Today, Garmin issued a recall for select Garmin Nuvi devices.  This recall only affects the Nuvi 200W, 250W, 260W and 7xx (where xx is a two-digit number) models.  The battery in the GPS device has the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire hazard.  You can go to this website to see if your unit is recalled by entering its serial number.  For more information, please contact our Mobile Department.

Garmin at Abt

Hi, I’m Carl P. and I’d like to tell you about the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T.  When my helicopter is in the shop and I’m forced to drive my Tesla Roadster Sport to dinner (which is currently on display at the Abt atrium until tomorrow), I use this device to get me from point “A” to “B”.  It gives great directions every time.

The look and feel of this GPS is extremely elegant and complements my high-profile lifestyle perfectly.  It’s only 4.8” wide, 2.9” high and 0.35” deep so it fits into the pocket of even my tightest fitting skinny jeans.  The display is a glass screen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution so the quality of the picture on the screen is unparalleled when compared to other GPS units.

It has some pretty amazing features too.  When my fingers are tired from signing autographs all day, I can just tell it where I want to go and it finds the location without having to type anything.  It also has the ability to memorize your typical routes based on how frequently you drive them and what times of day you are out.  This is great for those times I am too busy rescuing kittens from burning buildings I can’t even remember how to get home.

If you lead an adventurous lifestyle like me, or just need help getting from here to there, check out the Garmin Nuvi line of GPS units at www.abt.com or call one of our knowledgeable sales associates at 888-228-5800.
