Review

We have had the Garmin 760 for two years and especially like the 7″ screen. You are able to program it for several vehicles at one time and switch between them easily. So far when in motor home mode it has not taken us anywhere we shouldn’t be. It will warn you of steep grades, speed limit changes, sharp curves, school zones and more. You can hook up to your phone with Bluetooth and it will give you real time traffic updates. But, (there’s always a but) it can also be frustrating. We’ve had it take us a mile and a half past our destination and make a u-turn and go back for no apparent reason. You have to be careful of your programming. When we first got it we were headed to Ft Collins, CO. The 760 was sending us down through Denver from I-80 W instead of going to I-25 south through Wyoming. I had programmed the weight wrong for our motor home and once I fixed that it routed us the right way. Garmin has a POI factory that you can download specific points of interest to your computer and then transfer them to your Garmin. These have been very helpful when looking for specific points, like Pilots or Love stations or churches etc. They show up as a separate POI on your Garmin.
