    Just simple conversion attempt using 3590 boot and 3597 f1_resources & fw_all doesn't work. Freezes on logo at boot, tries to restart when forced off. Flashes back ok. We need you to go under the hood Loly.

    Try on 3490 with original 3597 FW (3597 boot.bin, resources.bin and fw_all.bin), flash go OK but after restar, stuck on black screen, the same situation like when we try to flash 3590 FW on nuvi 3xxx series.
    Maybe will some other have more luck when he flash on nuvi 3790, but i think that no go becouse 35xx series have bigger screen.

    Procedure is the same like when you convert 37xx to 34xx

    remove gupdate.gcd from .System folder

    rename text, keyboard, voice folder to something else

    clear non vol

    Download rgn below

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    drag and drop on updater.exe and flash

    p.s.
    if you stuck on black screen you must find spot on screen for enter pre boot to flash back to 34xx ( above letter G, but you dont see G you must press screen on blinde)

    As you may see from the log above - the process even started crashes almost immediately.
    Should I downgrade the unit to 3790 FW and to start from this poin or it will be useless?

    It will be useless if you downgrade to 3790.
    Something is wrong on your Pc or with updater.exe, becouse on my pc was no error from updater.exe, only black screen after convertiov was done.

    I can't agree on the above as Updater is running with all other rgn files. No errors, no shut downs - perfect performance. Changing FW with no problem at all.
    There should be something else....
