Can this flaghip satnav see off its TomTom rival? You bet it can. And here's why

Powerful ; Easy to use ; Great map instructions ; Points of interest ; Bright, clear display ; Genuinely useful features

Voices sound artificial, stilted ; Can lose satellite coverage in weak signal areas ; No dead reckoning

Garmin's top-of-the range nuvi 770 is small and light and easy to use but it's not the prettiest and it's quite expensive too.

Slim / light / Simple to use

Naff graphics / poor handsfree quality

Map routing is misleading

 

With routing option of ?Shortest Time?, Nuvi 770 frequently suggests routes that exit from highway to narrow local roads. The drives are more winding and take a lot longer. My guess is that its routing is based on speed limit of each section. The...

nice interface. Have coordinate option

Routing misleading

Ok at best. WAY too pricy

 

Quite honestly, NOT worth the price. I was a Garmin follower, but I have seen the light. MUCH cheaper units actually do a far better job (eg, Navigon, TomTom, and others). At Garmin they think they invented navigation and that they still own the roads,...

Poor GPS tracking

 

I purchased nuvi 770 3 months ago and was disappointed to see GPS tracking lags behind the real position by at least 100 feet. The unit instructs to make a turn into a street which has already passed. Terrible. I returned this one thinking i got a bad...

Europe maps in addition to US (I have not tried europe), Bluetooth technology (works satisfactorily)

IRouting is not satifactory and GPS tracking lags behind by at least 100 feet

Product Specifications

More maps and wide - there's simply more to see with nuvi 770. This personal travel assistant is packed with preloaded maps for North America and Europe, not to mention advanced navigation features, a widescreen display, an FM transmitter, hands-free calling, traffic alerts and more. Like the rest of the wide nuvi 700-series, its premium navigation capabilities, like route planning and a handy locator, give you peace of mind on the go. With nuvi 770's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read - from any direction. nuvi 770 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and millions of points of interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, ATMs and more. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nuvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, nuvi 770 accepts custom points of interest, such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The European version even includes a preloaded safety camera database containing the location of cameras for parts of Europe. Keep track of yourself and your car with nuvi 770. Just tap "Where Am I? " to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. nuvi 770 even remembers where you parked. It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate with nuvi on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots such as amusement parks, stadiums and malls. nuvi 770 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 770's wide screen. In addition, nuvi 770 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. Talk about worry-free driving. nuvi 770 integrates Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker for hands-free calling. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 770 while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nuvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak directly into its built-in microphone. Steer clear of traffic with nuvi 770's integrated FM TMC traffic receiver. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch nuvi's screen to view traffic details or detour around the problem area. nuvi 770's high-sensitivity internal (non flip-up) antenna gives it a sleeker, thinner design than the nuvi 600-series, making it easy to slip in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or on foot.
