1 out of 5 eggsEarly Death Battery Not Covered by Warranty

Pros: Overall, quite a good GPS device

Cons: Poor warranty terms and lack of spares on Garmin's website.

Other Thoughts: After less than 6 months, the internal lithium-polymer battery (part # 361-00066-00) in my Garmin 2797 LMT died. Garmin's 12 month Limited Warranty is lame and excludes "consumable parts, such as batteries", which is poor for a unit that costs $250.

I was unable to find a replacement battery on Garmin's website. Google found part # 361-00066-00 at a well known auction site and for about $14, I got a new one. To replace the battery you'll need some tools: A T-6 torx bit to undo the ten small screws around the back of the case. A piece of thin, hard plastic. A short (about 3 inches long), thin (1/8th inch), flat-blade screwdriver.

Remove the 10 torx screws at the back of the case. Run the plastic 'pick' around the seam between the two halves of the case -- press it into the crack and gently twist all the way around to separate the two halves of the unit. Open the case carefully because there's a ribbon wire harness inside that links the two halves.

Pull the battery connector upwards using its wires (the connector is a push-on, rather than a plug-in type). The battery is held in the case with a piece of plastic, coated on both sides with very sticky adhesive. It has to be removed carefully to avoid breaking the Nuvi's thin plastic case.

Insert the thin flat-blade screwdriver below the corner of the battery next to the strongest part of its recess (there's a rounded plastic web in one corner of the battery pocket) and gently lever downwards on the screwdriver handle. You should hear the sound of adhesive releasing. As the adhesive starts to yield, push the screwdriver blade in a bit more and continue with gentle downwards pressure on the screwdriver handle. After a few minutes, all the adhesive should have yielded and the battery can be removed and replaced. Press the two halves of the case gently back together and carefully tighten the 10 torx screws.

5 out of 5 eggsAlternative GPS to Factory Units

Pros: Massive screen size, Free Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates, easy software interface, smartphone integration, informative display, accurate traffic update, user friendly and reasonably priced.

Cons: Display not as sharp, no case, no password protection

Other Thoughts: This is definitely a very nice and way cheaper alternative to any vehicles factory GPS option. I've used a few Garmin units in the past and they continue to deliver exceptional value. I would like to see that they bring back the password protection feature to discourage thieves.

5 out of 5 eggsGarmin Nuvi 2797LMT

Pros: Large Color Touch Screen
Bluetooth connects to phone - weather,hands free
Loud Speaker
Easy to mount
Speedometer view can be enlarged

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is my first GPS Navigator but I only purchased after reading many reviews. The speedometer can be enlarged for easy viewing which is what I needed since mine doesn't work.

5 out of 5 eggsGarmin nuvi 2797LMT

Pros: Larger screen size is easy to read. Map update works great. Hands free voice activation is well worth having.

Cons: Larger size might block some of your view if used in a smaller vehicle. This thing is the size of a small tablet...!
