Garmin nüvi 760 GPS Automobile Navigator Review

Garmin nüvi 760 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Automobile Navigator
I am extremely pleased with the performance and functionality of the Garmin nüvi 760 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Automobile Navigator. All of the main features worked as published with a few exceptions noted below. The user interface is very well designed and I was able to operate 80% of the functions without reading the manual. In addition to the 760, I also purchased the Garmin Friction Dashboard Mount which I believe is superior to the glass suction mount provided.

The one big annoyance for me was that if you directly input the POI name, the search can take a long amount of time (greater than 5 minutes) if it goes outside of your vicinity. This is extremely slow compared to our in-dash GPS system. The touch screen could be more responsive and is not that sensitive especially with the browse map option. The 760 bluetooth pairs consistently and quickly with my Motorola cellphone but the receiving and transmitting sound quality is very poor. The FM transmitter is unusable

The Garmin nüvi 760 has much better fonts for street names than the 660. This may seem like a trivial update to some, but the 760’s fonts greatly improve visibility. The fonts on the 760 are smaller, cleaner and surprisingly much easier to read while driving. The maps end up looking professional.

Garmin nüvi 760 GPS Automobile:
Pros: Routing engine seems very good, multi-destination routing optimization, good POI database, more map updates compared to competition, great user interface, better font compre to 660
Cons: Touch screen is not very sensitive, outdated map data, FM transmitter is useless, Expensive.
