Garmin nüvi 755T

I picked up a Garmin nüvi 755T earlier today from Future Shop during its Web Deal of the Day. While the original $549 price was inflated, it was marked down to $249, which was a steal.

I’ve found my iPhone’s Google Maps and GPS capabilities to be two of its most useful, but really shouldn’t be used while driving. I’d been on the lookout for a GPS unit, but wasn’t impressed with the around $300 prices for a mid-end unit.

The 755T is a 4.3″ widescreen unit with built in FM traffic updates, although that apparently only works in Toronto and Montreal for the time being. Still, lane assist and a smooth user interface should make it more enjoyable to use than a lower end model.
