Summary: The battery will not survive being unplugged at all. And it will not charge from the car charger. You have to charge it on a wall charger at home, and them immediately plug it into your cigarette lighter. So, the logistics of keeping the battery going have basically offset any convenience of having it. Waste of my money.
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 bought this as a replacement for Nuvi 705 because the blue tooth function suddenly became dysfunctional on the 705. So far, I've learned to hate the thing. It's just frustration. The device behaves in erratic matter. Sometimes it wants to display all the street names. Some times it does not display names of several street on the screen and only display major street name that is many blocks away, even in "more detail" setting.
Summary: I ordered the wrong part number and did not get the unit I wanted. When the GPS arrived I turned it on to try the voice program and found this was the wrong model. The same day I received this I asked to exchange but was told once I turn it on it's mine. I was so pissed I did not purchase again from Amazon for almost a year.
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!
Summary: Looks great That's where it ends. Reboots randomly and also when recalculating a route. Traffic data is very poor and intermittent. Routing is sometimes ludicrous, why drive across London at 9 o'clock in the morning? It now doesn't output any sound in the vehicle mount when on external power. I've tried all Garmin's upgrades and resets its never fixed anything. Don't Waste your Money.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older Garmin that had performed well. I chose it because it enabled me to plan road trips with multiple way points. In practice the feature was not very user friendly. I also agree with some other reviewers who point to dubious routes when the device is set to Faster time - some of these have been down extremely narrow lanes. Also there is one whole motorway junction missing from the M62 near Liverpool even on the latest maps.
I Wish I Could Say This Is a Good Sat Nav ( it isnt )
9 July 2012
Summary: Had this for over 12 months now. The positives - its slim / the windscreen mount is good / it looks great. The negatives - well.. When I recieved I tried out everything OK - updated via Garmin website and then lost the traffic. The Garmin user support is basic to say the least - just vague generic information on carrying out a hardware reset and then well if youve tried that not sure what else etc.
