Disappointed, Walmart
6 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this Garmin for a birthday present for my husband and I now need to return it to Walmart because it stopped working in less than a month. At first it worked fine and I loaded all the maps on it but then after a few weeks using it, It just started to freeze up and stopped working.

  • Summary: I haven't had a chance to see how it works outside my local area yet. But, for the few times I used it "just to see" how well it gave directions, it was pretty good. However, sometimes the suggested routes weren't always what I considered the best routes to take (surface streets vs. highways).

  • Summary: There are a number of great features offered by the device, plus it has a great picture layout of maps and routes and the lifetime updates for maps is the best, but it was too difficult to operate. This was not very user friendly for me at all.

Early Death Battery Not Covered by Warranty

Noel I., Newegg
7 June 2014
  • Summary: After less than 6 months, the internal lithium-polymer battery (part # 361-00066-00) in my Garmin 2797 LMT died. Garmin's 12 month Limited Warranty is lame and excludes "consumable parts, such as batteries", which is poor for a unit that costs $250.
  • Pros: Overall, quite a good GPS device
  • Cons: Poor warranty terms and lack of spares on Garmin's website.

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...

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.
