Garmin nuvi 770 is great but could be more
It tracks well, but instructions are on web site and they don't tell you this unless you ask. They also say instructions are in unit memory, but it would not show them on the screen or in print. Batteries are charged only from the automobile cigaret lighter receptacle or through the included USB cable. This means you have to run your computer or car to recharge. An expensive AC charger is available with U.S. and European adapters. I had to order that separately. They also don't tell you that points of interests are limited to gas stations, restaurants,hotels; whereas tourist attractions are non-existent on this device. North American maps and 'points of interest' are on the gps, but only European roads without 'points of interest' are provided on the 770. That is deceptive because they don't tell this up front. I had to order the European points of interests as they define it on SD at an extra charge. In addition languages is at an extra charge on SD. There is only one SD slot so you have to choose whether European ponts of interest on languages are plugged in. That is difficult if you are asking instructions. The voice is female. One of my male passengers thought it should have a choice of a male voice giving directions. He did not want a female telling him where to go. He gets enough of that at home. It could be a little more user friendly. For example if you want to put in a way point that is out of state for a pending trip, it will put up with this for a very short while before it says that you can't drive there and it zips you back to your current possition. That is truly anoying. i want to plan my trips when I have time while at home, not at some airport after having just landed.
