Summary: My husband got me a Nuvi 3790LMT GPS for Christmas - I was all excited and tried it out over the weekend & had questions, which I sort of expected because I have not used a GPS before. Oh well, that's what tech support is there for, right? Well, tech support at Garmin was not open on the weekend (sort of strange in this day & age).
Summary: I got this as a present for my other half. We had a TomTom before and wanted to get a new SatNav. This SatNav was taking us off motorways, down the sliproads and then back onto the motorway. We thought, the first time it happened, that it must have been a tiny glitch...but no...it kept doing it. These weren't new roads either. We are glad we kept our old TomTom as we started using this again and put this on eBay AVOID!!! BUY TOMTOM or anything else!
Nice Looks, Useless Navigation, not fit for purpose
11 August 2011
Summary: No I wouldn't get one again. Bought this unit because it would fit neatly in a pocket unlike the bulky TomTom units. That's as far as it went. The navigation is hopeless, some places it simply cannot navigate from at ALL!! (Hook Of Holland) claiming there is no route. It will ignore perfectly good motorways and use side roads when I have selected fastest route. It will constantly take me off a junction of a motorway, only to steer me straight back onto it again.
Summary: I bought the nuvi 3760T to replace a five year old nuvi 360. My main use for a sat nav is to guide me around the uk and the rest of europe, often towing a caravan. To avoid narrow roads you had the option, on the 360, to select a different vehicle type (e.g. motorbike, bicycle, truck, bus) - when towing I told the nuvi360 that I was drving a bus or a truck - it worked.
Summary: bought this to replace my 8 year old tom tom, it looks great and the screen quality is much better than tom tom but these were the only good points.. my first garmin nuvi 3760t was sent back after 2 weeks due to the map started to pixilate the turn itself into stanby mode, this happened about 3 times while driving on good clear mornings.
Summary: This is a great looking bit of kit with some very smart features. Sadly navigating around Cities isn't one of them. Do not attempt to drive through any major city in Europe or else you encounter the Garmin spin. In that once you stop moving the map display spins like a whirling Dervish in an attempt to relocate it's self. It just plainly can't navigate through even the lowest built up areas, and get's completely lost in anything above 3 story's.
