A friend of mine purchased one at Costco, up here in Canada for $230CDN. And as he isn't a computer guy I have done all the updates etc for him. He purchased some RAM mount items to mount on his R1200CL. He did discover that the Bluetooth functions on both playing MP3's & for directions during navigation (interrupts MP3) although Garmin help told him it didn't support that function.
I have found that loading routes from Mapsource, I could only load one(1) at a time. We contacted Garmin Help & they said you have to load one(1) route, then import them from within the 765T, then load the next route etc, according to Garmin Help. I haven't had a chance to verify yet.
My friends thinking on this unit is if it lasts a year or so & fails, he can buy another one.
