Summary: The Garmin nuvi 3790T is drop-dead gorgeous. If you're willing to pay its premium price you'll get a navigation device that not only looks good, but offers excellent build quality, a great screen and what we think is the best overall navigational experience of any GPS unit on the market.
Pros: Design and build quality, capacitive touchscreen, simple and effective UI, voice commands, traffic updates, safety alerts, lane guidance
Cons: Expensive, glossy screen, no ambient light sensor, slightly slower at getting a GPS fix and rerouting than other Garmin satnavs
Summary: Sat-navs aren’t renowned for their curves or design flair. But at just 9mm thick and clad in a mix of glass and alloy, Garmin’s 3790T has all the allure of a certain smartphone we could mention. It makes other sat-navs look chunky and childish by comparison.
