User Review

SergeantTee, Walmart

  • 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. It took me three hours to figure out how to change the location city and set my home address. I worked with it for a day and a half and found it very frustration to set up.

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. I would not recommend this gps. On a good note, amazon was perfect with their return policy.

If you want a lot of frustration this is the product for you !

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 the first that came with NO manual, not even a quick and dirty version. This is the first time I have called for help and received a message to hold for 15 minutes.

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. Don't even think about buying this unit - put a rock on your dash - it will be more effective. It sends you in the wrong direction about 15% of the time.

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 phone. Visibility was fine unless I wore polarized sun glasses. Its screen is dim to invisible with the glasses on.
  • 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.

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

R. L. Carr "Wonder Why", Amazon
20 August 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. I'll try to resolve (check for firmware updates, etc., and update this review ASAP Update: After emailing Garmin Support twice and getting no response, I hooked the unit up to the PC and checked for updates.

TRy a vendor with better customer service

greenmandistllc, Ebay
9 July 2013
  • Summary: Most poor marks are for vendor purchased from. After 4 days the unit got stuck in simulation mode and would not turn on GPS.After writing to them on 7 ocations they said it was Garmins Problem and refused to help me with it. They claimed they never got my earlier messages and absolutily told me they would not help. Not even to check with Garmin and see if thre was a solution. Very poor customer service. I have now tried to connect with Garmin and still no hope.
