Summary: I have a Tom Tom Go 700 and a Go 900 too. I decided to buy a new Nuvi 880 on E-bay because Tom Tom wants too much for Map upgrades. I simply chose to put my money towards a newer and more modern and more compact unit. I am very disappointed with the Garmin Nuvi 880 because I can't hear the voice instructions at 100% volume. The Lady speaking sounds like she has a mouth full of Peanut Butter or something else in her mouth, maybe ****. I have never used Blue Tooth.
Summary: I bought this GPS as an upgrade from the Garmin 350. I love my Garmin 350 and thought that upgrading to this 880 would be just as good and better, but I was wrong. The selling point for me with this unit was the speaking the name of the streets, voice command and the bigger screen. I have to say the greatest feature of this GPS is the voice command.
Nice, but integrated maps and Nuvi's intelligence still problematic

Summary: I had a Garmin 760, which was fine. The 880 is an even better gadget. But the Nuvi is still no smarter than it was; just more tricks to it. First, the base maps still seem to be at least three years old, even if you buy this year's maps. My iPhone is much more useful in finding places of business than my Nuvi. Second, the Nuvi software does not have any sort of "smart" road name recognition as you type.
