Default 8703e and Nuvi 660

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have only had my 8703e for about a week or so and absolutely love it. Rec'd my Nuvi 660 Bluetooth GPS in the mail yesterday and it pairs flawlessly with my BB. Very simple to do as well (a bonus for me). Love the touch interface on the Nuvi, which includes the phone.

For those considering a GPS in tandem with their BB, this might be a unit to look at.

Thanks to all that post here, as most of my Q's re the BB have been answered.

That's a relief! I just ordered my Nuvi yesterday. Unfortunately, when I went to the Sprint store yesterday they were out of the 8703e, so I picked up a Krazr to hold me over for a few days until they get it in, then I'll swap it out for the BB.
How do you like the Nuvi??

Curious why you two bought the 660. Did you try the GPS programs like Wayfinder or Telenav? What features did you feel the Nuvi added?

I'm really liking the Nuvi, especially with the larger, wider screen (I have older, tired eyes). Used a Streetpilot III for a long time and this unit is much better in all aspects, in my opinion.

Pretty much agree with all the current reviews on the unit, including the fact that it is a tad expensive. The manual is on CD, which isn't an issue because it's not really needed except for a couple thing (FM transmitter). I have yet to add an MP3 playlist, but a search gave pretty good instuctions for a how-to. The reall bonus is that everything worked out of the box including the pairing with my BB. That process took about 2 minutes (only have 100 in my contact list). Also, have a 1 GB aftermarket coming from a buy on Ebay. $30 compared to OEM at $90 plus. A friend uses the same aftermarket card and has no issues with it.

I also got the travel guide disk ($70) which, for my use, will be a bonus. The Nuvi 660 is dubbed the "Travel Assistant" and it is exactly that.
