Garmin Nuvi 3790T

Does anyone know why I can't find a place to get this model. No one seems to stock it. Dick Smiths has the 3760 for $499 but i'd rather the 3790T as it comes with voice recognition and I can make calls without touching the screen with the better model.

Can anyone help. thanks.

Have you had a Garmin before?

I have a Garmin currently, used to have a TomTom. Much preferred the TomTom's route guidance and trip timing. Garmin is pretty 'Dumb' and never gets trip time right (ie. has no idea that a road with lots of sets of lights might make your trip longer).

No, first one. Had a play with both models and found the Garmin's interface easier to use. I also must keep in mind that it's my miss's that will use it mostly and she's technochallenged.

Plus both models have had some good reviews.

According to Garmin's web site, the 3790T is available in Australia only, whereas when you click on the details of the 3760 it says Australia and NZ.

Yeah, it says Oz & NZ but I can't find anyone who stocks... yet anyway.
