New Nuvi Series - Is there really much extra?

I did a product compare on the Garmin website between the Nuvi 670, 750, 760, 770 and cannot say that the new series seems to offer a heck of a lot more...

Also the specs for the Nuvi 750, 760, 770 seem damned near identical.

Or is it just me...?

Why to use .csv not the .gpx ?? or the other way ..
Which one is better with less error..??
If I want to go for a file with huge no. of poi which format shall I go with..??

POI confusion

New GPS owner, and confused. I drive a motor coach and it would be helpful if I could add files to my GPS which will result in specific "points of interest" (to me) being depicted along the interstate as I drive. I have created some waypoints using EasyGPS and uploaded them to the POI folder on my C550.

Getting the latitude and longitude from my C330 saved location.

Some addresses just don't take me to the exact spot I want to go to. When I do arrive at the intended destination I save it to my garmin C330. My question is. Is there any way to get a latitude and longitude? I want these exact numbers to add to my custom poi files.

Can I download POI's on the Garmin 200W

Also where do I download .bmp Icons.

GPS thefts are soaring

Here's a scary article about the increase in GPS thefts from cars, even as prices fall. As a long time resident of Philadelphia I've learned not to even leave a few cents of loose change visible. The article mentions that even the telltale suction cup ring is tipping off some thieves to go on a scavenger hunt in your car.

TomTom told me that Verizon won't work on bluetooth

I bought a TomTom 720 but it won't work with my VX8300 Verizon phone. I called TomTom and they told me Verizon phones will not work because Verizon does not allow it. Any different thoughts on it before I return the 720? I live in New jersey.
