It took 3 downloads and restarts to get My Dashboard to say the software is up to date. But there is nothing to show what was updated
What is that problem? Do you mean that the preference for shortest vs fastest doesn't work properly? I have never tried the shortest option on my 3790 personally.
Talk about beating a subject to death... I gave up on that thread long ago. I would say that most people don't experience the issues mentioned in that thread. It seems to be related to some quirks in the map data as far as I could tell.The routing on my 3790 has really impressed me. It puts a lot more "thought" into the choice of roads. Driving around Manhattan, the routes it chose were not the obvious ones, but they made sense - nuRoute seems to be working, and I'm sure it will improve as time goes by.
Well the 2620 was my first automotive GPS and I loved it. Still miss all the advanced menu's. But in every other way, the 3790 "beats" it IMO. Most people would find the satellite acquisition times and signal losses on the 26x0 series pretty unacceptable today. I would lose signal when driving down a road with lots of trees for example. In the NYC metro area it was all but useless, even with an external antenna. Coming out of the parking garage in downtown Philadelphia at the end of the day and heading for home, it could take 10 minutes or more to lock onto the satellites.You could stack up 10 nuvi 3790's and they still wouldn't be as thick or heavy as the 2610. :lol:

When the GPS is telling me something that doesn't make sense, I just go my own way and let it catch up with me.But I'm one of those conceited persons who feels he is smarter than a Nuvi... :P
I logged onto Garmin’s “My Dashboard” tonight and saw that there is a software update available for the 3790t. It took 3 downloads and restarts to get My Dashboard to say the software is up to date. But there is nothing to show what was updated.
I tried one POI (a restaurant) three times and it crashed each time. I then tried an address and got the database error. Tried a point that was manually selected on the map and also got the database error.Just did a full reset and am heading out on a trip, so we'll see if that changes anything.
Did Garmin decide to not have the 3700's show the length of time a traffic incident may be?
I wish there was a command to switch from 3D to 2D because there is a quite a few button pushes to do it by finger.
Isn't it just a screen swipe in 3D mode to take you to 2D and a press of the return arrow in the bottom left corner to take you back to 3D?
I have done a reset since the firmware update so hopefully that's the solution to your issue.
At this time the nuvi 3700 series does not have the ability to manually receive created routes from MapSource or any third party applications.Garmin intends to add this functionality into the nuvi 3700 series via a software update sometime in the future. Current plans call for the update to be released in the first quarter of 2011.
Every nuvi allows you to navigate to any point on the map. That assumes there's not an ocean in the way. :lol:
