Amazon.com

Experience uniquely personal navigation from the elegantly slim nüvi 3750. It features a multi-touch glass display, nüRoute technology with trafficTrends and myTrends, and lane assist with junction view.

Less than 9-mm thick.

Versatile and compact for car or pedestrian use.

Award-Winning Design
The new nüvi is less than 9-mm thick, about the same as a standard #2 pencil. It has a full glass 4.3-inch diagonal multi-touch display. Dual orientation capabilities allow you to use the nüvi 3750 either horizontally or vertically, fitting smartly in your hand when walking. Sleek design also disappears neatly into your pocket or purse. With a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it's ready to guide you by car or foot.

Experience nüRoute Technology with trafficTrends and myTrends
Smart and good-looking, this uniquely personal navigator comes with advanced routing capabilities that include trafficTrends and myTrends. There's no subscription necessary and no added costs; your nüvi 3750 just does it.

With trafficTrends, your nüvi 3750 automatically learns daytime trends for traffic flow to improve your routes and better predict your estimated time of arrival based on time of day and day of week. And you get free trafficTrends updates every time you connect your device to myGarmin.

With myTrends, when you save your regular destinations in your "Favorites," your nüvi 3750 will, over time, begin to figure out where you're going even without your telling it! It provides time of arrival and relevant traffic information. So whether you're driving to and from work, or a regularly scheduled weekly event, your nüvi 3750 will help you get there on time.

Know the Lane Before It's Too Late
No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route, along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.

Dual-orientation capabilities allow you to use the nüvi 3750 either horizontally or vertically, fitting smartly in your hand when walking.
Navigate City Transit
With its enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities and dual-oriented screen, nüvi 3750 is the perfect travel companion to help you get around town. Download optional cityXplorer content to help you navigate the big city. In addition to knowing where to walk or where to catch the bus, subway, tram, or other transportation, you'll also have access to mass transit schedules and estimated travel time to your destination. cityXplorer maps are available for select cities throughout North America and Europe. And with prices as low as $9.99, you'll have money left over to spend in the big city.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 3750 has an intuitive interface that greets you simply: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services, and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes pre-loaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps for the U.S, Canada, and Mexico, with nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs), such as stores, restaurants, hotels, entertainment venues, gas stations, ATMs and more, as well as speed limits for most major roads.

Go Beyond Navigation
Also offered on nüvi 3750 are standard nüvi features that go beyond navigation. For example, ecoRoute--a green feature that helps you calculate a more fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage, and more. Also included are travel tools such as a JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator, and more. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and navigate to them. It's also compatible with lifetime traffic alerts (receiver purchase required). With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations, and fuel stations. It also has Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards.

For me the 3750 was the perfect balance between features and price. I really wasn't interested in the extra bells and whistles of the higher priced 3700 units so I was thrilled when I found this one. I'm upgrading from a Nuvi 250 and the difference is a quantum leap. This is just a stunning device. It's got a huge, beautiful display. The 3D display zooms in and out smoothly. It makes my old 250 look beyond primitive. I was also shocked at how light and thin it is. The biggest improvement is that the charging is done from the base, which means no more unplugging/plugging the cable when you want to take the unit with you. You simply pop it out of the base and you're done. There are tons of interface improvements. My favorite is that you can easily find out your latitude and longitude, nearest address, nearest intersection, as well as the nearest location of emergency services. I've always found the interface on Garmin units to be vastly superior to other competitors. I am thrilled with my purchase.

First off is that the small screen on the 3750 is easy to see on a sunny day. I can actually read the text and see the maps. This certainly wasn't the case with my four year old Nuvi 350. And the flat form factor makes it easy to drop into one's pocket. These two points alone make this a significant upgrade from my geriatric 350. Also there's a speaker with decent volume built into the windshield mount to take over from the itty bitty 3750 speaker.

And they kept Aussie Karen as my voice from beyond.

Now some points based on cruising around my stomping ground... The 3750 seems to like to route me a little to the right of the most direct routes. During a recent test run the unit sent me nearly a mile out of my way on a seven mile jaunt. Well it would have been seven miles but the Nuvi sent me eight miles. Was it trying to avoid traffic lights? Beats me but the trip took about seven minutes longer. My old 350 never went rogue with route calculations (well there was that forestry road once).

Another point is that the 3750 is supposed to run for up to four hours on its internal battery. Even with the back light set at 10%, I'm getting way less than that.

Also Garmin doesn't even include a cheap vinyl carry case. I picked up a five dollar Tom Tom case that provides a nice "loose" fit.

The only manual with my Nuvi was a quick start micro booklet that pretty much will leave you to your own devices for figuring things out. Fortunately most functions are self-explanatory.

Garmin did include a disk that's smooth on one side and sticky on the other. This allows me to mount the unit in an unused portion of my car's info screen and keep the GPS outta sight of anyone with itchy fingers (and no, I don't leave it mounted unattended by me).

Anyhow I do like the unit but wonder if its routing software might be in need of a little tweaking.

I've owned so many Garmin products over the years, it's hard to keep count. Currently, I have a unit for running, biking and two for cars. Probably owned 7 units before that, so I know Garmin. I love their interface - as opposed to Magellan or TomTom - and I was excited to read about the 3700 line because of its similarities to the iPhone/iTouch and its sophisticated software. Well, now that I've got a 3750 with a cracked, completely unusable screen, here are my topline thoughts:

Pros:
- love the size. It's thin and very sexy
- love the UI software. Again, Garmin rules!
- great cradle mounting unit with built-in speaker. The turn-by-turn directions are LOUD and clear

Cons:
- glitchy touchscreen. I had to touch input buttons several times to get the unit to respond. Uncool.
- glitchy software. The "voice" would often break up and stutter when giving directions. Also, directions were inconsistent. I was in San Diego for pleasure (Comic-Con) and traveling the same route every day. Every day, it seemed this Garmin would try to take me on a different route. I ignored the directions to follow the route I knew, and it took forever for the unit to "recalculate" and give me the correct directions.

BUT, biggest CON #1 is this: the 3700 line is VERY fragile. And I mean VERY. I was putting the 3750 into my daughter's backpack for a long day at Comic-Con, and it dropped onto a cement floor. No more than 2 feet. The screen disintegrated into nothingness.

Now, I know what you're saying to yourself: "Well, you dumb***, you dropped it on concrete - what do you expect?" Well, to be honest, better durability than that. I've so many smartphones over the years (currently iPhone 4) that I've dropped small distances - no problem.

Hardware quality rated 1 out of 5 (poor): I was on day two of my vacation in New York City when the GPS decided it was no longer going to power on, unless it was connected to external power. I'll spare you the gory details, but let's just say Garmin technical support consists of emailing to them and a different person responding to each query which causes a loss in continuity. After I did what the tech guys said to do, while I was on vacation, they were non-responsive to my request for them to overnight me a replacement. Thank God I bought it at Amazon. I'm returning the GPS, obviously. Never will deal with Garmin again. Enough said as I'm taking time from my vacation to issue this review so others won't be sucked into buying this piece of defective equipment offered by a company (Garmin) who will not stand behind their products.

Software features rated 1 out of 5 (poor): Aside from the issues covered under Hardware, above, there were a number of concerns on the software side. First, the maps aren't as detailed as they could be, and not all roadways are labeled correctly. This became a huge problem in Minnesota where I was forced to just follow the path on the screen as many of the roadway names were incorrect. Also, the mapping system failed to adequately show major terrain features - i.e. lakes and trails - where they should be. Other difficulties were that the system has no convenient way to dim the display. Other simple, but often used tasks, are buried in menus several layers deep. The menus are not intuitive, and it takes a bit of poking around to figure it out. Does not show what road you are currently traveling on. Does not show towns clearly. Does not give a clear indication of nearby streets. Does not show nearby amenities (e.g.
