    I have had the 560 LMT truck satnav for about 18 months and it is an excellent device (slightly smaller screen than the 760 but still bigger than most car versions). However, before buying the 560 or 760 at a discounted price, Funsters might like to consider that Garmin have recently launched the 570 and 770 updated versions. I don't know how long lifetime updates will continue on the 560/760 although they are still listed models on Garmin's website. I have just been notified that there is a new map update for mine (note to self - download it tonight).

    770 seems to be a truck version?

    Can anyone tell me if its possible to input your destination via longtitude and latitude please? We tend to use this method quite a lot when travelling in Europe to find our way to the next aire we want to visit.

    On Garmin satnav yes!, and you get a choice of three formats for the co-ordinates

    No mention of speed camera's guess this must be an "extra". Our local store still has this Garmin in stock and I'm very tempted.

    Speed cameras are an extra, all Europe including UK £25 per annum extra. (check for some of the smaller eastern exclusions if you are really adventurous). Speed cameras take account of French and other bans on camera locations by having safety zones.

    My 560 LMT has speed cameras on it - as delivered when I bought it in 2013. There is a charge to keep it updated though.

    Now been reduced to £179.99 in my store, not sure if this a local reduction or nationwide.
    Half a mind to take my £199.99 unit back for a refund and buy again with a £20 saving....'tis a Scottish thing!

    570 looks interesting, you can add a wireless rearview camera as well and switch between screens.. Sounds fine if it works! :)

    Camera is a BC 20 aprox £110
