Garmin nüvi 765T


Garmin adds another battery of incremental changes to its Nuvi line of GPS navigators with the introduction of the Nuvi 765T. This new Nuvi packs useful features, such as text-to-speech and visual lane guidance, but the best trick in its bag is free,...

Free ad-supported traffic updates are very useful. EcoRoutes software allows drivers to plan fuel efficient routes and track fuel economy. The Nuvi 765T features fast routing and recalculation. Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming greatly increase...

FM traffic doesn't work without the power cord and cradle, slightly limiting vehicle-to-vehicle portability.

The Garmin Nuvi 765T packs a number of useful features into an easy-to-use package and its ad-supported traffic updates are quite useful--plus, the ads themselves are quite unobtrusive.

Garmin Nuvi 765T GPS


With so many GPS receivers on the market, one can become quite overwhelmed when trying to make a decision when shopping for navigational help. Just how much do you need from the device, and what do you want it to do for you? How much do you want to...

The advertisements only appear on the screen when the vehicle is not in motion, so you don't have to worry about them interrupting your data as you drive. It's a pretty fair exchange for free updates, especially since the ads do not dominate the screen...

Review Of The Garmin Nuvi 765T


The Nuvi 765T's step by step navigation is reinforced by its text-to-speech directions and advanced lane guidance. The 765T also has software to guarantee fuel efficiency. The Ecoroute encourages drivers to drive frugally thus leaving a smaller carbon...

Free lifetime traffic up-dates; Ecoroutes software for the most fuel- efficient routes; quick routing response; audio streaming and blue-tooth hands free add to its list of features

ower-cord & cradle attachment is a must, for its use in FM traffic hence restricting its use for vehicle- to- vehicle portability

:The Nuvi 765T has an amazing list of features that work with precision. The ad’s are something that can be ignored and will not be an obstacle on your road to happiness. But the performance wasn’t up to the mark and at a steep price tag, Garmin hasn't...

Garmin nuvi 765T review


The Garmin nüvi 765T is a member of the second-generation nuvi 700 series family, adding lane assist, 3-D buildings and lifetime NAVTEQ traffic to an already significant feature set. The 765T has a 4.3″ wide touch-screen, pre-loaded maps of the U.S....

Garmin Nuvi 765T Review


The Garmin Nuvi 765T is one of the newer widescreen GPS units (Announced in August) in the Nuvi line at this writing and offers several key upgrades over the Nuvi 760 offering that I think are useful and worth consideration when shopping for a GPS. I...

The users liked the wide, large 4.3 inch LCD display. The unit also comes with free traffic alerts for life which can help you select the best route home. The 765T was also able to lock onto satellites quickly and finding points of interest was also quick

no battery life, takes several minuites to get GPS Sats


I had the nuvi 660 and liked it except for the bluetooth feature which I found to be quite useless. That aspect is just as useless on the 765. The 765 came out with several new features that I found appealing, so I replaced my 660. The 660 was quick to...

the speed limit indicator is great, The lane assit and look ahead for future turns and exits is great. Also find the ETA feature is helpful

This nuvi 765 is a disappointment. The battery does not take a charge, therefore map update fails because there is no way to get the battery charged enough to complete the update. For some reason, the unit takes minutes to get a lock on the sat's, and t
