Garmin nüvi 3790T

 

Strikingly thin. First GPS with a glass-capacitive, multi-touch screen and built-in accelerometer. Beautiful, high-resolution graphics. Accurate routing. Fast recalculations.

Very expensive. Occasional ads.

The Garmin nüvi 3790T is a solid navigator that raises the bar for the standalone GPS category, with its slim build, ultra-high-resolution screen, flexible routing and traffic, and gorgeous terrain mapping.

Multitouch zoom

Traffic reports are advertising-supported

If your vehicle can accommodate a GPS device with an enormous 7-inch screen, the RoadMate will prove to be a worthwhile travel companion.

Garmin Nuvi 3790T

 

Garmin designed the Nuvi 3790T to be the thinnest, lightest portable navigation device ever and to go toe-to-toe with the iPhone in a fashion show. Though we're not certain that the Nuvi would win such a matchup, by setting its standards so high Garmin...

The Garmin Nuvi 3790T is one of the thinnest and lightest portable navigators we've tested; it's the best looking, too. Voice Command is truly hands-free and can be activated merely by speaking to the Nuvi. Bluetooth calling also helps drivers keep...

The glossy screen tends to create a good deal of glare when used in direct sunlight. Traffic data cannot be accessed while using the device in the hand

The Garmin Nuvi 3790T is an exceptional portable navigation device with just the right blend of form and function.

Garmin nuvi 3790T review

 

For the most part, standalone navigators have retained their same form factor for the better part of the last five years. Each one looked like the other,

Super slim ; Great features ; World-class user interface

Slow to acquire GPS signal ; Voice robot needs updating ; No European maps

Garmin nuvi 3790T

 

The Garmin nuvi 3790T would be the nearly-perfect navigational system had Garmin reinforced the thin and sometimes flimsy device platform, as well as taken steps to alert consumers of the pop-up ads. Many consumers purchase the GPS with "lifetime...

Expensive- a comparable smartphone performs nearly the samePesky- does not indicate pop-up traffic ads until they show up

Garmin nuvi 3790T

 

The Garmin nuvi 3790T is one of the sleekest personal navigation devices around. We see if it has the brawn and brains to match its winning looks.

Garmin nuvi 3790LMT

 

The Garmin nüvi 3790LMT adds lifetime map updates to the nuvi 3790T, Garmin's latest and greatest navigator. With its 4.3” glass screen and minimalist 0.35” thickness, it resembles an iPhone more than past nuvis. In addition to most of the goodies...

Very thin ; Gorgeous, bright screen ; The loudest nuvi yet ; Terrain view ; trafficTrends historical road speeds result in improved routing ; More streets are labeled than on recent nuvis ; Improved junction view and lane assist coverage ; Voice...

Voice command performance and options weaker than expected ; Disappointing Bluetooth performance ; trafficTrends results in increased route calculation time ; Slightly weaker GPS receiver performance than other recent nuvi series ; Multi-destination...

Highly recommended — the best nuvi yet. The 3790 models feel like a work of art; the screen is drop dead gorgeous. Routing has been significantly improved with the addition of historical road speed data (trafficTrends). I expect that a couple of my...
