A full and comprehensive test and report on the Nuvi 760. This report is from USA so some features may not be incorporated in Australian Units, (as the Traffic report) Change the numbers in the drop down list too, some owners comments around 12 to 29

Garmin nuvi 760 Review


Route planning, trip logs, and speed limit indicator, I feel sure this will be many times better in acuracy than Willems TomTom.

Mine is in the mail and eager to get the claws onto it.

Doug,

I don't know if you are aware, but there is a nasty little endless loop type of advertising pop up on the bottom of each page in that Review Link.

Note to any readers:
To avoid the popup make sure you scroll to the very bottom of the page and click on "Next Page" to proceed thru the review. If you click on the ">>NEXT" box it takes you down an aggressive advertising path for a registry cleaner.

Kingo

PS I like the sound of this NUVI 760. I am just waiting to see what the OZtopo v2 maps are like before I abandon my Garmin II+ and Ozi explorer on PDA.

With all these Garmins keep an eye on the 12v adapter head that you insert into the 12v outlet, they have a BAD habit of vibrating loose and blowing the fuse in the 12v outlet. We had three do it in Canada, Avis weren't too happy when we kept bringing them back, I even showed the guy how loose the replacement one was when I took it from him, he near did a double take when I tightened it with the Leatherman hahahaha

Hullo Doug,

I've got a 660, like yours Doug. Have you noticed the rubber suction cup starting to get a bit rough and not sticking on the windscreen properly?

Any fix other than a new one?

cheers

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

No...........but it and the quest have parted from the glass now and then , just give it's ar$e a lick and put it back again, I don't own a Nuvi 660 anymore, it's got a happy new owner and I have a 760 in the mail from Johnny Appleseed .
