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.

5 out of 5 eggsNuvi 2597 LMT

Pros: Response time to connect to GPS takes less than 10 seconds. Easy to read screen even when facing the sun.

Cons: Cannot connect to vehicle sound system but can hear it ok.

Other Thoughts: Bought this unit in August 2013 and used on several long drives through eastern and mid-US, and it has performed flawlessly. Traffic advisories and Bluetooth are great as well. A great buy for the money!

5 out of 5 eggsGarmin 2597LMT

Pros: Easy to read, has Voice Commands. Clear Display, Clear Default Voice. Perfect directions even on rural country roads here in Pennsylvania. Just speak a destination by address and the Garmin takes you there. I past up the first street it wanted me to turn down and within a second or two it redirected me down the next parallel street and brought me to my destination.

Cons: There was a lack of instructions, but was easy to figure out. I love it!

Other Thoughts: Initially I plugged it into a usb port on my pc to charge it. Drivers were installed automatically with Windows 8.1 x64bit. Since this has LMT updates I went on Garmin's website and installed manually all device updates first, then the map updates next which went flawless. I even found you can download custom voices for your Garmin. I may purchase Homer Simpsons voice, but there are free voices also. Overall I would recommend this to anyone. LMT updates are what sold me on this model.
