The 760 comes with a power cable for your cigarette lighter, an adapter cable so you can download information from your computer and a suction mount for your dashboard. You're good to go with just the purchase but I also bought a friction pad which allows me to move the unit out of sight when I desire.

Everything you need is in the box. The windshield mount is included and all the cords are as well. You just take it out and plug it in. The first time you use it, be sure to have it outside so the satellite can get a clear connection to it. Be sure to get the 760 and not the 750. The 750 doesn't have bluetooth, plus the 750 is being discontinued.

EVERYTHING! The unit, of course, charger cord for car, also doubles for real-time traffic navigation available at additional cost of $60 for the entire year. Has saved us countless hours which would otherwise have been spent in gridlock - HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Also includes suction cup for mounting to windshield/dash, USB to connect for downloads/charging on the computer. Does not include carrying case, but can buy cheap at Radio Shack, Staples, Walmart, etc. First 760 cost $600 about 2 years ago. Just bought a 2nd one from Walmart for $250 for C'mas.

You should download the Manual from Garmin.com. I found it answered a lot of questions that I had before I even turned it on.
The manual tells you to use an unused frequency on the cars FM radio. I used the automatic feature and it told me the frequency to tune the radio to.

You should program a frequency on your car stereo with no active radio station. You can clearly listen to the built-in MP3 player through your car speakers and automatically cut off the music whenever you get a cellphone call via bluetooth. Radio frequencies with existing stations will just make all sounds distorted or you might not be able to hear anything at all.

As far as receiving the call through the car speakers, we found placement of the Garmin to be a factor. There was slight feedback when mounted close to the radio, but when we moved it to the drivers side, left corner of the dash, the microphone worked better and the feedback was minimal. We prefer the Bluetooth headset for calling, but when it is left at home or not charged, this is a nice option. Also, older cars tend to be noiser, but hearing through the car speaker, you can control the volume.

We found the voice quality to be respectable - it helps to keep the windows closed and the heater/ac fans off during calls to minimize interference. It does sound like being on a speaker phone, but comes across clear. Considering the safety of calling hands-free, it is worth it - just be sure to find a radio channel that isn't being used and it works fine.

I've found the audio quality of the phone throught the Nuvi 760 to be good, as long as the user articulates a little more than usual conversation. (It is a speaker phone, so there'll be reverb or echo based on the vehicle interior space.) I have run the most recent free download from the Garmin website, which included a fix for better Bluetooth telephone function. I also mount the unit high on the windshield beside the rearview mirror, which probably optimizes michrophone and speaker performance.
