    I currently have the Dezl560 and love it.

    Is the Dezl760 alot better?

    If anyone has any experience with each of them is it worth it to upgrade to the 760?

    Thanks

    a 5 inch screen vs. a 7 inch screen. any other differences? i doubt it.

    but the bigger the screen. the more your cab lights up at night.

    i like driving in the dark. and don't like my face being lit up at the scales.

    Do you have experience with both units to know the only difference is screen size?

    Not looking for someone's guess's looking for facts please.

    The screen on my 560 will adjust to completely dark if I want it to so lighting is not an issue.

    I can tell you that the speech recognition may sound like a gimmick, but after using it extensively with my car GPS, I can tell you that it is extremely useful.

    That feature alone has the 720 at the top of my very short list of truck GPSes.

    I can tell you that one of the main reasons for me was the larger screen size. I just bought the 760 last week after having some time finding oil lease sites. I also bought the OilTrax Topo software and plan to be using it this week when I get back to work.

    Used the unit on the way home the other day, and have to say the lane assist and live traffic function is sure nice!

    Any follow-up?

    I work in the AB oilpatch too. I currently have two Garmins (Nuvi 255W & 50), but have thought about getting the 760 and Oiltrax. Can you enter multiple waypoints? (The 255 will, the 50 will not).
