Experience nüRoute™ Technology with trafficTrends™ and myTrends™
Smart and good-looking, this uniquely personal navigator comes with advanced routing capabilities that include trafficTrends™ and myTrends™. There’s no subscription necessary, no added costs, your nüvi 3790LMT just does it.
With trafficTrends, your nüvi 3790LMT automatically learns daytime trends for traffic flow to improve your routes and better predict your estimated time of arrival based on time of day and day of week. And you get free trafficTrends™ updates every time you connect your device to myGarmin.
With myTrends, when you save your regular destinations in your “Favorites,” your nüvi 3790LMT will, over time, begin to figure out where you’re going even without your telling it! It provides time of arrival and relevant traffic information. So whether you’re driving to and from work or a regularly scheduled weekly event, your nüvi 3790LMT will help you get there on time.
nuvi 3790LMT not only tells you where to turn but listens to your spoken commands. With its innovative speech recognition, you can control nüvi with your voice — allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply wake up nüvi with a customizable voice command and begin speaking menu options that are clearly displayed on the screen. Tell nuvi "Find Address" and speak an address to start navigating.
