    Default Garmin Dashboard on nuvi 3790

    Today I received a prestine second hand nuvi 3790 to play with, It's my intention to flash one of them with the 34xx firmware.
    Before I do that I want to know what updates the 3790 dashboard on S/W v5.00

    originally I thought this was done by the Garmin webupdater app ,but doesn't appear to be the case?

    Both devices under "about" apart from Unit ID obviously share the same information, as follows....

    Model nuvi 3790
    Unit ID: **********
    Software version 5.00
    Audio version 2.50 British Emily
    Text Version 3.10 British English
    GPS Firmware 2.60
    Bluetooth Firmware 3.0.35 P55
    PMIC Version 824
    TSC Version 1.23

    The only mod I did was on the older device, which came from TSC version 1.16 to 1.23, but that obviously bares no relation to the dashboard anyway.
    Both dashboards are totally different,
    My original unit has the dashboard to the right of the screen, while my other has the older style dashboard which is a bar at the bottom of the screen which allows the map to be viewed more.
    Anyone here know how to change dashboards in the 37xx series?
    Thanks.

    If you convert your 3790 to a 3490, you will be able to design your own dashboards.

    netwave wrote that he have the initial (original) Nuvi 3790 with GPS Firmware 2.60. I think such conversion make his GPS module not quite workable for position precision definition...

    yep!
    Been reading all those posts regarding 37>40 satellite reception accuracy problems
    However my latest GPS unit came with hardware V11 instead of my original hardware V8
    So followed Caty's guide & flashed 34xx on the nuvi with V11 hardware.

    It upgraded the GPS firmware to 3.04.03 from 2.60
    flashed with v8.20 software for the 34xx & it works flawlessly (no arrow jumping)

    I'm interested to know if my Original nuvi with V8 hardware, v5.00 software could somehow have that single dashboard replaced for the glass semi transparent dashboard which allows more map viewing...
    I don't mind experimenting now I have a backup device if anyone thinks It's doable

    You mean without converting it to 3490 i guess. No, 3700 series doesn't have firmware supported for customizable dashboards as does 34/3500.
