Garmin Nuvi 705 Series with Lane Assist Technology
705 series all have Lane Assist and includes - Nuvi 755T, 765T, 775T and 785T
Lane Assist has got to be one of the best features found on specific Garmin Nuvi GPS devices. How many times have you been driving on a multilane highway and miss your exit because it was on the opposite side from where you were driving? Not all exits are to the right hand side of the highway so you may have to cross several lanes of traffic to get to the left hand side. Then there are those exits that are more a split in the road and there is no opportunity to zip to the correct lane. Right on the display you will see realistic road signs with arrows showing you exactly how to navigate the exit.
The Garmin Nuvi 705 series include this vital feature. The series include the 755T, the 765T, the 775T and the 785T.

What is Lane Assist?
I have not mentioned that the Nuvi 705 series also includes the features similar to other Garmin Nuvi GPS units. You will have another MP3 player; you will have an unbelievable number of Points of Interest (POI); your photos will have another home where they can be shared; the features are rounded out by a calculator, currency converter, an SD card slot and an anti-theft feature.
You can see that the Garmin Nuvi 705 series is much like other Nuvi series but the Lane Assist sets it apart. I remember a specific trip to an Iowa airport. There were no landmarks – all looked the same to me – field after field after field. I stopped at a little corner station and was told that the interstate was a few mile ahead and to take the west entrance. That was great except once I was back on the road I did not know which way West was. I sweated it out for over half an hour until I was sure that I had taken the correct entrance. I made my flight on time but this story could have turned out so differently.
