I saw that Camping World was selling them but Amazon was still taking orders. (posting so you can say how good it is. I have a few months before we go for our "long trip" where we will need it.

Mine was shipped today and should arrive early next week! Traded in my almost new 660 and got attractive credit.

I just bought a 660 for $250. I like the latest and greatest, but wasn't sure the 770 was worth $150 more. I hope I don't regret my decision!

Trade in? Wow that's cool. Wonder if they would take my old 920 GO?

Mine came yesterday (preordered Amazon). It starts up quickly and the wifi update is much nicer than plugging into a computer. Voice commands work as advertised. The interface is straightforward and doesn't require a manual to figure out. It even offers hints about features from time to time. I haven't driven with it yet but all indications so far indicate it's a winner.



The dealer added an extra accessory port on the driver side (their suggestion and a good one at that). Made installation a breeze.

Read the manual. Or you might be going to the right place the wrong way.

Holding out on a few more reviews before taking the plunge. Right now there's only three or four on Amazon, and they're not real positive. Once any of you have a chance to toy with them, it would be nice to know if the reviews ring true or not. Their issues could have been operator error. Couple biggies was -drops Bluetooth with iPhone7; -won't do live traffic with iPhone7; -won't work with Basecamp.
Just wondering other's experience.

Received ours last week. I did the setup and input the coach values for trip planning. Then went through the updates (which takes a long time, even on a fast internet). I've played with it a little on the route planning, and took it on the street in my car, and so far, it looks like a winner.

We have a trip scheduled in about 2 weeks, so I will hopefully get some more ideas just what this is capable of. One feature I do like is the BT tie in to my cell phone. I still have to play around a little with that but it might allow hands free phone use.

I'm trying to decide on the friction pad to mount it on top of the dash where I don't have to look down towards the radio to see it. I don't think that will be too much of a distraction if I can get it to sit right in front of me.

I found a neat way to mount it in my car. I use the suction cup mount on the tach (it's an automatic so I don't really need it.
