"Beautiful, thin and reliable unit packed with features."

mmbelanger, CNET

  • 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.

"Great GPS with Room for Improvement"

joejoe123, CNET
28 August 2011
  • Pros: Free map upgrades and free traffic is a good feature. The screen is nice and bright and I've been starting to use the voice commands. Name look up is pretty good and the thin design is good. ability to custimize time shown.
  • Cons: Blue tooth link to cell phones should allow the injestion of addresses. I don't like that there is no address book. It should be easier to add\load addresses. The routing past traffic hasn't been working so welll.

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.

"Excellent GPS"

Rob27, CNET
2 March 2011
  • Pros: Bright, easy to read, great screen touch control, voice commands simple rather than confusing. Great tech support and easy map updates. Battery life can be extended by putting unit to sleep, by a simple click of the power button.
  • Cons: Tad slow on satellite pickup but not a big problem.

Garmin 3790t GPS, A Review

Steve, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • 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.

"Strong feature set, but has a few areas to improve"

pmignini, CNET
2 December 2010
  • Pros: - vibrant touch screen with visibility in daylight - voice command (though needs improvement) - accelerometer for portrait and landscape viewing - photo viewer that supports microSD card - intuitive interface - easy map and software updates
  • Cons: - voice command doesn't always "hear" well - routing is not always the most efficient - red light and speed camera database is incomplete - wish the screen was larger - detour function is a bit off
