Garmin Nuvi 750 Review – Great GPS with a Wide Screen

The Garmin Nuvi 750 portable navigation system and GPS system is not a bad personal navigator and comes with some fantastic text-to-speech and location features that have been designed to help you find services near to you and your drive.  In addition to that, this Nuvi GPS has a very effective wide screen display plus a built-in transmitter.  If I had any complaints it would be that the route calculations can be a little slow, and the price point is high when compared to rival competitor products, or even similar Garmin models.

A better GPS for your money that rivals the Garmin Nuvi 750 for many of its features could be the Nuvi 600 series as these are renowned for having excellent GPS signal receivers.  One thing that is also very important is that if you do buy the Nuvi 750 then make sure you immediately download Garmin Nuvi 750 map updates direct from the manufacturer.

The Garmin maps on the Nuvi 750 are actually very good, so it’s a shame that the routing speeds can sometimes let it down.  Putting that aspect aside though, we love the anti-glare screen because this has been a common complaint amongst all users of GPS products when using in-car – that sometimes the sun can play havoc with the screen display.

Generally the Garmin Nuvi 750 GPS is getting around three out of five stars, which for a Garmin product is actually quite low.  However, when you compare this brand with other brands then they usually come out on top so don’t let that put you off their GPS products – after all they are the World leader and have a range of excellent products – which now even include sports watches and cycling computers for the more active users amongst you.

If you do decide to go ahead and purchase one then make sure you also buy some cheap Garmin map updates once in a while because being able to navigate successfully to your destination should not be compromised by out of date maps.

Overall the Garmin Nuvi 750 personal navigator is a decent enough GPS and at 4.8 inches wide really is one of the largest on the market – so will probably suit those with impaired vision or truck drivers who will have the GPS mounted onto a larger dashboard than a traditional car dash.  It also speaks the names of the streets very clearly so should not be discounted if you are in the market for a decent GPS device this year.
