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: 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.
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.
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.
Summary: this was a gift for my fiancee' Kathy .. i had it wrapped ready to give to her .. on my way to her house in NJ there was an accident and traffic was redirected and i had no clue where i was or how to get back to rt 80 .. you guessed it ..
Summary: While vacationing in Florida, I bought a refurbished Garmin 3790 LMT through Walmart, available only online where I was. The price I paid was for a refurbished item, but, believe me, the only thing reminding me of a refurbished item was the label on the box.It was delivered in a day instead of 3 days. Sent in an ordinary box,inside which there was the blue and white beautiful Garmin box containing the GPS and all it's accessories in their original wrapping.
Summary: My first GPS was Garmin, it was bulky, slow and sometimes the traffic didn't work. My latest GPS is Garmin, it is slim, slow and sometimes the traffic doesn't work. Do you see a pattern here? I will sum my likes and dislikes in several points: What is good? 1- The new Garmin GPS is slim, which is great since now you can stash it in your glove compartment when not in use. 2- Lifetime Map updates: You can update the MAPS up to 4 times per Year FREE!
