  • Summary: - Why you bought it? I bought it for my friend. It has most of the required Navigation system features. - What you like most about it? It's reasonable price. - What you dislike about it? It doesn't have my region Maps, It doesn't work smoothly/fastly especially when loading the Maps. - Whether or not you would buy the product again? I'll try to buy butter than this.

buy this with maps already installed, same price just with maps installed

09movieman76413, Ebay

  • Summary: This unit didn't come with any maps already programmed into it. We had to spend another $90 for maps that should of been already programmed into the unit. I have a couple myself and they both came with maps already programmed into them. The Garmin website is also kind of difficult to navigate around in, and the maps took a little over 10 hours to download with high speed internet, but after all said and done, it's a great product and works pretty well.

User Review

  • Summary: For the money I personally did not see that many features that were worth the additional money. Phone via bluetooth, the microphone is not strong enough. The person I called could barely hear me. They advertise this device was suppose to show you images of intersections. I have driven into Minneapolis, Minnesota and never did see any intersection pictures popup. I am glad I bought it at a reduced price refurbished model.

MapSource

Comanche, Amazon
23 October 2010
  • Summary: After many hours of trying to transfer routes from MapSource to my new Garmin 3790T without success, I called support. I was told the new model doesn't have the capability of connecting to MapSource. They've had many complaints about it, and they will have a "fix" in the first quarter of 2011, I'm told. Would not have bought this model had I known this. Been using Garmin products many years on cars, airplane and boat. Very disappointed!

A bit disappointing

Oscar Hamilton, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: I upgraded to this unit for a cross country trip. As the return was solo, I felt the voice nav was an important feature. First the good. The screen is great, far better than other low res gps units, the speaker is loud enough to be heard easily and the size and appearance of the unit is excellent. For my journey the maps were very accurate, routes were calculated relatively quickly.

Nice Graphics and better interface but routing weird

Dee, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: The graphics on this device are much sharper and colors much better than previous versions I have owned (Nuvi 660 was the last). That makes the display interface more inviting although the map displays seem pretty much the same (albeit better resolution). The voice pronunciation is significantly improved over previous models. It is more fluid and streets are pronounced much better. The fact that it can be used in "portrait" mode is great..

Great, but

Craig Bares "Photog.", Amazon
22 August 2010
  • Summary: Really like this gps unit. The only thing id that it tries to take you some side streets at times that are not the best route. Also Amazon sent it to me overnight which was not requested and the shipper i ordered it from (Electronica Direct) is blaming Amazon and not removing it from m bill.

Mostly a "Pretty Face"

GeneAlbert, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: If you are looking for a GPS system primarily for its "Pretty Face", the 3790T is the one to buy (if you don't mind the steep price). If you are looking for something more from a GPS system, then keep looking and comparing. Over a three month period, I bought a Garmin nuvi 1690 nuLink, a Garmin nuvi 3790T nuRoute, and a TomTom Go 740TM Live.

Not much reason to upgrade to 3790T

Augsburg57, Amazon
7 August 2010
  • Summary: If you already have a Garmin gps, there may not be much reason to upgrade to the 3790T. I owned a nuvi 660 for the past few years. It worked pretty good, but would get confused when I drive in downtown urban canyons with tall buildings and narrow streets. In particular, driving in Downtown San Francisco was laughable - with constant annoucements of "recalculating" as the gps signal bounced crazily off the office towers.
