Garmin Nuvi 3790T Car Navigation System - 0100085820

Experience uniquely personal navigation from the elegantly slim nüvi 3790T. It features a multi-touch glass display, nüRoute™ technology with trafficTrends™ and myTrends™, voice-activated navigation, 3-D building and terrain view, lane assist with junction view, hands-free calling compatibility and subscription-free traffic alerts.

Features:

  • Award-Winning Design The new nüvi is less than 9 mm thick, about the same as a standard #2 pencil. It has a full glass 4.3” diagonal multi-touch display. Dual orientation capabilities allow you to use the nüvi 3790T either horizontally or vertically, fitting smartly in your hand when walking. Sleek design also disappears neatly into your pocket or purse. With a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it’s ready to guide you by car or foot.
  • Experience nüRoute™ Technology With trafficTrends™ And myTrends™ Smart and good-looking, this uniquely personal navigator comes with advanced routing capabilities that include trafficTrends™ and myTrends™. There’s no subscription necessary, no added costs, your nüvi 3790T just does it. With trafficTrends, your nüvi 3790T automatically learns daytime trends for traffic flow to improve your routes and better predict your estimated time of arrival based on time of day and day of week. With myTrends, when you save your regular destinations in your “Favorites,” your nüvi 3790T will, over time, begin to figure out where you’re going even without your telling it! It provides time of arrival and relevant traffic information. So whether you’re driving to and from work or a regularly scheduled weekly event, your nüvi 3790T will help you get there on time.
  • Speak Commands nüvi 3790T not only tells you where to turn but listens to your spoken commands. With its innovative speech recognition, you can control nüvi with your voice — allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply wake up nüvi with a customizable voice command and begin speaking menu options that are clearly displayed on the screen. Tell nüvi "Find Address" and speak an address to start navigating.
  • Know The Lane Before It’s Too Late No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.
  • Make Hands-Free Calls For hands-free calling, nüvi 3790T integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 3790T while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with its touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest.
  • Receive Subscription-Free Traffic Alerts Steer clear of traffic with the integrated FM traffic receiver and free lifetime¹ traffic updates. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch the screen on nüvi to view traffic details or detour around the problem area.
  • Navigate City Transit With its enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities and dual-oriented screen, nüvi 3790T is the perfect travel companion for getting around town. Download optional cityXplorer™ content to help you navigate the big city. In addition to knowing where to walk, where to catch the bus, subway, tram or other transportation you’ll also have access to mass transit schedules and estimated travel time to your destination. cityXplorer maps are available for select cities throughout North America and Europe. And with prices as low as $9.99, you'll have money left over to spend in the big city.
  • Get Turn-By-Turn Directions See Buildings and Terrain in 3-D. nüvi 3790T has an intuitive interface that greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT street maps for the U.S, Canada and Mexico with nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs) such as stores, restaurants, hotels, entertainment venues, gas stations, ATMs and more, and speed limits for most major roads. With 3-D Building and Terrain view, you’ll see representations of prominent buildings in many cities and map contours at low zoom levels, giving you a realistic perspective of the terrain.
  • Go Beyond Navigation Also offered on nüvi 3790T are standard nüvi features that go beyond navigation. For example, ecoRoute — a green feature that calculates a more fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. The 3790T includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate to them. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.

    Comments about Garmin Nuvi 3790T Car Navigation System:

    This is the fastest GPS I've used, in terms of calculating routes and keeping up with traffic maneuvers. The screen is extremely clear, and the view automatically zooms to a [usually] appropriate level for the current maneuver.

    The voice activation is hit and miss. It works reasonably well in most of the US with English street names. Try to ask it directions to a French restaurant or a street with a Spanish name, however, and you'll be back to the keyboard.

    I brought the machine to Argentine, where the voice commands are basically useless. It simply doesn't recognize Spanish street names when spoken. When I change it to Spanish, it responds that most of the voice menu commands are no longer available, and it doesn't do any better with the Spanish names. Same for native speakers as well as gringos.

    My only other quibble is that they've lost the "type a name" function for submenus. It's available only at the main menu level for Points of Interest, so whatever name you type will search through airports, service stations, shops, restaurants, etc. rather than just the category you want.

    All in all this is an excellent machine. With improvements to its language capabilities it could be splendid.

        I love this GPS (now). First one had very very cranky touch screen,practically unusable, so ABT replaced. Same problem with replacement. Called Garmin/they helped me connect to computer and fixed problem very easily. So call garmin if concerned.Occasionally says something is where it isn't(was trying to find school for ballgame and it said the school was there but nothing but high rock cliff/had to go on and find it by asking. Also told me a dept store was out in a housing area (several times over).But hoping updates might solve, don't know yet.Otherwise I can't recommend highly enough. It's pricey but I think worth it.So far garmin service is great [...]

          Comments about Garmin Nuvi 3790T Car Navigation System:

          Traffic routing is great. I've been using a Garmin IQue for over 10 years. It would always send me through the city rather than around. Traffic through the city move 20MPH but is posted as 55MPH. Around is always faster. Now with traffic routing the GPS knows to go around.It was really easy to get started. Powered on and did several searches and routes right away.Trip plan is great. I have a 2700 mile 5 stop trip in the trip plan that we will use in 2 weeks. I look forward to the first long trip with it.I don't like suction cup mounts. They take time to move between vehicles and often loose grip and drop unit. The friction mount is great. Went through a couple 270 turns and it didn't move.Decided to connect to Garmin and download free map upgrade. It took about 5 hours :( Thought free lifetime map updates was included but it is another $90

          It is compact, really thin with large screen,
          But the touch screen is difficult in places, especially the top. Takes multiple hard pushes. Returned first one and second is just the same.
          will give different routes to same place and says addresses are right here when it may just be a large rocky wall on side of road. Actual address can be a mile or more away. This has happened several times when trying to find schools where grandson is playing sports. It helps but is not infallible.

          I like it, but there are a few problems.
          I have had 2 and both have stubborn touch screens. Numerous hits and hard pressure are necessary on some areas of screen while others are fine.
          It seems to use different routes going and coming sometimes.
          Told me a school I was going to was right there and there was nothing there but a wall of rock.
          Seems inconsistent.

              Easy to install and use. Voice navigation worked as expected. I couldn't believe how easily I could redirect where I wanted to go using voice navigation and how 100% of the time the Garmin worked flawlessy with my commands. With no manual I was easily able to navigate the many features within this device. It is very intuitive and easy to use.
