The Garmin 3790T, winner of our Editors' Choice Award, has an innovative buttonless voice command system; in this video, CNET editor Antuan Goodwin shows how to use it.
We recently awarded the svelte and lightweight Garmin Nuvi 3790T our prestigious Editors' Choice Award. However, we have always considered the 3790T to be a co-flagship model to the more fully featured Garmin Nuvi 1690 with NuLink.

Is this Nuvi just another pretty face? Well, no. With free traffic updates, Bluetooth hands-free calling, and an innovative voice command system that is truly hands-free, the 3790T crams a lot of function into its … Read more
