No original packaging, not as advertised

Rakuten
19 December 2014
  • Summary: Product purchased: Garmin nüvi 3590LMT. Came in an unsealed generic box loosely packed. Actual product labeled 3590LM (no "T) indicating not traffic enabled. This was to be a gift and was not presentable as is.

Worst of the 3 Garmins I've owned

Kelly M. Cassidy, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I absolutely love automobile GPS devices. This is my third Garmin Nuvi. It has not totally killed my love affair with Garmin, but it has dampened my ardor. Garmin quickly replaced a faulty mount, but the device itself is glitchy.

Good for the open highway, gets lost on country roads.

James D., Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this GPS because of an upcoming family vacation to Lake Tahoe. It worked very well until we were about 40 miles from Lake Tahoe then it seemed to have lost its tracking and was showing us traveling about 50 feet off the side of the road.

Traffic updates are disappointing

S. Edson, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: There is much to like about the 3590, but the new 3D traffic updates disappoint. I live in the greater LA area and if I hide the power cable in any way, I get little or no traffic signal.

User-Hostile, Clumsy, Slow

Hostile Crank, Amazon
14 January 2012
  • Summary: I will preface my review by saying that I haven't actually used it to direct me anywhere yet. The source of my burning hatred for this product is the difficulty in adding favorites. I'm planning a road trip and it would be beneficial if I could save all the hotels and POIs in advance.

I can't trust it's alternate route suggestions

GLG, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: For the price I was hoping for a GPS a little smarter than this. I can't always trust it to find the best route. When freeway traffic is heavy it will usually direct me to an alternate route, but it doesn't seem to consider the number of intersections, stops and traffic along that route.

Traffic antenna poor, routing worse

Mr T Arnold, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for a TomTom as the Map and traffic subscription had expired, and some of the routing was suspect. The Garmin is worse!!!!! routes go through town centres and deviate from main roads for no reason, at grade seperated junctions it tells you to leave the main route go...

Disappointing

davef, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought the 3590lmt to take over from my Tomtom 730t, being attracted by the free maps for life. In many ways it compares favourably with the Tomtom but the one major problem as far I am concerned is the routing.

Not satisfied with the seller

RMD, Amazon
14 January 2012
  • Summary: Not satisfied with the seller. Promised to take it back after return date has passed. then reneged. came in with no charging cord. I presently have a old Magellan GPS and it gives me more recent points of interest. Not satisfied with this and will avoid both the seller and the product.
