To start, the unit's volume is plenty loud, even at highway speeds. The screen is readable at all times, and automatically changes to a darkened "night mode" at night - very easy on the eyes. You can force it to day or night mode, if desired.
The map's movement and fluidity is tremendous. It has a very natural looking motion at all times. Garmin claims the unit updates at 10fps, and it seems to be about that. I am still deciding if I prefer 3D or 2D mode yet, but both are great. I tested routing on a few trips and the navigation worked perfectly. Directions were given in plenty of time, and repeated at appropriate intervals. When just driving (not navigating) the green bar at the top displays your current road, and even displays the next exit when driving (not navigating) on major highways. This was unexpected for me and really cool! The voice on the unit is clear.
The overall feel of the software is great. The menus move quickly and seem logically laid out. You can add categories to your favorites to better organize them. This helped a lot, since favorites are sorted by default via distance from your current location. Creating folders for your favorites works very well. You can even add a picture (and phone #) to your favorites. Very nice!
As for Bluetooth: I paired the 765 with my Blackberry Storm easily, and everything works flawlessly. My phone's contacts transferred immediately, and I can call Points of Interest and people from my contacts easily, with 1 touch. I do not have any of the bluetooth issues described in other places. No issues at all. So I'm either lucky or maybe there is some inconsistency in the hardware. More likely, different combinations of cell phones and GPS units lead to varying results. IMPORTANT: I did update the unit to it's latest firmware, which many say have helped their bluetooth connections.
I haven't been to an area with a traffic reception signal yet, so I can't comment on the traffic function.
All the other niceties work well for me also: The picture viewer, MP3 player, etc all work as advertised. I even put 1 of my pics as the startup image.
In conclusion, I am very pleased with the product so far. This is a great product that I would highly recommend.
The first unit I bought had a volume problem. The sound occasionally went to inaudible levels on its own even when the volume was set to maximum (100%). Then after a trip it would go back up to normal levels again. Amazon exchanged that defective unit.
The traffic rerouting feature really works. On a stretch of freeway with highway construction, the routing function intelligently bypassed that section of the freeway using detours. I love that feature. I assume the feature is only as good as the accuracy of information relayed to the center that keeps track of traffic information.
The lane assist feature has two modes: the photo-realistic mode and the highlighted lanes mode in the upper left corner of the screen. The photo mode only works at a few major freeway interchanges in major metro areas, while the highlighted lanes mode works at a lot more places. There is no need to press any button to activate either mode. The photo-realistic screen just pops up for a few seconds on its own at the right moment. Then it goes back to normal screen showing the highlighted lanes in the upper right corner of the screen when the critical moment is past.
The FM broadcast feature works well. It broadcasts directions over the car radio, but I have to set the radio volume high to get decent volume.
One big gripe, the turn announcements sometimes come too late, almost at the last minute. Most of the long distance turn announcements come in three stages. Example: after you just finished a turn, it will immediately say, "Drive 6 miles then turn right on Broadway". The second stage announcement is at either 0.1 miles or 0.2 miles: "In 0.1 miles turn right on Broadway." Sometimes the secondary stage will say: "In 0.2 miles turn right on Broadway." The third and last stage is at about 10 feet before the turn: "Turn right on Broadway." The problem is that the second stage warning at 0.1 mile before the turn is essentially a last minute announcement that is frequently only useful if you're already in the correct lane because 0.1 mile is about a half block length before the turn. If you had kept on driving for most of the 6 miles in the wrong lane, you'd likely have forgotten that you should be on the right lane to get ready for the right turn. Having only 0.1 miles of warning to change lane is sometimes very hard to do in busy city driving.
Another major flaw is the unit gets very hot on hot summer days when it's plugged in and placed on the dashboard. I use the bean bag mount on the dash and the unit gets very hot under the sun even when I am driving with the windows down. The sun's rays heat it up, along with the fact that the electronics inside heats up on its own when plugged in. The high temp is very bad for the longevity of the unit. I may have to either build a sun shield or put white tape on the back of the unit to reflect sun light to keep it cool. I would not be surprised if the some of the reports of premature malfunction mentioned by other reviewers and of the volume problem I mentioned earlier were due to heat damage.
The "Where Am I" feature is great, particularly if you're almost out of gas and need the GPS to lead you to the nearest gas station fast. It also shows the nearest police station and hospital. It also tells you the nearest intersection and nearest street address, useful if your car breaks down in unfamiliar places and you need to call for emergency service.
The MP3 player has about 2GB of free storage space. It can put out the sound in one of three modes: internal speaker, earphone jack, or over the radio using the FM signal. I didn't appreciate how nice it was having the MP3 feature until I realized that it's integrated with the GPS function, something that would not be true with your car radio. With GPS units that don't have MP3, one usually can't play music on the radio when the GPS is in operation(at least not loudly) because the radio would drown out the direction announcements from the GPS. With the built-in MP3 on the 765T, I can play a whole album of MP3 songs while the unit operates in the GPS mode. The driving directions announcements will override the music, so when it announces directions, the music stops temporarily and will resume once the direction announcements are over. Very nice!
Overall I love this unit. Is it worth the premium over a 255W or 265T? That depends on how much you value the lane assist and traffic info features and the MP3 feature. I don't have Bluetooth devices and so can't comment on it. The lifetime (i.e. for the life of the unit, not of the buyer) Navteq traffic info subscription is worth $50 + the traffic antenna about $35. So mostly the price difference between the 255/265 and the 765 is for the traffic feature, plus the MP3, bluetooth, lane assist, etc. Are they worth the $100-$120 price difference? I would tend to say so.
My issue with this unit is the responsiveness of the GPS. At times I have almost missed a turn. Traffic info is not up to snuff. I had other units working with it and the other two had more up-to-date info than the 765. In fact it tried to reroute me to avoid traffic that was not there which would have added time to my trip. That didn't happen with the TomTom 930 I was using at the time.
Another issue I have is that it loses its signal in tunnels, etc. Both Navigon and TomTom have units that estimate where you are. If you are in Boston these days, you are underground on all major roads through the city. So what good does that do? Also, there are some mapping errors, which is a Navteq issue.
The unit is sleek, crisp and gets you where you want to go. The lane assist and junction view is great, but the Navigon 7200 kicks in more often as does the TomTom 930. I do like the reality view junction shots and the dimmed signs that don't apply to you.
I prefer the TomTom routing to the Garmin. But the 765 can't be beat in its simple user interface.
