Garmin nuvi 2597LMT

16 October 2013
  • Conclusion: For $130 less than the top-of-the-line Garmin nuvi 3597LMTHD (Est. $350) , the Garmin nuvi 2597LMT car GPS offers most of the same features. You'll miss out on the Garmin nuvi 3597LMTHD's sparkling-sharp glass screen, slick magnetic mount and high-end traffic info -- all helpful stuff, but experts say the 2597LMT is hardly stripped-down. In fact, it's the best car GPS value around.
  • Pros: Matte touch screen won't glare in sun, Clean, easy-to-read maps, Voice commands, with conversational speech, Free lifetime maps and traffic
  • Cons: Power cord attaches to the device, not the mount, Touch screen isn't multi-touch

19 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Garmin nüvi 2597LMT inherits many of the positive characteristics of its more expensive sibling while leaving an extra $130 in your pocket. But the question we ask every time we review a GPS is whether it's worth it to buy a dedicated device rather than using a free app on a smartphone. In the nüvi 2597LMT's case, the answer is yes—especially if you don't have, or want to use a smartphone.

Expert Review

7 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Il Garmin nuvi 2597LMT è uno dei navigatori più accessoriati della nuova gamma presentata quest’anno da Garmin. Presenta quasi tutte le funzionalità del top di gamma, vale a dire il 3597LMT, tranne l’EcoRoute di serie. A parte tutte le funzionalità avanzate presenti, la caratteristica più importante è l’aggiornamento gratuito a vita delle mappe. Anche su questo modello, però, mancano tutte le funzioni multimediale.
  • Pros: Indicatore di corsia dinamico; Limiti di velocità; 3D Traffic; Comandi vocali; Aggiornamento mappe gratuito per sempre; Funzione Real Direction; Zone a traffico limitato ; TMC incluso; Bluetooth; Punti di interesse
  • Cons: No funzioni multimediali
