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.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: ;Nice unit, arrived quickly even with basic shipping.

Cons: Suction cup holder included does not hold onto glass more than a couple minutes. This is a very important item for use, thus the drop to 4 star.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Clear screen. Nice options. Actually lots of great options. Customer support was trying to be helpful

Cons: Consistent failure to find the shortest route no matter what the settings were. Failed to find basis addresses that my old Garmin knew of.
Shortest distance setting are worthless.
Fastest time settings are a joke. Not worth the $100 I spent on it.
30 percent of the speed limits North of Boston were wrong.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure what Garmin is doing but the software is a joke.

1 out of 5 eggsGarmin Nuvi 2597

Pros: Zero, None. Refuse to accept used item.

Cons: 8 Days shipping time. Shipper lives within my area. I could've picked this up in less than one hour. Bogus boxing. Came in a bubblerap bag and no Styrofoam to keep unit from being bounced around. refurbished unit, refuses to acquire satellite. I have been a Newegg customer for many years. Have built three complete computers with this company's hardware. Never have I ever received anything used or inoperative till now. This product will definitely be heading back. Don't want used items.

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.
