was wrong in its direction. That is the only time this happened for me though. Thought you should know both sides of the coin here.
Summary: I am a directionally challenged person whose family begged me to buy a GPS when they first became available. Not wanting to spend the money, I held off for several months. Finally convinced by my oldest daughter who owned a Garmin and showed me all the additional wonderful things a GPS could do, I bought my own. It turned out to be the best choice I could have made. I bought this item brand new in 2009 and it has been my car companion ever since.
works great and is the perfect fit for Suzuki Sport SX4 vehicle!

Summary: Works pretty well. Sometimes the map is off, and may need updating, so make sure you have the latest updates if possible - still not sure how to do that myself, but most of the time the navigation is perfect and I like the feature that I can type in local businesses and restaurants and get a fairly accurate list of local places to go to.
780 is a great device, but don't buy a used RED WHERE2 unit!

Summary: IMPORTANT BEFORE BUYING A GARMIN RED GPS (Especially 780 or WHERE2) READ THIS! The Garmin 7xx line is a great one. I found out the hard way (as did the seller) that RED Garmins are often former (stolen/lost) ABG property. I found out ABG means Avis/Budget group. These units will usually say WHERE2 on them and give a 1800 number to call if found. UPON LOSS THEY BECOME USELESS.
Best of the best of the best. Money that is saved in fuel is well spend.

Summary: One of the best GPS systems in the market. Easy to use, FM transmitter makes it easy to connect your music to your car radio also carry a phone conversation through your vehicle speaker. View your pix album in your car away from home. The only down side with this system is once in while it freezes up and you have to connect it to your computer to started again. Over all one of the best system in the market and it is no longer available at any retail stores.
Summary: A very good GPS model from Garmin, this unit catches signal fast and can be useful to make your travel trips from home. FM transmission is low powered but serves the purpose, I got a 16 GB memory card for this unit and now I can play songs and make this unit work as my music system/ GPS.
Summary: I have had other GPS units and I liked this model so much that I bought another one for my work truck. The only thing I will tell you is do not be looking at the MSN features (gas prices, movie times, traffic) as the MSN program has been discontinued.
Summary: I have had many GPS systems since they first came out as I can not read a map while moving. This is by far the best yet. First the screen does not wash out in the sunlight. Second because you can scroll the map around it can be used as a real map for finding options. Bringing back the old way points should also make it possible for YOU to plan your route and not just have to go their way or from town to town.
