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: I gave it 3 stars because not that the GPS is bad other then you have one time pay for live traffic updates other then that its OK the problem I have is Walmart price comparing they do it in the stores but why can't they do it online this was on black Friday for $119 in best buy store and Walmart didn't carry in store just online. If the match there competitors stores prices why can't they do the same online. Maybe Walmart higher ups will read this and make changes.
All in all I do like this model but it is not perfect.

Summary: The Garmin has a view screen that is good. You can see where you need to turn well in advance and that is the main reason I bought it. It has the Lane Assist that is great when trying to drive and watch it also. To me the most negative thing is that it has to be manually turned off and on every time you get in the car. They need to make it where it will automatically turn itself off after a certain period of not moving.
Summary: This unit does not provide the best routes. I have followed some routes this unit has given me and after driving them and becoming familiar with the area have found shorter more direct routes. This has happened on several occasions. I have kept up with the map updates. I bought this unit in January of 2014 and it has stopped working. Won't turn on. I am going to need to request a repair. Fortunately, (I guess) it is still under warranty.
Summary: Tested this out going somewhere I knew where I was going. Probably isn't the best thing to do but did find out it took routes that were really weird but would have gotten me there. The only thing is it had restaurants listed that has been gone for awhile. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I guess I expected more. I got the voice command mainly for my husband but wish I didn't.
Summary: Had one of these for myself and after using the voice command feature got one for my girlfriend who was headed to school in Texas. They made it from the northeast all the way down to Texas and didn't run into problems along the way. The biggest drawback would have to be that it is very difficult to use the voice command to input an address. However, if you are looking for somewhere like a gas station or wal mart then the voice command works fairly well.
Summary: This is my first GPS so I cannot compare is to others.Tried to download Map upgrade and I couldnt get it to download from my computer:( Haven't decided if I want to keep it for that reason. Otherwise I was pleased with purchase.
I like the bigger screen, but the other new features are inaccurate.

Summary: I bought the Garmin nuvi 2595 LMT to replace my old Garmin 2720. I picked the nuvi because of the Garmin name, larger screen and the added features over my old 2720. The bigger screen is an improvement. But the other advertised features were mainly worthless. The legal speed limit indicator is generally inaccurate. So don't depend on it when determining how fast you can drive. It tends to be somewhat accurate when you are away from cities and on a major highway.
Summary: product is exactly what I ordered, service was outstanding, received sooner than original date given, only problem I have and it is disturbing is the fact they do not send an owners manual along with the gps, only a quick start, this gps has so many options a quick start won't do it, in order to be more productive a owners manual should be included and pointed out in the advertising of said product(s), it is all about doing something the other guy doesn't, that's how you...
