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.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: The large size is the best feature. Add to that the lifetime map downloads, bluetooth, parking spot locator (which is a great feature when at large sporting events, concerts, etc.), real easy set up and use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Since I have a difficult time seeing up close without my reading glasses, the very large display is an outstanding and very welcome feature. Highly recommend especially for older people.
