I like it so far. I tested the low bridge warning on a known location (not towing) it it worked. I like the size of the screen and the different data you can display. So far so good. I'm going to get an anti-glare adapter for it.

I have one, it works well. Just be careful about the route 'avoidances'... the 'avoid tolls' wanted to take me 1500km and 15 hours out of the way (around the other end of Lake Ontario) to avoid the $6 toll at the Fort Erie bridge.

I have had to break down and get the extension cable for the backup camera... turns out the signal all the way from the back of the 5er was dropping out a bit. It wasn't obvious when using it in the daylight by turning on the lights manually - just sub-second video freezes, but on a recent trip to Florida the automatic headlights would turn it on when it got dark and every time it the signal dropped out and came back it would switch the display to the camera and there's no way to disable that. Naturally, that was at the end of the day after a 9-hour drive and right when you want to see the map for the last few miles of direction is the worst time for the camera to be stealing the display.

I have one and I'm very happy with it. I especially like the feature showing the correct lane for the turn ahead and the screen size. The GPS did a good job in understanding my voice commands so the "hands off" feature worked well as did its "traffic" feature showing delays and possible reroutes to avoid the delays.

I let my 760 plot my winter vacation to Florida. I sent that route to my PC and used Garmin's Basecamp program to tweak the route and select overnight stops. Then I sent the new route back to my 760 and used it for the trip. All went well but there is a learning curve to Basecamp.

Like any GPS, you are the final decider in your route. This is a good tool but I doubt anyone will say it is 100% correct on route selection for you to travel with your RV.

I would buy it again.

I bought one a fews months ago...I had the Rand McNally and had nothing but problems out of it.....the Garmin I like, plus everything else I have is garmin so sync between devices and using Base camp makes a difference...I have downloaded some 3rd party POIs to my garmin, I don't always follow its routes thought, nothing wrong and it usually has a good route for the rig set up....I just usually drive till I'm close to where I need to be, then turn it own for the final leg...unless it is a completely new route, which is very seldom anymore.. easier the other one........just my two cents....

I love my 760...very fast start up, large screen, lifetime free map upgrades. I installed with a wired HD quality camera...was not happy with the low resolution of the Garmin wireless camera.
