Garmin Nuvi 780: Great GPS, Great features!
Garmin Nuvi 780: Great GPS, Great features! I bought this garmin used from craigslist about 6 months back. What really attracted me to this unit was the large screen and the ease of use touchscreen on it. I had heard a lot about garmin gps units and thought i'd try it out. I use it in my Nissan Maxima and have been very pleased with the garmin nuvi 780. This unit is the new design which does not have the flip out antenna, but it still manages to get a satellite lock very quickly and does not loose it on very cloudy days or in downtown areas with a lot of tall buildings. The feature I love on this unit is bluetooth that lets me sync my phone and phonebook to the unit and use it as a hands free for my phone while driving. I feel in this day and age this is a great safety feature provided by this unit. Another feature I like is the ability to use an SD card and load up music on it. I have this connected to my car stereo and it plays music through it, pauses the music when it gives the direction for navigation or when it receives or makes phone calls.
