    It depends on your needs, Garmin sells automotive, outdoor and marine devices and different models have different specs.
    Which are your requirements?

    I will say about Automobile.
    (my opionion) for each major features you like.

    Screen. High resolution ==> Nuvi 37xx / 34xx
    Easy to use alternative firmware ==> 3750US (can go to every Asian fw including 34xx / but no bluetooth)
    Screen + BT ==> 3760US (but can't go to every Asian fw / still can go to 34xx)
    Need to use new technology ==> 34xx (digital traffic etc)
    High resolution with big screen 5 inches ==> nuvi 35xx.

    Just need basic features (low price) ==> nuvi 30/40/50

    Many Thanks

    As you supposed I need mainly for my car, but is true that I loke a lot the mountain so maybe I could buy someone to use there also.
    I am From Spain but I would need with the maps of Europe, I dont know if it is easy to change the map in Garmin, I know that in Tomtom is very easy but in Garmin I dont know.

    I was checking the 3790T, what do you think about this model?
    About the price, it is not really problem but I would prefer not spend more than 250€ - 260€

    Thank you for you comments

    To change the maps for Garmin nuvi is very easy too.
    If you love 3790 then you have one more choice....3760!!
    You will get GTM35 / Bluetooth as 3790.
    No 3D Building and Terrain view for native but we can add these features for 3760.

    I know it's quite old but I like nuvi 500 and can be an interesting option.
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    and now obviously is quite cheap, with it forget junction view and 3D buildings, but 8 hours battery and replaceable by user,rugged, waterproof and multi-mode .
    Can receive routes from Mapsource.... no new gadgets, but all the old good features and more

    Oh, I tried to show a means of placing short links to eBay items that don't line wrap when pasted here. Immediately after hitting the "Post' button and seeing it post I then remembered outside links are not allowed "bare' fashion.

    So here's aekhong's link to that 3760, but this time in a "Code' box.

    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Just paste the item number after ebay.com/itm/<Item Number>

    Same below without the http and it isn't tripping the link translator/interpreter

    ebay.com/itm/280838792758

    ********

    I like catymags' idea of the nuvi 500 series. Water, trail, and road w/o the frills. Plus the benefit of carrying extra batteries while camping or trekking.

    ebay.com/itm/350531486614 <- Refurb'd nuvi 550 for $189US
