When it works it's awesome

  • Summary: This may be a hardware issue or a maps issue but they need to figure it out. This should be a 5 star product.
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This product is my 3rd garmin they are very easy to use. The split screen makes knowing when to change lanes a doodle and the feature of where petrol station and restaurant are on the way is very useful. This is a great product.

  • Summary: I had good experiences with the previous two Garmin GPS products I purchased. However, this one was not corrected at whatever facility looks these over. I do not mind factory refurbished products because they generally undergo higher scrutiny or testing then a new product. Everything on the GPS worked fine except for Garmin traffic. This was the main reason I purchased this product.

didn't come with free case or traffic!

  • Excerpt: Needed this device in a hurry so had to buy. Other providers provide free traffic updates AND a free case. All I got offered was a case with 50% off. Sat Nav also sent me the wrong direction first time I used it as it didn't seem to know left from right - sending me in the opposit direction whilst going to North Englad via the M5 (tried sending me towards Bristol) when I was driving on M50 from Cardiff.

  • Summary: The Nuvi 2597 LMT GPS is a good unit for getting from point a to b. The unit is not designed to alert driver of traffic enforcement camera locations for red lights and speed. The unit was shipped with a standard power cord, so the traffic alerts do not function. Traffic alerts require a special power cord with a built in antenna. The price was right for this very average unit.

  • Summary: The unit was a great price ($124) until I learned the FM traffic receiver cable was not included with the lifetime traffic. I had to buy one online for an additional $66 plus sales tax (in TN 9.75%). So the unit wasn't a bargain at all! I have a Garmin 2595 that I think the world of. The 2595 is a fantastic unit and the reason I bought the newer 2597 model for my wife.!
