Too expensive for cheaper product and service

JasPunjabi, CNET
22 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought it because it says it has the capability to add trip planners but they worked for a while and then all the sudden now they are not working. I spent $399.99 + Tax because of trip planner features but now its not working. So, whats so good about life time map updates or life time traffic updates if i am not getting what i suppose to get out of it. I had worst experience with garmin and may not buy any more garmin product.
  • Pros: Faster touch screen is the only good feature in it
  • Cons: Can not download routes or trip planners from any third party program

Very Good looking! So???

  • Summary: I don't get it. Why does it matter that a GPS is ultra thin? How often does the average person carry around their GPS device? unless you travel alot not that often. Plus if you do it'll be in your suitcase. Also does it really matter what it looks like in the end? as long as it can promise to keep me out of traffic and get me where i need to be quickly and efficiently i'm sold.
  • Pros: Slim design, Nuvi Routing
  • Cons: Pricey, not the most efficient and dependable routing

Nuvi 3790T Not so Great

doug1807, Ebay
9 November 2010
  • Summary: This is my third (and least favorite) Garmin. I bought it because I was lured by the ultra-slim design and the 3D terrain and building views. The design is excellent and the product is as easy to use as my previous Garmins, but I've had several disappointments. First of all, so far in Canada there is no 3D effects, this changes at the border going into the States however, but there is no where on their site that explains this is a feature only available in the US.

Well designed but has functional issues

A. Downey, Amazon
24 July 2010
  • Summary: This newly released Garmin GPS has several great design features but also has some functional flaws that need to be resolved. For now, due to the very high price, I returned it until Garmin can fix these issues. Details are below. Pros (most important to least): o Extremely well-designed thin profile. o The display graphics are increadibly well-done: far more geographic detail exists compared to our previous Garmins o It's also very light and fits easily in a pocket.

Impressive But There Were Some Issues

Amazon
30 June 2010
  • Summary: I have owned many gps units for the past 10 years. I am very picky when it comes to gps units and I do not think twice about sending back units that I do not feel are good and accurate. I currently own Nuvi models 360 and 780. I received my 3790T last week and for a brand new model this one has blown me away. One main thing to remember is to make sure you uncheck most of the choices on the avoidance screen so your routing is more accurate.

Over priced for what it is

Ry-Man, Amazon
28 August 2011
  • Summary: Have been using this for a while now. It's a great design etc, but the maps is the most important, and even after an update it does get stuck in a lot of places, including central London. It's sent me around in loops a number of times. Also it doesn't have an easy way to choose your own route; it calculates the route itself based on your preference for: faster time, short distance, less fuel etc, but it reality it doesn't work very well, and it most often than not sends...

Stopped working after 3 times. Difficult to get any form of support from Garmin

Kevin, Amazon
20 June 2011
  • Summary: Garmin Nuvi 3760T Europe with Premium Traffic I love the look of this product and when it was working, it did so with ease and it was quite accurate. After 3 uses it however, it stopped working with no life in the product now evident. I have contacted Garmin several times by their email support have been assured a response within three days but there has been no contact from Garmin. Very disappointed .

Simply Not Worth the High Price

Mr. Guy Mcevoy "Geek In Denial", Amazon
6 January 2011
  • Summary: Bought for my Mrs for Christmas. Read all the technology mags and they all said this was the one to go for. It is a hundred quid premium over most others so you expect something special. The Good: - It looks the business. All Sat Navs should be this form factor. It has something of the iphone about it. When you first get it out the box you are chuffed to bits. - You can choose landscape or portrait aspect ration depending on preference simply by turning it.

The Principle is good, the execution is flawed.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this after some rave reviews on various sites. And they were right. The screen display is superb and the vertical display makes it very easy to read. I also like the extended information you can get if you set it. But... It has some serious firmware issues which Garmin are aware of. So, you can't use Mapsource to create routes (although you can use it to create favourites).

User Review

  • Pros: Только дизайн.
  • Cons: Главный недостаток данного дивайса - чудовищная тормознутость. Об этом уже писали, но я добавлю. Прибор на российских дорогах практически бесполезен. В любой сложной ситуации - развязка, несколько поворотов в течение короткого времени - можете быть уверенными, что 3790Т вас непременно подведет - поворт вы проскочите, на развязке уедете не туда. Потому что данная модель просто чудовищно медленно работает. Типичная ситуация: аппарат сообщает, что до поворота 500 м. Зате...
