A Good GPS device with a few issues


If you like to install the GPS in the upper left corner and hide the power cable (like I did), you are going to need a 12V power extension to be able to run the power cable semi-hidden by the left pillar and underneath the dashboard.

All the features work as promised and other than the couple of items mentioned in the CONS section, I'm extremely satisfied

Spoken direction in other languages (Spanish in my case) are difficult to understand and very laughable. I ended up switching to English. Touch screen mapping might be off or I need to calibrate it somehow. When you have to punch the keys to input an...

Nuvi 775T


Had a nav unit in my Armada (nissan), which is a fine piece, so compared it with that and for a price about half of it Garmin works pretty good no, I will say wonderful.

Lane Assist, Blue Tooth Connectivity, Maps of Europe and US, Ease of use, FM connectivity

Blue Tooth is not connectable on every phone, Sound is very low even at high volume, Searching without full address (just type a word and search for it, it may not work)

Garmin Nuvi 775t - Gets you there, one way or another


It took me a while, I admit. But, eventually, I gave in, and joined the Garmin-owners of the world. I was stubborn about it, but I finally had to admit that it made sense to own one of these things. So I went out, compared features, and ...

Rich features, nice screen, good value, easy to use

A few questionable features

It's ok.... ”


This unit is basically the Garmin 265WT but without: 1. Bluetooth (don't use, don't care) 2. Lifetime traffic (rarely use, may care later) 3. Mini-USB to USB cable - WTHeck?!?! - How does Garmin think people will update GPS without the cable?! It costs...

Garmin 775T - Gets me where I need to go!


I finally did it. Kicking and screaming, I joined the Garmin-owners of the world. It took a while but I finally had to admit that it made sense to own one of these things. So I went out, compared features, and decided on the Garmin 775T.

Rich features, Nice Screen, Good Value

Sometimes a bit inaccurate, a few questionable features

Consumer review by:

use this way more than expected


We were late to jump on the GPS bandwagon but now that we're there we love it. We use this GPS way more than I ever thought we would. Forget you google maps. I can find my way to a new doctors office without you. I do wish that there were easier ways...

Easy to Use, Simple Setup, Compact

Short Battery Life, Lacks features

Consumer review by:

Two words: The Best!


I received my Nuvi 775t after my 755 locked up due to an error in an update from garmin (the cry known around the world). As an apology Garmin sent me a 775t and I have been highly impressed by the quality and features of this unit.Before I ...

accurate to a pin point, bluetooth, long battery life, fast load time

price tag (still worth it to me)
