I have been using the Garmin Nuvi 660 for the past few years and have made a decision to upgrade to the new Garmin Nuvi 760 yesterday. Both 660 and 760 models continue to be available in the market and it can often be a pretty daunting task choosing relating to the two. The 760 is about $100 bucks more expensive compared to older model, however, for those for frequently use their GPS navigator, well then, i'll say that the 760 is really worth its price. It has all of the function of the Garmin 760 and even more. Here is a quick list of the new and improved functions that comes with the new 760 model.

In the newest Garmin 760, one of the biggest improvements show up in the fonts used to display the street names. Although this may seem to be a small change, nevertheless the new font has greater visibility when compared to the one in the older model. While using new font, the street names can be deciphered through the quick glance while driving.

In the older model, the zoom mode is rather a nightmare. When zoomed in around the 660 models, the road that you will be on is magnified much that it makes it hard to see the other streets nearby. As a result the zoom feature pretty useless in places in which you need to make several turns within short distances. This flaw was fixed in the new Garmin Nuvi 760. When zoomed in on 3D mode, the magnification in adjusted so that you can still easily view all of the other roads nearby.

The new Garmin 760 contains a sleek and cleaner design. Unlike the 660, the newest model does not have an antenna. It is usually much easier to mount and dismount the navigator from the stand. The power socket on the new model is additionally conveniently relocated on the bottom of the unit, rendering it much easier to plug the charger in.
