Agreed...way off topic.

With the new world economy there may be a lot of users who won't be able to afford buying a new GPS every year or so. This update might come in very handy to a lot of users.

I seems to me that a real "revolutionary" model would be for GPS manufactures to move to a service model. Get users to subscribe to a yearly fee for map updates and basically give the hardware away for free (or basically free). The real competitive advantage for these companies is the software (maps and user interface).

The road to innovation isn't paved at all.

Sorry off topic still.... Way back on page 1 GatorGuy said:

> Garmin has addressed many of the issues that owners have
> complained about.....ability to customize the data to display on
> the map screen

Just noticed this comment. Which of the new line up allows this? I've got a nuvi 660, which must be coming up to 3 years old now, and this is my biggest disappointment with it. Each time a new model comes out I download the manual and see if it mentions customising the limited display on the front page but haven't seen a mention of it yet.

The 7x5 series and yes, definitely OT, here are the topics where you want to discuss that -> Will the 7x5 / 2x5 features ever trickle down ? or [TOPIC] Garmin Nuvi 7x5 - 3D, Signs - User Reviews

Doubt it, but we can't help with that, it's a question for Garmin, keep us posted!

Actually you're going to have to wait a bit, spoke to Garmin France yesterday and it turns out it has been delayed until early 2009 for some reason. Remember you read it here first like the original news about nüvi Lifetime ;-)

Actually it should be available for all Garmin systems starting with SP C500, I think they need to be compatible with the NT format, isn't that in the first message ? I'll check...Nope it wasn't must have been dicsussed later on, added as Q5!

GemRo311.
I have to tell you: After using the new 765 with the new and improved interface, faster processor, faster search capability, new pop out info tab on street searches, lane assist, etc. you may change your mind. Just the faster processor and new interface imo has drastically improved on the functionality of the 7xx series. I've had the 760 for about a year and I'm talking from experience! It's a drastic difference in a very good way.

Anyone on these forums knows my biggest "annoyance" is the lack of upto date maps from Garmin. Once a year updates just doesn't cut it

I'll check this out Shody. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

GPSPassion..Is there any reason for this "delay"?

Well no, if not I wouldn't have written "for some reason" ;-) My guess is that they want to make it start at the beginning of the year, hopefully the 2009.1 maps or whatever they call them, will actually be 2009 maps, no more of that gap, as we had with CN 2008 (2006) and CN 2009 (2007)...

Thanks for answering my off topic question. And it worked. I'm smitten and looking at a 775. Now back on topic:

Can you only buy the numaps lieftime with a new unit or at any time? In other words is there any reason to hang on to buy the 775 until the numaps lifetime comes out in early 2009? Or can I buy a 775 now, which will come with NT2009 Europe presumably (I'm in UK), and then pay for numaps lifetime in a years time when NT2010 comes out?
