I am a Garmin man....would never change.

Dont know if Nuvi 760 can run Oziexplorer though.

I have an old M4....its fantastic.

Hi - no it wont - you are limited to the firmware loaded (and any updates) and Garmin format maps. If greater versatility is required then a device running some form of windows mobile is worth considering. You then have the option of using a variety of gps mapping programs eg Garmin XT (so you can still use City Nav and oztopo etc), OziExplorerCe (uses raster format topo and geology maps plus airphoto images - including those sources from Google Earth) and Auto routing programs such as Destinator, Tom Tom, oute 66, Mio Map.

Nuvis also have limited ability to display coordinates in various formats/datums and record detailed tracks (depending on unit) which is a bit sad.

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Criket $599.00. Paid $340.00 on Ebay for mine. An Australian unit from an Australian supplier and am very impressed. The only PIA I can see it does not display UTM's.
