GARMIN nuvi 760 for $350!!!
« on: June 01, 2008, 12:24:06 AM »
Costco has the Garmin Nuvi 760 4.5" portable GPS navigation system with Bluetooth and FM transmitter for $350 with free shipping. Non-members are charged a 5% surchage.  Sounds like a good price to me, Cant find cheaper online anywhere.

The 200 is a piece of $%^&
Don't get anything under the 260.

As I have written before, bluetooth is not such a useful feature.
MP3 is a + but keep in mind that you will have to be busy adjusting your FM dial to find a clear channel for the FM transmitter. If you are on the highway, the clarity of your channel will be changing frequently. Also you will want to find out how much gb is avail for music.
Lane assist is quite useful, and Junction View a nice feature, but junction view is only avail in certain areas until more map updates come out.

My bad meant bluetooth!! Lol! Ya it's ridiculous how many things can be added to a gps for those cars that were made in the 60s without tape deck or cd player!! And most ppl that use Bluetooth have one already along with prob at least one iPod!!
