3 out of 5 eggsEasy to use, not the best routes

Pros: Lifetime map updates (free), real time traffic and delays (free), large display, customized icons (the Black Pearl sails the streets for me), advanced lane guidance, and the voice does a pretty good job at pronouncing street names and destinations.

Cons: The routes it picks are not the best. I frequently have to compare what the Garmin says and what Google says on my phone. It usually doesn't tell me a delay in traffic fast enough for me to avoid it, but at least I know how long I'll sit on the freeway. It does not avoid tolls out of the box, I had to change the setting manually. I've also never seen a weather alert as advertised. The Smartphone Link did not work for some reason with my Galaxy S5, but I have not tried on my S6 yet.

Other Thoughts: Despite the cons it is not a bad unit. I still use it and I bought it in May of 2015. I once compared this unit, my old TomTom, and Google navigation on my Galaxy S6. The TomTom and Google were pretty much the same while the Garmin gave a different route all together. This unit is not bad if you've never had a GPS before and don't know anything about them, but I honestly plan on switching back to TomTom soon. This unit will at least get you to where you want to go.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPS

Pros: The GPS is one of the best I have ever had. From first look, the screen is incredibly slim and clear - it almost looks like a phone instead of a GPS. Setting it up was effortless and was very fast. It is very accurate and the interface is also quite useful for long trips, showing the nearest gas and restaurants right on the screen. Overall, I would definitely recommend this anyone looking to purchase a new GPS unit.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsBad Retailer Experience

Pros: The same GPSs purchased elsewhere have been enjoyed by the people I gave them to as gifts.

Cons: First, the Newegg search results didn't make it obvious enough that I was ordering from a 3rd party seller.
Second, Top Sales sent refurbished GPSs in generic Garmin packaging even though the listing gave no indication that the units would not be new from the factory. Third, their excuse was that a major fire had destroyed their inventory and so they sourced the items from another distributor. Fourth, I had to contact them yet again for a refund weeks after they received the units back under the RMA that was issued. Lastly, they twice promised to send a $10 check to cover return shipping but never did. Never again will I trust a Newegg marketplace retailer, or Newegg for that matter.

1 out of 5 eggsRefurbished or new?

Pros: Well reviewed unit in consumer magazines. Had to return unit due to reasons stated below. Return process was easy.

Cons: Unit purchased was refurbished even though not advertised as such on website. Verified by calling Garmin and citing serial number that unit was refurbished. Unit being returned.

4 out of 5 eggsGarmin nuvi 3597LMTHD

Pros: Garmin's Flagship navigator. Many extra features

Cons: Refurbished ?

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed that this appears to be a reurb unit. It came in a generic Garmin white box with non of the usual packing matrial or literature. Had I known, this would have been a deal breaker. I am, however accepting it, although I have had unsatisfactory experienced with refurbished products in the past....Also I thought I was buying from Newegg and it came ro a third party shipper on the East Coast. Not among my most satisfactory purchase experiences...

3 out of 5 eggsDifficult Supporting Software

Pros: Have had for only a day. Has to be good GPS according to reviews.

Cons: I spent almost half a day trying to connect to PC and update stuff. Garmin software (and there are a few that took me round and round) will not recognize the unit if connected thru the holder, the USB cable has to be connected directly to the device, bypassing the magnetic holder, and the PC. That took a while to figure out, after trying different computers and a laptop. Then Garmin Express software connected and was updating but because I had more than one browser in the PC, when the installation restarted midway, it went to the other (default) browser, it was not smart enough to know that the browser it started in was another one. May be for people who have simple set up the software and browser plugins may work without problem but if you are a little bit of a techie and like to customize your machine don't expect it to connect right away. (Does it make sense :)
I went to the Extras in Garmin Express and ... nothing happened.
Long story short: When I thought most of the updates are done I decided to transfer an address from google map to the GPS. The Garmin web site gives directions how to do it but Google maps do not support Garmin anymore, but the outdated directions are still there at garmin.com! I found the incompatibility after a lot more search. Finally figured that from Mapquest you can transfer addresses but not from Google.
I am tired after a harrowing half day struggle with this thing so do not feel like writing anymore, for instance how the plugin for either Firefox or Chrome (forget which one) takes you in an unending loop until you Ctrl+Alt+Del.

Other Thoughts: As we all know Newwegg is ultra fast in shipping but this was sold and shipped by Throwback Deals so arrived after a full week. I was very excited to order this GPS, but I am now tired just trying to set it up. I need a drink.

5 out of 5 eggsGarmin nuvi 3597LMTHD

Pros: Outstanding product and excellent service!
It is my first GPS and I love it. The price was the lowest I could find,and believe me I looked everywhere. Also, the item arrived sooner than expected and I was impressed with the packing. I worry when it comes to delicate elctronic items,but this was well protected. As I said the service was excellent, I would definetly buy from this seller again. Thanks JC

Cons: No Cons, very satisfied with service and product
