Summary: My first GPS purchase was 5 years ago and was the Garmin 2730. Back then, I wrote an extensive review and despite any shortcomings, rated it 5 stars! After the bulky power cord had to be replaced several times, I decided it was time to replace the unit.
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.
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.
Summary: Been using the nuvi line. I've kept a 360 and 660 and tried/returned a couple of others.....the problems I experienced with the 3790: 1. After a software update it started drawing maps very very slowly. 2. software bugginess galore. pretty easy to get it to crash. 3. it chooses odd routes.
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.
Summary: When it's working it does a good job, very easy to follow. Lovely slim case makes it look and feel more like a phone than a satnav. Unfortunately .... the machine regularly switches itself off for no reason when in use.
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.

Summary: I got myself this garmin gizmo (some 6+ months ago) as a replacement for a pocket pc (is/was cumbersome to use). I will use actual numbers here, as to avoid all the `it is slow', `it is long' - `long' or `slow' is very subjective, a number will let you judge for yourself.
Stopped working after 3 times. Difficult to get any form of support from Garmin

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.
