Garmin Nuvi 750/760/770 Product Info

The Garmin Nuvi 750/760/770 is the new top of the line model set for late 2007, and will carry some new software features and hardware design elements into the new year. It was announced at the end of August at the Berlin electronics show. The hardware design is a carry-over from the Nuvi 200W series design that drops the external flip up antenna that was a feature on the older Nuvi lines (Nuvi 300 series and Nuvi 600 series). The new 700 series adds a few software tweaks that are worth mentioning:

  • Route planning - create itineraries ahead of time and optimize them.
  • Where Am I button - Similar to TomTom's Help Me button, this is a fast way to get to a few key bits of information like your current location (in case you need to tell emergency responders), and quick buttons to get to the closest hospitals, gas stations, and police stations.
  • Slightly re-designed interface that maximizes the usability and use of the widescreen format.

    The Garmin Nuvi 750/760/770 has integrated TMC traffic that comes with the unit. After a 3-month trial subscription, you would need to pay the roughly $70 annually to get the traffic feeds.

    What's the difference between the Nuvi 750/760/770?

    In keeping with the similar X50/X60/X70 line-up configurations, the Nuvi units will be differentiated by the 750 as the base, the Nuvi 760 with added Bluetooth, and the Nuvi 770 with North American and Euro Maps pre-loaded.
