Garmin Nüvi 3790T Portable GPS Navigator

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

The Garmin Nuvi 3790T Portable GPS Navigator is undoubtedly among the top global positioning products offered by Garmin. And while Garmin is among the leaders in technology, their best products have remained among the best in the industry. If you tend to get lost, love electronics, want to keep your kids safe and interested in travel, and don't mind spending a few extra dollars for features and Bluetooth, this product may be a very good choice for you.

The 3790T retails for $449.99, and is among the sleekest and slimmest GPS systems available. At just 9 millimeters thick, it is as small as many smart phones and even just over the size of a number two pencil. It also features a touch screen with a large 4.3 inch display, and can be flipped on its side vertically or horizontally for easiest use or reading.

Only one pound, it is heaviest enough to allow for some confidence in carrying it, and is Bluetooth compatible with both a microphone and a speaker. It is perhaps as much in the Bluetooth as the sleek design that the GPS gains its fans, and allows you to get your monies worth.

The Bluetooth equipped into the system gives you the chance to receive subscription-free traffic alerts anywhere in the United States, and these can be accessed wirelessly from anywhere on the road. This allows for useful real time updates as you are en route to your destination.

The routing capabilities allow you to track trends, and speak commands allow you to speak directly into the system to found routes and bring up a variety of menu options. Hands free calling features allow you to connect it to your cell phone to make calls while you are driving, and big city transit applications help you navigate the busiest of downtown areas.
