Default Nuvi 765T

Thinking about upgrading from a Nuvi 200W, anyone tried a Nuvi 765T ?, sounds like it might be nice.
Read lot of reviews, but no one using it like we might.

Default How did you like your Nuvi 200W

The title says it all. The 200W seems like a nice, low cost GPS. How did it work for motorcycle use?

200 works great, used it for 18 months, no problems at all, use ziplock bags in the rain, just wanting one that has Trip logs and multiple waypoints, without spending several hundred, good sales going on now.

Default Nuvi 765

I picked up a refurbished nuvi 765 from Amazon. I like the features, and now the price.

I wired it to the heated grip adapter, and have tried mounting it on handlebars and on Richland Rick's windshield GPS mount. Both RAM mounts.

Handlebar seems to work better due to intermittent power issues when attached to the windshield mount. I haven't figured the issue out yet. It can't be the mount, but maybe the more vertical orientation?

Next step is to check the solder joints on the power supply.

Anybody else have good/bad experiences with the 765?

Default Nuvi 760

I have been using a Nuvi 760 for about 5 years now and love it. It's not waterproof so I always keep a couple of sandwich bags and some rubberbands handy.

The 760 ( and probably the 765 ) has bluetooth. I have not used any type of headset via the bluetooth yet, but it's nice to pair the gps to my phone so that if I get a call I can see who is calling ( read as 'screen my calls so I can determine whether I want to stop and return the call or not ). I do see a Sena headset somewhere in my future, though.

The 760 supports routes and that is by far the biggest feature that I require in a gps.

ymmv

I have the 765T mounted via a Strombone from Pat Walsh. Wiring is to an unswitched circuit on my fuse box. Location is excellent as us visibility in harsh sun. Also noticed it works well without taking gloves off or using glove tips. Bluetooth to Sena headset works well. ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1356385078.235400.jpg

Very nice. I plan on doing the same. I also have this:
Amazon.com: Motorcycle / Bike waterproof Handlebar Mount: Electronics

that comes with a handlebar mount. Now I just need to find a way to use a ball mount instead.

Anyone have any suggestions?
