I road tested a new map that I'm making on the 3790 today.
I am expanding my map coverage into PA and NY, but there just isn't any data of this quality available there
BTW Boyd, have you looked at this yet? Garmin Tool for ArcGIS Explorer?
Absolutely. South to Florida would be much quicker. 8)BTW Boyd, have you looked at this yet? Garmin Tool for ArcGIS Explorer?http://tinyurl.com/37mkpuc
Now if we can just get Garmin to get uploading of routes working on this unit, it is a good buy.
Now when people have contacted Garmin support they have been told that it is no longer planned. If this is important to you, contact Garmin and let us know what they tell you.
Here's something interesting. I haven't used my 3790 for about 6 weeks (has been replaced by my Montana), but keep it in the car as a backup. Went to try it today and it wouldn't start. Figured it was just a dead battery, so I plugged it into an AC adapter and it still wouldn't start. Waited an hour, still no go. Three hours later, still nothing. Now, six hours later it finally started up (I was about to give up...) and seems to be fine. But when I unplug the power adaptor, it immediately gives a low battery warning with just a thin red bar showing on the indicator. I would have expected more of a charge after 6 hours. Hopefully it will come back after awhile. FWIW, I am using a genuine Garmin USB charger.Anybody else have an experience like this? I guess the lesson is "use it or lose it". If I had needed the 3790 and the battery was dead like this, I'd be out of luck since it took somewhere between 3 to 6 hours to reach a working level on external power.
Personally, I think they just decided not to invest the resources in an update for an existing device. The 2400 series has the same new user interface and trip planner, but it also supports route import. So clearly, it can be done...
