5.0 out of 5 stars Very Clear & easy to use, 5 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin nuvi 3760T 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Traffic Alerts and Bluetooth (Electronics)
This was bought to replace a Garmin Nuvi 670 which was never the same after a Garmin update, & would freeze up at the fist sign of a junction, needing a re-boot.... very annoying. The battery life had also reduced to minutes.

This unit works fine (much as my 670 when I first had it), but has a much clearer screen, with better graphics. The addition of lane identification is also extremely useful. One criticism is that the speed camera "bong" (another £20) is similar to that of an aircraft stewardess button, & too quiet. I got into GPS navigation over 10 years ago, prior to it being popular, using a Palm Tungsten T3 & mapping software. Being PDA based, all displays were taller, rather than wider, which is far more intuitive, & you drove up the screen.... the 3760T supports this very well. Its also much thinner, & genuinely slips into an inside pocket of a jacket. We recently used it to navigate Valencia on foot, & it was very good at that, getting us to the door of the hotel from the train station. (It also worked in the plane next to the window!!!)
Minus points..... The glossy screen is a fingerprint magnet, but looks good when clean! The speaker is build into the mount, & yet another change of plug connection means I have to rewire the hard wired plug in the car. Needless to say my old Garmin mains adapter won't fit either, so more money for Garmin if I want to charge it out of the car.

Overall its a great unit, a bit pricey, but the best one I've owned yet.
