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.

You didn't offend me. You gave your review and opinion so no need to be sorry. And I would not be happy either if the unit didn't work like it was supposed to, especially for that kind of money. A GPS is a tool. Not the end all to navigation. What's going to happen to them when we start on our next Sun spot cycle??

Oh, and I will still carry my maps with me.....

I get frustrated too, when I decide I want to go another direction than the planned route and the GPS tries to get me back to another road...even if it takes longer/is further to the waypoint. It's just what they do.

Overall, I think they are great. Perfect? No. Fun? Yes. Thanks for your honest review. (although I'd sure like to hear you bought a different one and tried using it the same way and gave another review!) :-)

I was thinking about getting another one. Maybe a cheaper one without al the unnecessary features like bluetooth and mp3. I figure if it's gonna be wrong then it can be wrong and i can be $250 richer for a cheaper model!!
I'll let you know if i get another one and try it out.

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.
