Display resolution with increased pixel density is commonly a waste or sort of an electronics race gimmick. Especially when eyes get older and the display is viewed at a greater distance than we can differentiate pixels. I'm quite sure even the 760 at arms length or more where it is commonly viewed was already past our ability to differentiate.

FWIW ... the smartphone thing is a change to traffic service that I noticed newer GPS releases seemed to have in place of the former built in standalone capability. This could be enough to make some people want the 760 over the 770. We seldom travel where there's been traffic services anyhow so I simply didn't care. Though I do wonder what the story is with traffic services.

The 4 years span typically equates to speed. Such as faster; startups, bus, memory and USB. To me this is priceless ... however I doubt it matters much in regular use other than possibly saving an occasional missed turn or optimal re-route calculation after missing a turn. The thing I noticed was the Topo map transfers were blazing fast compared to my old GPS! Like minutes (under an hour) vs. several hours (overnight)!

Things I miss: hot dock cradle vs. plugging in USB cable and the elevation stat on the main routing screen appears to be missing.
