what the Bestest Bad A??ed Garmin available

 

I have been looking at the garmin page I need to either give my 1390T to my wife and replace it or I take it and put it under the back tired and give it a proper reTIREment (ha burn out humor) cool , but in either case I want to REPLACE IT.

So what is the best, bad A??ed Garmin available.

Is it the 3790LMT or is there something better. I Travel 100% of the time (Thats why I don't post)been to almost all the States, I have 6 left and I will be going to 2 of them in a month or so and with in another year I will have been to every state in the union (Already did Alaska and Hawaii twice).

I need a Garmin unit that works everytime, everywhere Like my windows phone no matter where I am I hit the Map button and look it finds me.

Garmin 3597 LMTHD

That's very subjective

The 37xx's are pretty, but I understand they can't route as yet, and have other issues to boot.

I'd hit the Garmin page, put in the features you need, and then make a choice.

I would say look at the garmin nulink 1695 it has an internet connection now it is a subscripition after a while but you can look up weather gas prices and it gives quicker traffic.

Garmin Nuvi 1695

Maybe you would like that Garmin Nuvi 1695. With a 5 inch screen and connected services, it might be worth a closer look. Add the Lifetime Map Updates and you should be all set!

i'd find either an 7X5 0r 8X5

Both of these units are very good units. Both have had some problems but things seemed to have settled down in the pas year or so. The units have MP3 and Audible Books if you're inclined.

I've got the 885 which, along with that series is discontinued, but you can still find refurbs. The 755/65 is also a solid performer.

I agree with the 765

I have found the 765 to be solid and do a good job. You might still find them on Ebay. A friend just got one after doing lots of reserch on models. He did not find the newer models better.

I have a 755 but it does not

I have a 755 but it does not have "My Trends" or Bluetooth. You'll have to determine if you nedd them

Unit that Works everytime

Well, my streetpilot c330 and c580 work everytime. Still have several hours of battery left too. They have a small screen but I know they will work. The c330 can't put any of the new maps on the internal drive anymore and you will have to use a sd card as well.

I got a nuvi 760 that my wife uses because of the multi route addition. It works most of the time okay, but several times it just appears "dead" and won't power up. I have to charge it on the computer for a while. The battery is gone. This has only happened two or three times in the past three? years, but it is enough to make me not use it for work.

Some of the older Garmins are the most reliable, even if they don't have all the new features, imo.

My experiences

I just changed over to a 2360LMT from a 755T that I had been using for many years. I was very happy with the 755T but the wife was wanting a GPS and I was looking for something with new maps since I travel a lot. I went for the 2360 because it runs like a 3790, but I didn’t want to pay for the multi-touch screen, nor did I feel I needed the 3D maps (though they did look neat when I was playing with my mom’s 3790).

Here is a breakdown on what I like about the 2360:
Dual orientation (vertical mode makes it easy to place in a cup holder if you don’t want to setup the mount)
More info displayed on map (4 data fields instead of 2 on 755)
Bluetooth – I have tried it out a little and it worked okay
Voice command – Doesn’t work everything on the GPS and has a hard time with “walmart” but was nice to use driving in traffic on my last trip
Seems to get a fix faster (noticed this leaving the rental car parking garage on a trip last week)
Uses micro-USB cable – though I didn’t know it when I bought it (now I can carry one cable that will hook either my blackberry or the GPS to my computer
Map updates – I never know where I am going to get sent for work until the call comes in so having a somewhat up to date map is nice to have.

The main reason I was holding onto the 755 was for the MP3 player, but I have not used that feature in a long time. I do like the sliding on/off switch on the 755 over the push button on the 2360.

Overall either of those GPS units would be a good option, though the 755 is older; but it has seen me through trips to 48 states. The Garmin product finder (where you can check boxes for the features you want) is a great tool on their website to help you narrow down what you are looking for.

nüvi 760

When I lost my 760 I looked at the newer models, researched what they can do and the various issues associated with them.

I replaced the unit with another 760. It does everything I want and does it well. I couldn't see any reason at all to replace the one I lost with a different model. Price wasn't a consideration - I could have purchased whatever model I wanted. None of the newer models offered anything to entice me away from the 760.

Whole lotta nothing

I saw a Garmin 265 for 89.00 There are a lot of features you can get but to be honest do you really need them?

What IS The Bestest Bad A??ed Garmin Available?

Some do and some don't. When I was working my previous job, I really liked multi stop routing on the Garmin Street Pilot 2730. Since I have retired from that job, I don't need that feature any longer. I have traffic on my Garminfone. I didn't think that I would every need it, want it, or use it. Ironically, there have been a few times lately when I have been glad that I have it! But, yes, for many people, something simple that takes you from Point A to Point B is all that you need.

garmin stopped making one

garmin stopped making one with an mp3 player :/
