have not used new 770 much but on a trip yesterday I found the routing hopeless taking me inappropriate and baffling routed on a straightforward journey. also when I hit HOME it froze on two occasions and I had to restart it.

decidedly unimpressed

Nuvi 760 working fine here without freezing. What firmware do you have?

Actually thinking about it i have suffered quite a few odd routing problems. Some map based, like being taken through bridle paths and brick walls and some routing engine based where it takes me round the back of houses instead of the obvious route down a main road.....

Funny, since getting the 760 i haven't had to use it half as much as i used to use my i3.... I loved my i3 but my 760 has rather knocked my enthusiasm for Sat nav some what. Sort of wish i'd tried a TomTom..... Crying or Very sad

have just updated this afternoon from 2,20 to 2.70

now, you live near me, I traveled from norbury to mitcham and then to purley - all the time it wanted ne to take a route west - crazy!

also it could not find the address on unit but on mapsource it found it strright away Errrrrr......

I have looked at setup and can see nothing wrong, fastest route etc... automobile. there is no truck (motorhone) setting on nuvi

glad I still have my 2610 - no wonder they still make good money on flea bay

2.7 here too....

What route does it take you from Norbury to Mitcham to Purley?

Norbury to Mitcham does mean going South West, but Mitcham to Purley is South East

There do seem to be some big difference between v9 and v10 (2008).
