Ultra-slim, light and well finished, the Garmin 3790T is the nicest looking sat nav we've seen. It has a nice high res screen, good responsiveness and aims to supply what is quite a gamut of features for such an easily transportable model. The lack...

Most of the excitement in the sat-nav market has revolved around mobile data-enabled live services and the increasing importance of smartphone apps. But the standalone personal navigation device (PND) has mostly remained quite chunky. With...

The Nuvi 3790T is a nicely designed GPS with a sleek, light case, and the 800 by 480 screen packs a lot of information onto the display. But for the device's premium price of $450, I would have expected advertising-free live traffic and lifetime map...

Most GPS units have employed a similar form factor for a number of years — generally housing a resistive touchscreen in a bulky plastic case. Garmin has gone against the grain with the nuvi 3790T, banking on an ultra-thin design and a high...

Wow. If sat nav heaven is having Angelina Jolie jump into the passenger seat and asking you where you want to go, then the Garmin Nuvi 3790T comes a very, very close second. With looks akin to the current iPhone 4G (but with better reception), the...
