  • Detailed maps of North America with free lifetime¹ updates
  • Garmin Real Directions with Garmin Real Voice
  • Free lifetime² traffic alerts
  • Voice-activated navigation, Bluetooth and Smartphone Link compatible

Bright Display

nüvi 2597LMT has a bright 5.0" display with dual-orientation capabilities, for use horizontally or vertically.

Detailed Maps with Free Updates

nüvi 2597LMT arrives loaded with detailed maps of North America. With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download with no fees.

With so much data, nüvi 2597LMT makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. nüvi 2597LMT arrives preloaded with POIs, so there's no need for you to enter that address information. Just select one - or many - and navigate there, quickly and easily. You also have the ability to add custom POIs to your nüvi 2597LMT.

Garmin Traffic

nüvi 2597LMT features Garmin Traffic to help you spend more time on the move. With Garmin Traffic, your driving map remains onscreen at all times. Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and messages are spoken, too. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests. Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2597LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

The Power of Your Voice

nüvi 2597LMT has the luxury of voice-activated navigation. Speak, and your device intelligently responds; your hands can remain safely on the wheel. Of course, you can also navigate using the touchscreen interface.

Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™

nüvi 2597LMT redefines "spoken turn-by-turn directions" with Garmin Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No more stress from trying to read street names. Garmin Real Voice is refined speech technology that sounds more like a natural, friendly voice. Garmin Real Directions and Garmin Real Voice are features that are only available in our line of GPS navigators.

Bluetooth® Compatible

Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, to nüvi 2597LMT for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and speaker. Safely stow your phone in a glove compartment, pocket or purse and still make and take calls without moving your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road.

Smartphone Link Compatible

Smartphone Link is a free mobile app that connects your nüvi 2597LMT with your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone. When paired, your nüvi 2597LMT can use your phone's existing data plan³ to share information - such as where you parked, POIs and your destination.

Smartphone Link also gives you access to Garmin Live Services 4 , useful real-time information such as weather and traffic conditions. Garmin Live Services are available free and by subscription.

Comprehensive Driving Guidance You See and Hear

Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help. Bird's Eye junction view offers a detailed view of interchanges, looking down as if from overhead. photoReal junction view realistically displays junctions and interchanges along your route, including the surrounding landscape. Brightly colored arrows indicate the proper lane to drive. nüvi 2597LMT also depicts real road signs as they appear along your route.

More Information at a Glance

nüvi 2597LMT keeps your driving map onscreen at all times and additional information appears alongside. For details, simply ask or touch the screen. As you drive your route, Up Ahead constantly informs you of nearby services, including restaurants, fuel stations, hospitals and stores.

nüvi 2597LMT displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street. nüvi 2597LMT also shows school zone warnings.

3 out of 5 eggsWhen it works it's awesome

Pros: Nice size, touchscreen is responsive, easy to use.

Cons: Sometimes just hangs at 80% when calculating your route and doesn't finish it. When it does, the last 20% can take up to 20 minutes.

Other Thoughts: This may be a hardware issue or a maps issue but they need to figure it out. This should be a 5 star product.

5 out of 5 eggsGarmin 2597LMT

Pros: I have been using this Garmin for many months now and it works GREAT!! The screen is large enough to see the map while driving and the directions are clear and concise. The "Voice Command" function is easy to use especially while driving so you don't have to make manual selections with your fingers while searching for gas stations, rest areas, food. I also used it to store many future trips and when I am ready, I just retrive my saved trips and all the routes are preprogrammed. Free lifetime map and traffic updates are just what you need to keep up with all the new roads.

Cons: As with any navigation device, you must review and scan the route it chose to be sure it is the best route to your location. I always choose the main roads/interstates first, but sometimes it gets you there using some back roads. So look first and alter before you drive any long distances.

Other Thoughts: I have even loaded my trips in my home outside of the car just using the built in battery. This saved me time sitting in my car.
NewEgg has the best price and fastest delivery I have found on the internet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Unit

Pros: Worked great out of the box. Tells you what lanes in the freeway you need to be on during highway transitions. After my trip to Boston, I can say this can resolve a lot of headaches. This unit has been accurate so far with the posted speed limit. It is easy to use.

Cons: Non that I would subtract eggs for. Too many buttons to get to previous destinations in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: This unit rated well in my online research and I can see why. My Magellan took too much time to find satellites, this one is much faster. There are bad reviews that this is a refurbished unit. Although it could be, it does come in a Garmin box, just not a pretty one. Regardless, I am pleased with it.

1 out of 5 eggsReceived a Refurb

Pros: Marketplace seller shipped the unit fast.

Cons: Received a whitebox refurbished unit. I didn’t get to use the product. Requested and received refund.

Other Thoughts: I've since bought the Garmin Nuvi 2597LMT elsewhere and can say it's an excellent unit. I deducted 4 eggs from this purchase based on my experience with the Marketplace seller.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome GPS

Pros: The unit arrived and hands down it is the most user friend unit I have ever used. The touch zoom on the screen is very handy when driving. Other reviews made an issue with sun glare when driving, I did not experience that problem. I used it for close to a month in Florida. The magnetic mount is awesome because it eliminates needing to mess with the power cord and base. The unit just pops of and back on with ease. The unit is a bit pricey, but it is well worth the money if you use GPS navigation often. Coming from a older generation Nuvi, the search results populate much faster than the old unit, and offers more suggestions.
The unit arrived an time without problems, and customer service was excellent.

Cons: This is more of a Garmin issue, but the use of the Exit Services feature is useful, but needs to be more detailed. Some of the services show as generic blue restaurants and gas stations, while others show the icons of the actual name of restaurants and gas stations. This is a small non-issue that was not worth deducting and egg for.

Other Thoughts: While in Florida, and the unit sitting in the hot sun on the dashboard, I did need to restart it because it was getting a little buggy. After the restart, everything returned to normal. If you purchase the unit, be sure to do your initial map update without the magnetic base. The USB PC connection (Garmin Express) will not recognize the unit with the base attached.

Pros: Works like it should. Clear voice directions.

Cons: Russian language pack wasn't included out of the box, so it took a little while to find it.
