Using the included receiver and free trial service to MSN Direct, you can check the weather, avoid traffic backups, compare local gas prices, get enhanced movie listings, stock information, news and local events when you travel with your unit. Even plan trips from the convenience of your computer, via Windows Live Local, and wirelessly send locations to nüvi 780.
FM transmitter allows users to wirelessly transmit audio, including MP3s, phone calls and audio books, through the vehicle's stereo.
Bluetooth wireless technology in the nuvi 780 offers up hands-free calling when paired with compatible phones. Simply tap nuvi's screen to dial or
answer calls and then speak directly into the unit's built-in microphone.

call history log that shows calls received, calls dialed and calls missed (for supported phones). If you need a phone number for your destination,
easily find and dial it from nuvi's points of interest database, which includes hotels, restaurants, stores and much more. [See www.garmin.com/bluetooth list of compatible phones.]
