  • Editor’s Take

  • What was missing in the Garmin GPS receivers were advanced planning navigation features — and now Garmin has delivered:
    – With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 770’s wide screen.
    – In addition, the nüvi 770 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls.
    – It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates.
    – A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.
  • Custom POIs mean that now you can upload points of interest created by others
  • Where am I? help:
    – Lets you find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection.
    – Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates.
    – Even remembers where you parked! It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots such as amusement parks, stadiums and malls.
  • No more fold up antennae, yeah!
  • Advanced navigation and planning features should enable Garmin to recapture lost market from TomTom.
