SANS - Survey on application security programs

While the 3790T proved to be a solid navigator, there's nothing really new or out of the ordinary about the system despite the presence of trafficTrends, which plans the optimum route based on traffic flow and myTrends, which learns your journey preferences.

The road ahead

Coming to the 3790T from the Navigon 70 Plus I missed the latter's offer of a choice of routes before starting a journey and the drop down POI menus. On the plus side, Garmin's multi-stop journey planner is a thing of sublime simplicity and you get you lifetime TMC traffic alerts and speed camera data across Europe along with Bluetooth.

Elegant, with many nice touches, but needs refining for its primary purpose

Verdict

Without a doubt the most stylish PND on the market the 3790T has a superbly slick UI and a lovely screen. Also the size and weight make it perfect for carrying about with you when using shanks's pony. Yet the features alone didn't outweight the fact that I didn't find its basic navigational ability to be a match for the latest devices from the likes of TomTom and Navigon. ®

Wonderful to behold and a delight to operate the 3790T is let down by its sometimes wayward directional representation and high price tag.
Price: £299 RRP
