The Nuvi 770

#1 Post by kc » Tue Nov 20, 2007 8:32 pm

For those waiting for this, the Nuvi 770 is here.

Just saw it at PW today. Witness the opening of the shipment box.

The device is a beauty - not cheap at $1.6K+ though!

It has bluetooth, FM Transmitter, Widescreen and burned-in N America map. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately - no tracklogging so it is out for mappers like myself. Sigh!

Nuvi 7XX Series do come with track logs with 10,000 waypoints. Here's the write-up from the Garmin website.

Plan Ahead
nüvi 750 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 750's wide screen. In addition, nüvi 750 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.


Here's the download of the tracks in Yellow from my 750.

623MRB1 - Can you send me a set of tracks of anything at all. I'd like to check it out. If good, I may actually go for it. What tracklog options does it have - ie dot frequency (time/dist)

What's the diff between the 750 and 770?

Thanks!

Nuvi 750 does not have Bluetooth... Nuvi770 has more maps [incl transatlantic], the later is almost twice costly :$gone:

The 770 with more options like destination planning will be a thrill for many traveling alot in a short span of time... esp. for long routes across borders, it should be a challenge to the TomTom we are having with equally high appraisal ratings but I'm looking at this too with interest!!!

Anyone knows if the 750 or 770 are able to tracklog "off-road"? Can the "lock-on-road" be turned off?

If not, they are still not useful for mapping.

if im not mistaken, the difference betw the 760 and 770 is just price (USD200 more) for the trans-atlantic map provided for the latter. mr yan quoted $1,690 for the 770.

he will bring in the 760 only next year.

btw, how much is the 750 going for?
