After several days of obsessive research, I'm now entering the world of GPS. I finally selected a Garmin 765T, when I found it for 370 @ ABT.com. (Another site had it cheaper when looking through Amazon, but when I went to the check out, the price increased from ~340 to over 450.)
I look forward to being involved in this forum. To help round out the experience, does anybody have recommendations for other good GPS sites besides here and Garmin?
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the site! Be sure to check out the 'Getting Started' and 'FAQ' links at the top of the page.

Hi Bearing Guy.

I like gpstracklog.com, gpslodge.com, gpspassion.com, gpsreview.com, and gpsmagazine.com. I also check the reviews at CNet.com, Amazon.com, etc.

Garmin Nuvi, 750
Thanks in advance.
also my first GPS, so I hope to learn a lot from you and other 765T owners as we all get more experience.
at the moment, I am experimenting with sending routes that I have created at the MapQuest site to my 765T...not sure that I have it quite down pat just yet...going to try a route to work this morning that I laid out on MapQuest.
I have also played around with the TourGuide POI's and a couple Redlight ones.
I grabbed the Rest Areas POI's here for use on my trip from Pittsburgh to South Carolina and back, for the Christmas holiday.
you have chosen a great place here.
not only is this the best site that I have found for GPS info, I think it is one of the very best sites OF ANY KIND, that I have ever found.
Welcome aboard! Not as much content as this site, but I check it out every once in awhile.
You found a great place for information. You will learn more things than you ever thought possible
Hi and welcome,
I have been on this site for well over a year and I believe that you will not need another website for gps information.
You got that right!
Make yourself comfortable, and do a lot of reading and asking. The people here are very knowledgeable and helpful and will go the extra mile to help in any way.
Welcome to the family, it is nice to have you join us.
Thanks to everybody for the fast and thorough feedback. This will be fun. http://www.poi-factory.com/sites/all/modules/smileys/packs/n...
Talk to you later.
I am looking at the 765t also. Have heard mixed reviews so I would be interested in your opinion about it. I have a Nuvi 650 but I like the extras on the 765t, including the routing options, lane change, and free traffic services.
Bearing Guy,Glad you joined us, don't look for the rest because you have found the best,so just dive in.
I'll let you know. I've just borrowed a friend's Garmin 660 for a few days to compare things before mine arrives.
I think your analysis is spot on. Every choice in GPS seems to have an interesting balance of pro's versus cons.
It took me a while to learn that xxxT meant free traffic (w/ ad support) from Garmin. Once I compared the cost to ones w/o the traffic receiver & the subscription costs, it seemed like a good deal.
The link below has an extremely detailed review of the 765T if it's helpful to anyone.
it was very helpful to me in making up my mind to go with the 765T.
Welcome and enjoy and ask lots of questions! An older teacher once told me..."The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked". Have fun!
I'm a new GPS user myself and this site was very influential in my purchase. I'm learning alot here and I'm sure you will also.
