Garmin nuvi 3750 Best choice for local driving
As an owner of the Garmin nuvi 3750, and it’s main competitor, I can say the unit is well priced, on pat with the current market for a good GPS unit. The 3750 allows for easer address/destination input than the nearest competitor unit and get you to that destination in short order. The voice prompts of the 3750 presume you already know the area and road layout, so one needs to pay close attention to road and street signs, because the voice prompts for intersections, turns and destination come very close to said turn, intersection, so care in speed must be taken, especially in high speed highways, thoroughfares and the Interstates. The 3750 will rout you via a toll road which is the fastest and most efficient means of vehicle travel, but for those of us who wish to avoid toll roads, you have to contend with a CONSTANT voice prompt saying “recalculating” and trying to reroute you back to said toll road your trying to avoid. That is annoying. If you are a confident driver, the Garmin nuvi 3750 is a good GPS devise to use!Read full review
Garmin 3750 - Eloquent styling and clarity.
I'm a GPS user and absolutely love the 3750, but it's not for everyone. Some of it's stronger points are it's glass styling, thin body, and responsive screen which can be rotated with the screen orientation moving like an iPhone. It quickly finds a satellite link and route. With that said it's not for everyone and what draws me to the unit may be a detractor for others, the glass screen. Web reviews state the screen can become scratched or crack if your a user who tends to throw their GPS in the glove box or center console without much concern. The other downfall of the glass screen is glare. Unlike the matt finish on the usual plastic screens the 3700 series glass screens have a reflective quality. Users who purchase this unit on its styling and higher def screen will have to accept it's reflective nature. For the price LTM should have been included, but if your looking for that feature Garmin sells the 3760 for a little more. Overall, I love this unit. The 3700 series is the most beautiful on the market and is a conversation starter as it's styling is immediately noticed by others.Read full review
Being Garmin, this is a very good unit overall.
The G3750 is a good unit. I have had 2. Accidentally cracked front glass and Garmin price to repair is approx $150. Even they suggested new purchase instead! Nice packer too, with it's slim design. Typical Garmin unit here, in that it is easy to set up/navigate with. Very little/nothing you really need the 'how to' manual to figure out. Retail on these is high, approx $320. Pretty easy to find for lots less. I actually picked this model because of the charging recep being the smaller square kind, same as my Blackberry. That simplifies having to carry around so much stuff. Battery life on these are not very good. Maybe an hour approx. Is good to keep it plugged in or close to.
The Best GPS available on the market!
I did a lot of research before buying the Garmin Nuvi 3750. I read reviews about the Garmin Nuvi 3760 and 3790. The only difference I found was that the 3760 had lifetime traffic and the 3790 had lifetime map updates. The lifetime traffic had one thing that did not appeal to me was that pop up ads come on the screen and i did not want it. So I went for the 3750. I bought the lifetime maps update card in a sale from bestbuy and that solved my problem for the map updates. Pros: 1- Awesome touchscreen. 2- Awesome color screen. 3- Accelerometer 4- Signal power 5- Lane assist Cons: Fingerprint magnet(but it can be solved by placing a protective screen which is available for $3 on ebay). Adding the phantom alert to it makes it alot more useful. I have already added it as premium feature.
