Summary: I bought my Magellan 760 after becoming addicted to Magellan's Hertz Neverlost, but I should have done more due diligence before selecting Magellan. The bottom line is, you have to be able to trust a device that does what this does and I don't trust the stupid thing.
Summary: This is the first GPS that I ever bought, unfortunately, one that I will return. I got the Magellan 760 about a month ago and was hopeful that this would be a great GPS based on all the reviews from various places. Unfortunately, I did not find it to be the case.
Summary: Although you're looking at the Magellan 760, let me share with you my experiences with the Magellan 700. I have used the Magellan 700 to get from point A to point B. When it works (actually powers on), it will do the job. However, so will just about every other NAV unit on the market.
Summary: I got one of these after using the Hertz Neverlost system, which was fantastic. We like to call it the Magellan "Occasionally Lost and Sometimes Confused" system. Actually, it works very well most of the time.
Summary: The first one I ordered would not turn on. The second one was great, while it worked. It helped me get to all the events during a school competition in another city. It tells you when to change lanes, when to turn and reads the street names.
Summary: The 760 does routing functions great. You can enter an address or select a point of interest and it will provide detailed, accurate directions on how to get there. The voice instructions are vey nice to have as well.
Summary: For over a grand, this unit is way to expensive. The Garmin C330 and C340 are both hundreds less and much better units. The C340 even has real time traffic, a feature the Magellan units lack. Moreover, an internal battery is a must so you can use the unit outside of the car without a power cord.
