New Garmin nuvi GPS units
Garmin has pulled the wraps off three new handheld GPS units, the nuvi 750, 760 and 770. Beginning the company's new 700 series, common features include voice guidance, posted highway speeds, a 4.3-inch widescreen touch display, and an FM transmitter to send audio to car speakers. Also notable is a connection with the car mount, which will automatically mark a car's position when the nuvi is removed.
The 760 and 770 are equipped for Bluetooth dialing, hands-free or via the touchscreen, and have an FM traffic receiver to avoid jams. The 750 and 760 include maps of Canada, the US and Puerto Rico, while the 770 adds Europe to the mix. All three nuvis should ship in September for $600, $800 and $1,000.
