Product Details

Garmin 4.3" Nuvi 3790LMT Car Navigation System - 0100085821

Experience uniquely personal navigation from the elegantly slim nüvi 3790LMT. It comes with FREE Lifetime Maps and Traffic and 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, and hands-free calling compatibility.

Features:

  • Includes FREE Lifetime Map Updates! With free Lifetime Map¹ and Traffic2 updates, you always have the most up-to-date maps, points of interest and navigation information available at your fingertips. Traffic information is updated constantly, and map updates are available for download up to 4 times a year. Both features are ready to go, right out of the box, with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.
  • 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 3790LMT 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 3790LMT just does it.

    With trafficTrends, your nüvi 3790LMT 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 3790LMT 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 3790LMT will help you get there on time.

  • Speak Commands nüvi 3790LMT 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 3790LMT 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 3790LMT 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. Navigate City Transit With its enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities and dual-oriented screen, nüvi 3790LMT 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 3790LMT 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 in the U.S. and Europe. 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 3790LMT 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 3790LMT 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. The 3790LMT features Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD™ cards.

        Comments about Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT Car Navigation System:

        Some people complained that it does not acquire satellites fast but this is not true at all. If the unit is on standby, it takes about 20 seconds to have the satellites lock. If it was completely off, then it takes about 2 minutes, which is about normal for any GPS.The route choices are very good compared to my previous Navigon GPS and very similar or identical to routes I would take myself just using a map.The voice command is by far the best feature, it works very well. The only cons is that you cannot chose the type of itinerary using the voice command, by default it takes the fastest route, while if you use the on-screen menu, you can chose between fastest, shorted and most fuel efficient routes.The traffic info is surprisingly detailed but slow to acquire. If the unit was completely off or detached from the cradle, it takes about 25 minutes to get traffic. If the unit was on standby and on the cradle, it just takes a couple minutes or less.One feature I do miss compared to the Navigon is the over the speed limit warnings. The Navigon would beep over preset speeds (i.e 15 mph over on highway, 5 mph over in city), while the Nuvi just shows your current speed in red.I also downloaded the cyclops red-light cams map from garmin's website, this works so-so. I mean, it works when the camera location is correctly setup but in many cases the database is not accurate and it won't warn you although the camera has been in place for a long time. There are other databases than can be downloaded for this purpose but have not yet tried them out, most are not free.Now that I've been using the GPS for a few weeks it starts to show the myTrend routes. When I leave home in the am it tells me the expected driving time to work without me having to do anything.I also like the on-screen information, particularly the top shows the street name you're currently driving on and the next street name ahead.I'm considering adding the Ecoroute HD device but at [$] currently, even tough it's down from $150, it's still twice as much as I would be willing to pay for the gadget.Finally, the screen is very very crisp and accurate to touch and the unit very good looking about twice thinner than an iPhone.
