Summary: After a few months of use, I think the 3790 is a solid unit. I like the improved address interface. The mapping is as good as my previous one. The traffic alert is OK, but I haven't had a chance to use it to bypass traffic. Most of the time I'm stuck in it before, I can do anything. It hasn't alerted me to find another route. Although I've turned off bluetooth, occasionally it activates when I dial out from my cellphone.
Summary: You all know how we don't like the route a GPS takes us on sometimes. Well, this one learns the route you prefer to take instead of the route it suggest. Cool! There are a lot of things I like about this GPS. Slim, fast, 3-D, lane assist w/ junction view, Bluetooth- pars well with my cellphone and shows all my contacts and can hear the person well, voice activation, can turn it upright like an I-phone, plus so much more. I just love it!
Summary: Being a refurbished unit, I wasn't expecting a 100% cosmetically-nice and functionally-perfect product. As reviewed previously by other users, my unit rebooted itself during use, and hung occasionally. I'm not in US currently, plus I can live with the 99.9% uptime of the product so won't be doing a return. Have used other Garmin nuvis before (both new and refurbished), only disappointed with the 1350. Will definitely recommend the nuvi 3790 to interested users!
Summary: I needed a new GPS and this one has exceeded my expectations. It is an excellent product. There isn't much to dislike. The battery life is great. The traffic info works perfectly. I love the Lifetime updates for the maps. Just a great product overall.
8.5 out of 10, and an Awesome product and great value for the money!!

Summary: Ok I’ve had this Garmin long enough to have gotten a feel for it and a good deal of its capabilities. So before I begin, I think I should share how I work when buying electronics (and almost anything for that matter), I deliberate, and how I do that is by doing a ton of research and reading very extensive reviews, especially when I’m very clueless on a product and its functions. So knowing all that, you get a feel for why I say what I say.
Summary: Haven't tried to update the maps yet, not sure how long this will last,
Pros: Very slim, comes with a mini mount to a car dashboard, lifetime maps and traffic, also purchased a 2 year warranty just in case, basically got it for half the price of the original, the price and it being almost the recently updated Garmin makes this deal a huge steal even though refurbished(that's where the warranty comes in)
Cons: Had to put the brightest all the way up to see the screen when the sun light hits the gps(not really a con, but can drain battery usage)
