Garmin nuvi 785T Portable Automotive GPS System with Lane Assist & MSN Direct
Stay ahead of the curve and connected with the Garmin nuvi 785T, featuring lane assist and MSN Direct content. The 785T guides you to the proper lane for navigation while delivering real-time local weather, traffic, movie times, stock information, gas prices, news and local events. It also includes lifetime traffic, hands-free calling, preloaded maps and turn-by-turn directions that call out street names. Like the rest of the nuvi 705-series, this advanced navigator comes with premium features including 3-D building view, photo navigation, faster screen redraws, route planning, emergency and car locators and much more.
Know the Lane Before It's Too Late
nüvi 785T takes navigation to the next level with lane assist. No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.
Get Enhanced MSN Direct
With next-generation dynamic content from MSN Direct, nuvi 785T is one resourceful personal travel assistant. Using the included receiver and free trial service to MSN Direct, you can check the weather, avoid traffic backups, compare local gas prices, get enhanced movie listings, stock information, news and local events when you travel with your unit. Even plan trips from the convenience of your computer, via Windows Live Local, and wirelessly send locations to nüvi 785T.
Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nuvi 785T's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where to?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps of the United States and Canada, over 6 million points of interest (POIs) and features digital elevation maps and 3-D building view in some areas to help you orient yourself with your surroundings. You can also upload custom points of interest (POIs). With HotFix satellite prediction, nuvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker, and its ultra-fast map redraw ensures a smooth user interface.
Make Hands-free Calls
For hands-free calling, nuvi 785T integrates A2DP Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 785T while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nuvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest. Even listen to high-quality stereo music on your headset with A2DP Bluetooth technology.
Find Yourself, Your Car
Keep track of yourself and your car with nuvi 785T. Just tap the "Where Am I?" emergency locator to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. nuvi 785T even remembers where you parked. It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate with nuvi on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots such as amusement parks, stadiums and malls.
nuvi 785T includes advanced navigation features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 785T's wide screen. In addition, nuvi 785T automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.
With nuvi 785T's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read - from any direction.
Take It With You
Like the rest of the nuvi 705-series, nuvi 785T sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot.

Garmin nuvi 705 Series Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the nuvi 705 series? How is it different from the nuvi 700 series?
A: The nuvi 705 series consists of the nuvi 755T, nuvi 765T, nuvi 775T and nuvi 785T. It is similar to the 700 series (models 750, 760, 770 & 780) but upgrades the mapping detail to include 3D buildings, lane assist, and photo navigation features, includes lifetime traffic (765T & 775T only), and doubles waypoint storage from 500 to 1000.
Q: What are the differences in the nuvi 7x5 series models?
A: The nuvi 755T is the base model; the nuvi 765T adds Bluetooth; the nuvi 775T adds maps of Europe to the 765T; and the nuvi 785T includes Bluetooth and an MSN Direct receiver, upgrading the basic traffic on the 765T (though MSN Direct only comes with three months free, not lifetime).
Q: What options do I have for live traffic on a nuvi 705 series model?
A: The nuvi 755T, 765T and 775T all come with an FM traffic receiver, providing real-time road alerts in major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Plus, all nuvi 705 series models allow the user to upgrade to the GDB 55 MSN Direct Receiver. In addition to live traffic, MSN Direct also provides enhanced content such as weather forecasts, gas prices, movie times, local events, news tickers and more. The MSN Direct receiver is an improvement on the basic receiver that comes with the 765T model, and is included with the nuvi 785T.
Q: What is the "3D Buildings" feature?
A: In some major metropolitan areas, the 3D map view also includes a 3D rendering of the buildings in the area. This is especially useful in large cities, as it allows the user to get a feel for his or her surroundings. This way, the map will show you when to expect to pass a skyscraper, stadium, or an unusual building cluster.
Q: What is the "lane assist" feature?
A: On most major multi-lane roads, such as interstate highways, the 3D map view will show a realistic graphic rendering of road signs at critical junctures, such as when lanes split or exits are approaching. This way, the user knows what lane to be in to continue on the planned route, a must when driving busy highways!
Q: What's the difference between the nuvi 205 series and the nuvi 705 series?
A: The nuvi 700 series is Garmin's high-end offering. To illustrate the difference, we can compare a nuvi 765T to a nuvi 265WT. Both are pre-loaded with U.S. & Canada maps, give text-to-speech voice prompts, have 4.3" screens, Bluetooth, and included traffic receivers. The nuvi 760, however, also has multiple-point routing and multiple-route storage - the nuvi 265WT can only go A-to-B with one stop in between, while the nuvi 760 will allow the user to input any number of addresses, sort them, and save the trip in its memory. Thus the 760 is a better choice for real estate agents and traveling salespeople, as well as users who want more control over their routes. Plus, only the nuvi 705 series has 3D buildings and lane assist. The nuvi 760 also has multimedia features, including an MP3 player, audio book player, FM transmitter, and headphone jack, allowing the user to listen to music or literature in the car or on foot.
