5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sat Nav, 21 Feb 2011
This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 3790T Europe with Premium Traffic and Voice Activation (Electronics)
I purchased the Nuvi 3790T to aid in our holiday trips with the caravan both in the UK and in Europe. It was bought with the intention of using it to show me a pre-defined route, so I could lose the maps and notes and make life a little easier whilst on the road.

Using the Nuvi is simplicity itself. You can search for places by name, address, post code, GPS cords, search on the map etc. So building a route takes no time at all. Should the route chosen not be the way you want to go, simply add in another destination for the road you want to take and the route adjusts accordingly. You can view the map of the route to check all roads and junctions as well as being able to simulate the drive itself. Presently, the Nuvi 3790T doesn't work with MapSource, but I find it just as easy on the unit itself without the need for using computer software.

Voice commands work well, even with no voice training. It is a great facility to be able to talk commands to the unit rather than having to take your hands to it, and far safer whilst driving. Bluetooth connectivity worked flawlessly with my Nokia phone. Voice dialling can be done, this coupled with the address book makes making & receiving calls a breeze.

The unit has a brilliant screen on it, slim and lightweight. I use the Garmin Universal Friction Mount, which is another excellent piece of equipment. Keeps the 3790T parked firmly on the dash and is very easy to remove when vacating the vehicle.

Software was updated as soon as I received the unit, this went without a hitch. Best advice here is to leave it doing the update over night, as a map update takes a while. It doesn't require user input during the update, so you'll return to a fully updated Sat Nav first thing in the morning.

The unit has never crashed on me. It locks onto the Sat signal very quickly. Memory can be extended with a Micro SD card. POI's can be loaded very easily.

Does exactly what I wanted it to. Highly recommended.
