    I have both. Garmin 765 and TT920. I use the TT most of the time. Main reason is that I am more familiar with how to operate it. I use TYRE to create and load routes into it (Garmn as well).
    Some say that the TT is not as accurate or fast as the Garmin but I honestly can't say that I have noticed. One thing for sure is that the TT works better in Europe than the Garmin (faster and more accurate). Both do have issues from time to time with not showing roads even if the roads have been there for years.
    There are those that will swear by one or the other but really, it depends on what you expect/need. Either one works good in my hands.
