Beautiful, thin and reliable unit packed with features.

  • Summary: Unless speech recognition and cell phone integration are essentially to you, the 3790 is a spectacular device.
  • Pros: - large, vivid screen that changes to subtler colors when it's dark to ease eye-strain., - fast touch response., - large database of various commercial locations., - great audio directions., - lots of customization., - easy updating of firmware and maps.
  • Cons: - voice command isn't quite there yet. Very susceptible to background noise and will periodically activate by itself. Handy while stopped, though., - bluetooth-sync with phones is easy, but the sound quality is poor., - traffic data seems to lag.

Good kit, but buy from somewhere reputable.

  • Summary: I should have known better, but this was advertised on Ebay at an unrealistically low price. I seccumbed, and then the toerag retailer never sent it. So I can't really review something that I never received. I have since purchased the model below this on a trip to the USA (3760T) which is still a very good unit. It doesn't have the 3D buildings feature or the voice activiation, but for what I paid in the US, I'm extremely happy with it.

Great unit - but intrusive commercial popup ads or "offers" that can't be switched off

  • Summary: This is a beautiful little unit - very slim, large, bright screen. The voice command system gets things right about two-thirds of the time, which means you can get going almost as quickly using voice as you can using the touchscreen. It switches between portrait and landscape effortlessly. And, having upgraded from a Nüvi 670 to this, I appreciate the new nüvi features such as displaying speed limits and cameras. Having included lifetime traffic is really handy too.

Garmin 3790t GPS, A Review

Steve, Amazon

  • Summary: A full review (with photos) is posted here: [...] Introduction. Meet Emily I couldn't live without her. At least if I want to drive in Thailand. She always has time for me, remembers where things are, tells me when to turn and when I'll be getting on the Expressway, and if I stick her in a box for a long time she never complains. So far it's been the perfect relationship! She's never let me down and in return I take good care of her.

Garmin nuvi 3790T

  • Summary: This GPS is easy to use, bright screen, a lot of different options. The only problem is it doesn't calculate the shortest route which can be very annoying. Over all it's a good product.

Looks great, and FINALLY works properly

Jon L. Albee "Faulkner Wannabe", Amazon

  • Summary: I'll keep my comments relatively short. This product looks really nice. It's a nice, slim design and the graphics are really top notch too. There's just one big problem: It doesn't work. My 3790 was riddled with bugs right out of the box. It would do all sorts of strange things and crash regularly. Software updates (through 2.50) didn't help. Restoring factory settings? That didn't do it either.

Great, with some quirks!

T. Nielsen, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this recently for a trip to LA. Overall, it's a big improvement over the Garmin Nuvi 350 it replaces. But it has a few things that buyers should be aware of: 1) First off, and this is my biggest disappointment, the traffic functions of this are HORRIBLE. Leaving San Francisco at 6am all of the sudden the GPS said 'severe traffic ahead' and wanted to route me 40 MINUTES out of the way.
