Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 775T 4.3" Widescreen Bluetooth Auto GPS Navigator w/3-D building view, photo navigation and lane assist:
It can take up to a minute or two to acquire satellites even when sitting in the middle of a parking lot exposed to the open sky. In a short 1.5 hour drive from San Francisco to Palo Alto starting with a full charge, the battery was almost drained by the time I reached my destination. Sometimes, when starting out on a journey, it says to "follow the marked route" but instead of the thick pink line that usually shows up, a squirrelly cyan line shows up and it doesn't seem to quite follow any of the roads. This makes for some confusion. After the car moves a couple of hundred feet, the expected thick pink line shows up. I don't know why this is. Also, the Lane Assist feature works only for major highways. In the back roads where there are forks in the road, it doesn't work so well. Also, even not asked to divert around traffic, it seemed to direct me on a roundabout route instead of the most direct route even when driving around midnight when the roads and highways are devoid of any traffic. The traffic delay feature provides a little icon with the amount of time of the delay but it seems to be rather inaccurate and useless. Other than the above caveats, it appears to work mostly as advertised. Entering locations with street addresses was a breeze. Thus far, I've tested it on a trip from San Francisco to Palo Alto, within Palo Alto, to Milpitas to Palo Alto and back to San Francisco. It worked quite well, even when I missed a couple of turns due to the use of back roads (as discussed above) and it had to recalculate a new route for me.
