The nuvi 770 comes preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for North America and Europe.
The nuvi 770 is packaged with Garmin's FM traffic receiver, which allows users to avoid traffic congestion, accidents and road construction. Traffic services are now available in 68 major metropolitan areas in the US and Canada. Traffic receiver includes a 3-month free trial subscription.
The nuvi 770 offer Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling when paired with compatible phones.

If a user needs a phone number for their destination, they can easily find and dial it from nuvi's points of interest database, which includes hotels, restaurants, stores and much more.
