I concur 110%. Had a 265T and then a 765T and now an 885T for the last week, $260 USD. New. There are a bunch of refurbs for $220 or so. Much better touch registration, cleaner screen display, faster, better voice volume, among other things. Without the upgraded ROM 4.70 installed, you will indeed probably have issues with this model though. Voice Control seems as good as my Toyota Venza SAT NAV unitas well, however there is not limitation on area coverage, RAM is much faster than the DVD-ROM in the car, and updates do not cost $200!
So far, I recommend the 885T highly. I would hate losing the voice control function down the road.
PROS: as indicated plus bluetooth. I have a 16g microSD card and it holds my European City Navigator maps, plus music. It supports MP3, Flac and wave music files. Voice activation is fantastic.
CONS: doesn't support WMA music files. I've had a Street Pilot III and still have and use a SP 2610. Speed if the 885T is better than those, but still could be faster. Doesn't support BT music from smartphone.
