Looked at another map later and the route I took was way out of my way and we probably lost two hours gong that way. In Upper Michigan, it actually routed me to a trail. It kept saying "Turn left". It was truly a wide spot in the trees with a grass hiking trail. When I passed the turn, it kept trying to get me to turn around and go back to it for several miles before recalculating.
Another feature is supposed to be real-time traffic information. It kept warning me of things that weren't there, yet never warned me about obvious long term issues. In one case, the freeway was closed and traffic routed into the other side, bypassing a bridge replacement. Garmin kept flashing a red screen warning me I was gong the wrong way on the freeway.
It is a nice unit with hands free speaker phone and voice commands, just be careful of the routing and don't take every turn as gospel.

I had the RV770 first, but it was not accurate. I would be on an interstate, and it would think I was on a parallel road or in a lake! Returned it and got the RV660 which has been much better. Reviews on the RV660 were much better than the RV760/770.
