$699 MSRP

$699 is the MSRP for the 785T not the street price.

When my 760 came out it had a MSRP of $857 but I paid $349 brand new.

I have a c550 that I paid only $150 for new but there is a huge difference between a c550 and a 760, believe me I know as I own and use both and until a person has owned both they do not understand. It is like comparing apples and oranges they are so different in actual use.

Everyone in my home always trys to first get the 760 and the c550 is used only when the 760 is not available. The added routing features and the far superior screen view alone are more than worth the difference in price.

7x5 series is not worth it to me...

You do have to realize this is for the 785T which comes with the MSN Direct receiver but only includes 3 months of trial service (not worth it IMO). The 765T is "only" $600 & the 755T is "only" $500. These are the MSRP prices.

I think if you already own a 7x0 unit, the 7x5's are not really worth the updated features unless you need the newest unit on the block. Along with the reviews that are coming in, having a touch screen that requires more than a "touch" (more like a hard press) and *less* street detail (*see below) on the 2D screen compared to the 7x0 makes this a "stay away for now" unit for me.

*Garmin has reportedly removed the "Most" zoom level (and the "Least") from the 7x5's Map Detail settings. The small roads are now only visible at zoom levels of 0.3 miles and less - at the 0.5 mile zoom, all the small roads disappear. The 7x0's are able to display the smallest roads at 0.8 mile rather than 0.3 mile zoom on the 7x5 series.
