Summary: Garmin 2595 did not work properly. Contacted Garmin support, they had to rebroot and update the unit. We paid for a extra 2 year warranty, did not get anything to prove we paid for it except a copy of our email showing purchase. We bought a new Garmin 2595, why should it have to have to get worked on before we could use it? Overall bad experience. Maybe someone should ask Garmin why the unit was sent to us not working properly.
Summary: Great deal on this unit. I really like the spoken street names. Really good voice command program, understands normal voice instructions. I have owned several of the Garmin units and this is one of the best.
Summary: If you stop in a parking area to shop, dine, or visit attractions keep up with how you entered and which route to get back on to continue. The unit gets "confused" and will send you in the wrong direction, then recalculates and tells you to make a U-turn. This unit does a great job for the price, while on the highways and city roads it was very accurate.
Summary: We are very happy with the Garmin nuvi 2595LMT 5" portable GPS. It gives clear directions using a less irritation voice that was on our old one and it isn't constantly telling you to make a u turn or "recalculating". I would definitely recommend this Garmen.
Summary: We decided to get a new Garmin rather than update the old one. The set up was easy and there are a lot of improvements over older models. The lifetime update feature was an attraction to this one.
Summary: I am still learning how to use the Garmin GPS and used it for the first time today and I was able to hear the directions clearly, which is a real plus for me since I think I'm a little hard of hearing. I didn't know how to tell it how to avoid the freeway so I put the address I wanted in and just ignored the directions that would have taken me to the freeway and the GPS kept right on directing me as where I needed to go.
