FWIW, here is the Nuvi 3790 product announcement from 2010 :) garmin.blogs.com/pr/2010/04/garmin-nüvi-3700-series-redefines-look-and-feel-of-personal-navigation-.html?activeBranchId=newsroom#.WZx0ha2ZPog
"the road ahead never looked so realistic, thanks to the unprecedented details of 3D terrain and 3D buildings. Whether you’re heading for rolling hills or urban canyons, the shaded topography and realistic landmarks provide unrivaled context and enhanced situational awareness."
Have to say, that makes me miss "the good old days" when Garmin was producing something to actually get excited about....
I would have called her bluff on that. :D
Found the download link for GarminMapUpdater - try this and see if it works: http://download.garmin.com/lmu/GarminMapUpdater.exe
Garmin has a mapupdater program but it is not clear whether they still support it and I don't think they offer it as a download anymore. Here's one recent thread on the subject:
However, if it has been 5 years since you updated your Nuvi, I suspect you're out of luck. Awhile ago Garmin changed their update policy. See this: http://www.garmin.com/us/maps/numaps_lifetime
"A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more."
If it doesn't work as well as a recent model phone then I'd say something is probably wrong with it. Their first capacitive screen model, the Nuvi 3790, had a lot of touchscreen issues like this. But the newer ones seems to be very good.
Does the Drive 60 have a resistive or capacitive screen? I can't keep up with them anymore. ;) Some older resistive screen models had this kind of problem too, like the 1xxx series. But that was quite awhile ago. If yours is still under warranty I don't think you should settle for a problem like that.
