The difference between 660 and 760 can be found here.

Key differences are:
- 760 is slimmer
- Able to store 10 routes
- Hidden antenna
- Hidden tracking features

If I had a 660, it still does not have enough new features to justify the change. Furthermore cannot use external antenna. If die die must have external then have to opt for re-rad. Tracking can do ? Nothing beats 60Cx, HCx etc... This is just my own opinion.

You might want to consider this new intro soon to be released next March... with 80Gb included for lots of playback from Meetings or dictations within the biznuz commuting.... :mrgreen:

Toshiba's introducing the MK8050 hard drive that has increased shock tolerance and vibration dampening. The disk has a cushion of air around the head to prevent scratching, which causes data loss, swearing and begging. Expect to see it in GPS units and do-it-yourselfer kits next March.

You can connect an external antenna directly to the Nuvi 7xx series. No need re-rad.

I'm also looking into getting this but my concern is the tracking. How good will it be? Will it keep jumping to the closest road? Can I use it offroad to mark my trail.

It would be nice to have an all-in-one instead of a few GPSr cluttering the dashboard. Easier to take it off when parking. Then again different people have different preferences.

How is your experience with Garmin Nuvi 760 so far?
I am getting mine next week. Bought from oversea cheaper. :p (expected no warranty)

Not sure need to get the fiction mount or not, is the stock suction cup gd enough?

Built quality very good. But strangely, I can't seems to get into the satellite page by tapping on the satellite reception bar (like what I did on my 660).

Get the friction mount! It's definitely much much better than the sucton cup holder which is prone to dropping off every few days due to the heat.

Seeing how different parts adapt where required when weather and heat is taken into account, I would suggest getting that "bean-bag" mount as a back up (a life time investment...) and it also serve as decor for the dashboard (not for me personally but it appears that way in Asia... :-k )

When yr GPS drops off, and u're driving at that moment, no panic.... just catch it like most multi-taskers do without a blink and place it on the bag, real simple with safe driving continued and no sudden urge to pull off to the side!! :mrgreen:
