While some people may find them useful and helpful and i guess i could agree with that if your in an area that you have no idea where you are, I'm very rarely that far from home where i dont know how to get where I'm going so I just dont really need one that much.
Again, I'm sorry if i offended anyone but after spending $400 you kinda expect to have a product work like it's supposed to and i was a little upset and just thought I'd share my opinions with some other people. While i still would never recommend that particular unit to anyone, everyone has to make their own decision as to the quality of something they purchase.
Please, no apologies necessary I understand how you fell and I am not offended. With not knowing what you know, I thought I would but some helpful suggestion out there based on what I found out. The GPS was develop in Washington DC for the Government for defence in the same research center where I use to work now it is available to the public. One bad Garmin 760 doesnt mean that they are all bad, like you said you must have bought a bad one, now Concertone based on it's reputation and what you know, would you recommend it to some one else? I guess Garmin can't be too bad, because Nissan is putting them in there cars now. I hope you give Garmin another chance.
