The size is nice, instructions are clear

Cheryl Sanford, Amazon
11 June 2015
  • Summary: This is my first time to write a review. I have consistent trouble with this Garmin giving wrong directions. Today it directed me to turn the wrong way onto a one way street, when I actually should have been going onto another street.

GARMIN will leave you STRANDED!

Brad, Amazon
18 April 2015
  • Summary: Received it quickly which was nice. I performed all the updates for it and was impressed that it had all the maps of the world and loved all the Apps it came with. Very impressed. I took a trip to Brazil, got into my rental car. Started the Garmin, plugged in the address I needed to go to.

Garmin Nuvi 2797 Is A Nice GPS Device But Warranty Is Shabby

C'est Moi, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: I received my Garmin 2797 LMT as a gift, but after less than 6 months, the internal lithium-ion battery (part # 361-00066-00) died. Alas, Garmin's 12 month Limited Warranty is very limited and expressly excludes "consumable parts, such as batteries", which is pretty shabby for a device that costs...

Horrible touchscreen.

Bo Li, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: Everything about this GPS is great except one fatal flaw. The touchscreen doesn't work most of the time. This problem was fixed by calibrating the screen. But same problem appears again the next use. I thought I had a defective unit. Had it replaced with a new one. Exactly the same problem again!

Warranty Problems

SoCalHandyman, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: I can't speak to the GPS, as I only used it a couple times in our motorhome before putting it away for the season. When I pulled it out to use the following season, it wouldn't start up. I tried the recommended procedures to fire up the unit prior to contacting Garmin customer services.

Not good at all

Dan Munroe, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: I tried 2 of this model and had issues with both if them. The first one would just lick up and not do anything until I backed up to main screen and clicked viewap again. The second one would not allow me to set the screen brightness above 20% so I couldn't see it in the daytime.

Michael Robinson, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: This is our fourth Garmin. This is the first that we have had to download all of the maps from the get go.This is the first that we have had to deal with a Spanish speaking GPS that we had to figure out how to change the language to English.

This is a joke - a very expensive one

George A. Ely, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Voice commands would be more effective if given to a toad (I speak clear English). It gives directions when you haven't asked for them. It waits till the very last second before telling you you have arrived. I have set the time four times and it still reverts to what looks to be GMT.

Locking up / fails to refresh ... all the time now! Avoid this Unit!

R. L. Carr, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: I've only been using this for about a month, but for the past two weeks, it has been locking up / failing to refresh as you drive. At first, just a few times a day, now about 50% of the time. If you're thinking about buying this one, you might want to hold off.

Garmin nüvi® 2797LMT

Ralph M, Crutchfield
14 September 2013
  • Summary: The unit works as advertised. We love the big screen and updated the map and software on day one without trouble. This is our third Garmin GPS. Traffic reports were impossible to view, and I'm not sure if it was supposed to report traffic as a stand-alone device or in conjunction with a blue-tooth...
  • Pros: Large screen. Ergonomics are convenient. Voice from unit has good diction. Our old bag mount works with the 2797 and our PC swapped favorites and other data between our old nuvi850 and new nuve2797 via USB.
  • Cons: Wrong polarization of LCD screen. It's opposite that of normal PC screens, phones, and backup camera displays. This is intolerable and the reason I'm exchanging it. Traffic reports were unavailable on a 980 mile trip this week.
