Just picked up a 765t and can't find where you enable or disable waas. Does anyone know if it is auto enabled or do they just hide it well on this model?
It's not available on your unit. It isn't on the 7x0 series either. Supposedly, Garmin is using a sensitive enough chip to not need WAAS.
I had WAS on my old Street Pilot and it did not help. To my understanding there two fix-point receivers that compare the calculated location from the satellites with that fix location. Then it sends that difference back. One is on the east cost and the other on the west cost. Until they add more fix locations the accuracy is not that helpful.
The reason I asked is I have a 360 and 550 that are right on with my home address when I reach it. The 765t wants me to go another 60 feet or so.
It has a lot of nice features over the others though. I'll keep playing with it.
If you are using a street address instead of coordinates to test this, it could be a difference in map versions or even a difference in the software algorithm used to extrapolate specific house numbers. You could test this out if you have all your units turned on in the same location. Look up the coordinates on each unit and jot them down, then plot the coordinates on google maps to see how far apart the actual coordinates are between the 3 Garmins.
Do all three have the same Map Versions installed? Address locations/inadequacies are usually due to addresses being in a range per block. That part has been explained many times before.
Just like on Google where geocoding produces an inaccurate location for an address a block to even several miles off.
Yes, my 360 and 765 have the latest update. I'll check coordinates later today..
The 765t has my home on the opposite side of the street. (wrong side) after downloading all updates while the 360 is correct. so much for accuracy.
