Great while they last

  • Summary: This is the 2nd Garmin we have owned and the 2nd to die this way. This unit is now totally useless. I can't connect to a PC at all and it won't work in the car. I can charge it and see a map for a minute but then it resets again. It still looks like new! not a scratch on it. Maybe I just have bad luck?
  • Pros: Sleek, beautiful screen and nice split screen for road divide and exits, so you know which lane for busy areas. The options like volume and step by step directions are an easy click away with icons.
  • Cons: It would reset randomly but seemed like only when you needed it most. It would get super hot and shut down. We often had to hold it in front of the A/C to cool it.

  • 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.

So far it's great

  • 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)

  • Summary: This is my first time having a GPS. Since I have never used a GPS before, I don't want to spend a lot of money for it so I bought a refurbished one in this particular type of Garmin nuvi that has good features I need most. Surprisingly enough,it looks like new in perfect condition, and it is very easy to use and so far it works wonderfully.

Additional Update

Kennard G., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall, it has some nice feautures Bluetooth Lifetime Map AND Traffic Updates Red Light Camera Alerts - even for Ontario - Toronto Canada I was able to test it in the Bronx and in Toronto; Easy updates; download the software first to your laptop and install; then connect your Garmin device and proceed to update. This is the easiest way.
  • Pros: I upgraded my tech knowledge to level to High because I was able to really test this GPS device in Canada and right here in New York City . And I give it an A+ Quick response Good battery life Thin and compact, making it easy to carry around - I forgot to take the car charger component, so all I had was the device and a USB cord. Battery life was pretty decent for 40 minutes of driving. It used 1/2 the battery life for this amount of driving. And I was able to recharg...
  • Cons: In Canada, it could take a few 30 seconds longer on a cloudy day to pick up a satellite signal. Price: I think for a refurb, the price is not the best, so I suggest you shop around. Sadly, Newegg is not offering competitive deals anymore. Some Brick and mortar (like Be*tBb*Y) are putting out some excellent deals.

Garmin - even better the second time around!

  • Summary: Bought this as a gift for my daughter as she had hers stolen. She was extremely happy with the quality, the ease of use and graphics are amazingly clear. She loves how small it is and now keeps it in her small purse when not in use to avoid another theft. The updated maps for life is a valuable feature.

so far it works

  • Summary: Not a bad GPS. I think it is an improvement over my Nuvi 765T
  • Pros: Very thin, lightweight, sleek design. Bright. Very nice looking, I like the live picture of the exit ramps.
  • Cons: Takes a bit long to pick up satellites, and has "recalculated" often times when I travel on the FDR. But this is not a deal breaker.

User Review

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that I own 3 other Garmin GPS units. (2 handheld & 1 Other Nuvi) I have had no issues with these other units. This 3790 unit seems to have software problems, It constantlly promps to change the elevation, Time, Direction, and other options to a point of distraction. ( as many as a dozen times on a 2 hour trip) Sometimes it will show you a list of all your turns when you ar 17 to 20 miles from your next turn.
