Destination entry on Garmin Nuvi 750

Auto Tech
[ MUSIC ] ^M00:00:07 >> [Brian Cooley:] Hey, folks, Brian Cooley here in a 2009 Nissan Rogue with a quick how-to on entering destinations and other sorts of basic tasks on its -- well -- that navigation system. You see, on the Rogue and on some other cars, they're starting to go toward basically a PND, a portable nav device, that is mounted on a special factory base -- kind of a hybrid of in-dash and roll your own. Either way let's see how it works. This happens to be a Garmin Nuvi 750, but these steps will be common to many Garmin models. "Where to?" is the first place you'll normally start. And of course "address" on the upper left, the most common way you'll go unless you're going to one of your favorites or going to go home -- they're right there. But the address is key. The touch screen works pretty well on this guy. First thing you want to do, it wants you to tell it what city you're going to. Predictive text gets me to a list as soon as it can figure that out. And of course house number is next, and of course because it knows what city that I'm in, it's not going to look for any streets that don't exist there, which is a good flow of the logic. Notice that it's a little bit wobbly up there, I mean, I'd like that to be a little stiffer because as I'm using touch screen input and I'm driving, I need the most stable base possible for precise, one-try input, which I'm not always getting here. But as you see I quickly got to the point where I say, "Yeah, take me there." Now notice this unit, because it's basically a retail PND, doesn't have any live traffic on it, so I'm not gonna have any of those options. It's not giving me options to do a whole lot of different choices of route on how I get there. I can't enter any way points or destinations along the way -- it's pretty basic navigation -- works well, but pretty basic. Now when you wanna stop the navigation -- because you're not going there anymore and it's beginning to annoy you yak yak yakking -- right back here on the home screen is "stop," and that makes it very easy to cancel out of your route. Under tools you'll find some important settings, including the brightness, which matters because it's up here underneath the glass -- so the display settings -- how you want to see your map -- the map view which you saw we had was 3D; we can also go to either "north up" or "direction up." Those are done here, again, under the settings menu. And finally here under this menu you've also got your media player if you want to use this thing to play media off a card you put in the side there, or if you want to use it as a picture viewer for God knows what reason, you can see it does that as well. So that's how you enter destinations, cancel navigation, and use a few other basic features on a Garmin Nuvi 750, as supplied as the navigation system in our 2009 Nissan Rogue. ^M00:02:36 [ MUSIC ]
