    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!!!

    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.

    • I bought a new one as my first one and a refurb for my second one. They both came in the original box with all the same accesories. You can't tell the difference, except for the cost.

    • It appears everything in the "refurbished" box is the exact same items in the "new" box...owner manual, USB cord, suction mount, dashboard adhesive mount, automobile power cord, and of course the GPS device itself.

    • 1. The piece I got was in perfect condition with no cosmetic defects whatsoever. But I am sure if it is the case always. 2. Yes, Refurb comes with life time traffic and maps. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 1. Mine was like brand new. I think these items weren't sold and returned, simply refurbed before they were sold. 2. Yes, LMT means lifetime traffic and maps.

    • 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!!!
