Garmin nüvi 765/765T 4.3-Inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic Review

Garmin nüvi 765/765T 4.3-Inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with TrafficGarmin has not stopped providing improved interface on its GPS Navigators while maintaining ease of operation for users.

Garmin’s product aim is to manufacture extremely complex navigation technology while making their products user-friendly at the same time.

Garmin has redesigned its interface by adding more features on Garmin nüvi 765/765T 4.3-Inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic while retaining most features of its predecessors.

The model number of the unit itself is 765. The letter ‘T’ refers to the additional Traffic Receiver component which is included in the box thus naming the device ‘765T’.

Lane Guidance
Garmin nüvi 765T has Lane Guidance feature. This allows you to view what lane you should be in for upcoming turns. You will see photo-realistic screen with the new 3D Lane Assist Junction View which displays the road detail and signs.

HotFix™
For a device to navigate effectively, it needs to get a ‘lock’ on three satellites. With Garmin’s HotFix technology, GPS becomes capable of remembering the position of all satellites it is tracking when it is turned off. Upon turning it on, it easily locates the satellites that it previously tracked.

Traffic-Capable FM
Touching the screen to view traffic details, TMC Clear Channel alerts you about traffic tie-ups and road construction that lie ahead. The traffic broadcast is received through silent FM data channel so it doesn’t interfere with music or news programs on car radio.

Multi-Destination Routing
This feature allows you to enter several spots into the unit and it will plot the fastest possible route. It then allows you to save up to 10 different routes. The trip log of the unit provides trail of up to 10,000 points so you can trace where you have been in the map.

“Where Am I?” “Where’s My Car?”
The first series that enables you to answer these questions are the 700 series. Just a single tap on the unit’s screen allows it to display the exact latitude and longitude coordinates of the user’s location. Garmin nüvi 765T automatically marks the position in which it was last removed from the mount thus allowing you to find your car in a vast parking lot.

Text-To-Speech Feature
This device has Text-to-speech feature which automatically calls out specific name of streets. Instead of saying the usual ‘turn right in 200 feet’ alert, it specifically says ‘turn right on Main Street’. This awesome feature allows drivers to have their eyes focused on the road while they are navigating through tricky roadways and heavy traffic.

Wider Display
Garmin’s nüvi 765T has 4.3-inch backlit wide touchscreen. It displays 70% more screen area than a navigator with only 3.5 inches of screen. The wide screen is beneficial in showing the nearby restaurants, parks, gas stations, ATM machines and the like. It also alerts you when there’s a detour ahead and it has 2D or 3D display.

Bluetooth Technology
Nüvi 765Thas Bluetooth wireless technology with built-in microphone and speaker for hands-free calling. It makes phone conversation comfortable by pairing the device with a Bluetooth-compatible phone and dialing the numbers from nüvi’s touchscreen to make a call. Simply tapping the nüvi’s screen let’s you answer incoming calls.

Map Data
Garmin’s nüvi 765T is preloaded with City Navigator NT North America which covers map data. It contains almost 6 million of points of interest such as restaurants, hospitals, gas stations, etc. The map data is powered by NAVTEQ, a renowned maker of premium-quality digital map data. The City North America NT provides the necessary road data to travel North America as it provides the most detailed street maps which enables you to navigate with accurate road directions.

Garmin Lock
This device has theft prevention system. When a non-owner attempts to use it, the screen asks for 4-digit PIN number which was previously programmed by the owner. Pressing the wrong PIN temporarily disables the device from performing its functions.

Designed For Ease
This device is made with a GPS receiver that is highly sensitive for ideal accuracy. It has wide screen for better display and provides ease of operation by controlling the device through its sensitive touchscreen with your fingers. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is capable of up to 4 hours of power. The SD card slot is great for storing media and additional navigation tools. It also has USB interface for loading data. Aside from navigation tools, Garmin’s nüvi 765T has JPEG picture viewer, measurement converter, calculator, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter and more.

Despite all the great features above, the Garmin nüvi 780 has its downsides as described below:

Users’ Complaints
(These can be isolated cases. A unit replacement can be done under the warranty policy.)

  • Routes are convoluted sometimes.
  • The whistles and beeps such as the Lane Assist seldom give on-time signal, or worst, they never give signal at all.
  • Garmin nüvi 765T is slow to refresh.
  • This device has nice traffic and lane assist features but both can become useless when the core routing system fails to work like it should.
  • Nüvi 765T sometimes warns you to take the turn several seconds after you are supposed to turn.
  • This unit takes you to unnecessary side routes at times just to avoid what it thinks is traffic when it is actually not.
