But then I also read that people had difficulties registering products in their name, which could only be solved with lengthy phone calls to Garmin support, as earlier owners have registered already. I did not have such issues though.

  • A. Aside from a minor unnoticeable scratch at the back of the unit, mine look like it was just carefully used for about a week. I'm sure it will depend from unit to unit. LMT on the unit implies it does have lifetime traffic and maps. As soon as I registered my product, it acknowledged the lifetime maps for the unit.

  • A. The refurb I bought did not have any signs of wear and looked brand new. Some refurb units may have slight signs of wear (small scratch or blemish) that in no way affects its performance. What you get depends on the luck of the draw. The refurb is unregistered when you get it. Registering the unit with Garmin will activate the Lifetime maps and traffic.

  • A. Mine was in A-1 perfect condition. You could not have told it from brand new. However, because of the internal software issues, my guess is that the original owner didn't keep the unit very long before returning it. I gave it less than a week before discovering that these issues had never been "fixed" before Garmin resold it. Thus, it's been dropped from Garmin's 2012 model line. The 3490lmt is killer!!!

The refurbished 3790LMT is a fantastic deal.

Customer review by wtama

I purchased a refurbished 3790LMT from Walmart to replace my old Garmin 855 and I love it. The price/performance ratio is fantastic. If it didn't come in a box marked "Refurbished" I would have thought it was brand new. I haven't had any problems with it except for some difficulty installing software (not firmware) updates. This problem is not peculiar to this model and is fairly common in Garmin automotive GPS units. The updates did finally install but it can be frustrating if it's your first experience with Garmin software updates. I should mention that the software updates are optional and not critical to the operation of the GPS. Other than that the 3790LMT is great. The biggest difference between the 3790LMT and the newer 3490LMT is the guidance system. The 3790LMT uses Guidance 2.0 while the 3490LMT uses Guidance 3.0. The routing is the same in these two systems but Guidance 3.0 provides some additional features that I neither need nor want. You can check it out for yourself on the Garmin web site.

NEVER BUY A REFURBISHED GPS!!!

Customer review by PlanetWallyWorld

This so-called "refurbished" top-of-the-line Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT GPS had software issues that, apparently, were the reason it was returned by the original buyer. These issues were never fixed! For several days, the unit would say/show "turn left/right" when the correct direction was the opposite direction. It showed random routes that were nowhere near the input address. After a few days, the display "froze" and locked onto one specific screen that would not change. I later discovered that this unit had had ongoing issues that Garmin never resolved and dropped this model from their 2012 inventory. I returned the unit and replaced it with Garmin's Nuvi 3490LMT paying full price--and exceptional GPS unit. Buyer beware of "refurbished" products! :-)

I bought 2 of these units, one for a friend and we are very happy with it. It looks really sleek, the retail price of this type (the latest is 3490) is about $350 so for $159, it cannot be beat. The refurb unit looks brand new and works great. The features that set it apart from most others are - powered mount (making it easy to remove the unit for storage), longer battery life, touch sensitive glass screen (needs very gentle touch to type), 3d view of downtown areas, realistic photo views of exits with warning bell upon key exits, ability to switch orientation from portrait to landscape and best of all, a really slim body. Best way to mount it is using an adhesion mat (like the Bracketron mat) on the dashboard and then attach the suction cup to the surface of this mat - with no adhesion disc used. That way, you can remove the mount or mat and transfer to another vehicle without any damage or glue residue. Do admit that recalculation is a tiny bit slower at times, but given all the other features, you barely notice it.

The Garmin Nuvi is an excellent product. My previous GPS was not a Garmin and now that I own this Garmin I will never own another brand again. Also, the value for the refurbished price was an excellent value. I highly recommend this product. The Voice Commands really do work!!!

When it arrived it had a very small scratch on the screen, not even noticeable when it's powered on. Other than that everything else looked like new. The Refurbished Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT is very high tec. I've had it a couple months and it works great. I updated from a Tom Tom 340s to the Gramin Nuvi 3790 LMT because I was having issues updating the unit. I'm so glad I picked the Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT. With voice command, a memory card slot, lifetime updates and a much brighter screen in the day time, what's not to like? The only trouble I've had was getting the right size screen protector. I found that a 5 inch screen protector for the Garmin Nuvi 1450 works pretty well. It fits perfect side to side and is just short enough length wise that it dosen't cover the mic up.

This is my first GPS receiver that had either speech recognition or traffic. I don't know what I expected from the speech recognition, but while it does everything it is supposed to do after some reading, it doesn't do what I THINK I wanted and expected, being able to speak favorites and have it recognize them. But after thinking, I can see where my ideas are somewhat impractical; I do not downgrade it for this. Traffic ... unusual ... coming home from Atlanta last week, it changed my route on its own to avoid a wreck ... which I ignored and the wreck was cleared. I may disable this; it is easy to do. I find that it runs HOT plugged into 12V; haven't played with it on batteries enough to have a feel. It may be the backlight that either heats it or loads the power supply. Having owned multiple Garmin units before, this is what is below expectations.

My Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT is a great refurbished buy. I have only had it a few weeks and like its features while driving...things like the intersection or exit shows on screen what it should look like with what lane you should be in, red light camera and speed camera zones warning comes up, wish these things came with a preferred route feature vice showing you a way to go but you know that time of day will not work easily. Otherwise, this has worked well. it does warn not to keep it in car in high heat so i try to take it out. The AZ heat of 118 can be brutal and the software did lock up on me, I think, due to overheating once. Let it set a few minutes with the AC on and it came back with the route I was trying to get too still loaded. Nice!
