Summary: Ok, I stepped up, way up, to the 3790T from the 850. Big, big upgrade. It's like the new unit is from a different company. All for the better. Voice Command works great unlike my old 850. Just say "voice command" and the voice control activates. A list of available commands is shown on the screen.
Summary: I would like the 3790T better if I could change the distance of the reminder of the next turn. You are almost at the turn when it tells you. Here in GA there is a lot of traffic so you need time to change lanes.
Summary: Happy as can be with my 3790t after accomplishing over two thousand miles. Its new design is sexy as can be. The screen is a fingerprint magnet but the upside of it is that when the unit is on, the screen is crystal clear (thanks to the 800X480 resolution) and you can't notice the fingerprints.

Summary: I purchased the Garmin nüvi 3790T 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator on Amazon and through Prime had it in 2 days. The device is very impressive with a couple of exceptions. We have a Garmin nüvi 255W 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic, a Kenwood DNX6140 6.1-Inch Wide Double-DIN...
Summary: This unit is about the display. Every other feature (like VR) is bonus. The graphics are amazing, making Retina display users feel right at home. The operation is responsive and you don't have to press hard on the touchscreen.
Summary: After reading all the reviews on this GPS I have a couple of suggestions for all those people having problems. This is my fourth Garmin GPS and one thing I have learned: when you get a new garmin take it out of the box, take it outside long enough to find the satelites, then connect it to your...
Summary: I purchased the 3790LMT at Costco the day before Thanksgiving: paid $450. This is the 10th GPS I've purchased over the years. My current GPS is a Garmin 1490T. The 3790LMT is my first voice-commanded GPS. First day of use was very disappointing: voice commands worked poorly or not at all.
Summary: I know if I could have waited a while, it would have gone down in price some, but thanks to bad timing and the need for a replacement unit, I splurged. Even given that, I don't regret it. This is a really excellent device.
Summary: This is one amazing navigation. I just purchased it directly from [...] as a replacement for my existing Nuvi 760. I cannot believe the clarity of this system. It is brilliantly clear. It is close to the clarity of my iPhone 4.
