The routing is quite good. The unit has hung on me a few times though, esp. when using the where-am-I function.
Satellite lock takes on average 5 mins.

I understand that the nuvi 7xx series can do tracking and have used it, but it seems to be a very basic function. Is there any way to set the tracking options, like the frequency of the logging?

Hi Zetc.

Do you know the difference between the standard Nuvi 750 and 750T? What feature does the 'T' have or is missing?

Thanks.

Both Nuvis identical in functions. 750T does not come with a cable for FM traffic feature

Yup, that's right. The "T" stands for Traffic apparently from what the person who sold it told me.

I have found the Garmin a great savior during my recent golf holiday in Portugal and Spain despite having my TomTom along to put it to the test. It took just under 2 minutes to home in on the satellites at every drive out from the underground hotel parking but I also let my TomTom perform its disappointing share of performance. TomTom's coverage of Portugal is a miserable 84% only. Garmin had little too but thanks to its tracking feature which can be saved, I get to places "saved" earlier, without a glitch which makes all the difference like it did in Thailand too!!! :thumbsup:

Am considering a new intro unit from Garmin pretty soon... perhaps the Nuvi 5000.... to be released in March I believe. Was almost tempted to buy the 750T in the Algarve Shopping Centre at Albufeira but their prices were a weebit more expensive for my immediate desire.

Hi ecphome,

Just realised that you have a 750. Can I check with you if it has the same issue as the 200 series where, apparently by design, the POIs do not display on the map. If you drive along a road, the building names next to the road will not show, no matter what setting you choose. I hope this does not happen in the 750.

Bro ecphom, do u know how much is the 760 selling there? My bro is going to California soon and I am asking him to get one for me. Any details of the dealer you got it from?

What's your opinion of the 750 compared with the 760?

Tq in advance.

760 should be identical to the 750 except that it adds Bluetooth and FM Traffic. 770 is identical to the 760 except that it adds Europe maps.

From Amazon.com, the prices are around US$380 for 750, US$480 for 760 and US$680 for 770. But http://www.hsn.com is reportedly selling the 750 now for US$299. I can't get into the website though.

If I buy online, I save on US tax but end up paying postage back to Singapore plus GST as the amount is more than S$400.
