Great display but no more 'Recaluclating' warning

Noelle, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Great display Cons: No warning for wrong turns ('Recalculating' warning), odd combo of USB and Mini USB connections Recommendation: okay with significant reservations This is my 3rd Garmin navigation device and probably my last. My usage is almost exclusively for navigation from one point to another. But I do get seduced by all of the 'gee whiz' functions of newly released models.

Traffic updates are disappointing

S. Edson, Amazon
26 August 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. I am now unable to plug the power cable in a hidden area, hide the cord and run it to the dock, without losing traffic reception. So in order to get traffic, the power cable must lay out in the open. Poor design.

I can't trust it's alternate route suggestions

GLG, Amazon
15 August 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. For example: In downtown Los Angeles, the GPS directed me 4 miles down a congested city street in a bad part of town instead of toward a freeway on-ramp less than a mile away.

Useless

18 May 2014
  • Summary: Full of features, terrible trip calculations... Bluetooth quality is also horrible. Ended up Switching back to my old tomtom. Will try to sell it to someone else, not worth the price.

Poor accuracy routing

Adam, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: I tried it from 1400 Ottawa Street in Kitchener to London. On any Internet map this is 75 km distance. My GPS put me on 105 km travel! Later I tried it in London from Adelaide Street North to Commissioners West. This is simply traveling with one turn or, three turns if to choose a shorter way driving via Oxford Street and Wonderland Rd. But Garmin guided me through residence area, later downtown and very busy Warncliffe Rd, making nine turns!

Traffic antenna poor, routing worse

Mr T Arnold "muddy4x4", 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 across the roundabout and rejoin the same road.

Insoddisfacente

Maurizio Amelotti, amazon.it
11 May 2014
  • Summary: Ė un buon prodotto,secondo lo standard Garmin.Ha però un grande problema,che va a influire sul mio giudizio sostanzialmente negativo: la necessità, per disporre dei servizi Live, di sfruttare la connessione web di un telefono cellulare. È necessario collegare quest'ultimo al GPS via Bluetooth e a questo punto il navigatore funzionerà anche come vivavoce per il telefono escludendo però la possibilità dell'utilizzo di un normale auricolare Bluetooth.

Scarso - FUNZIONA solo con ANDROID

Michele, amazon.it
18 March 2014
  • Summary: un navigatore che non vale il prezzo, ha moltissime funzionalità, che si possono utilizzare putroppo solo con un cellulare Android. Un ottimo navigatore, ovviamente Garmin, ma questo prodotto non vale i soldi richiesti.

Spitzenreiter... ? Aber in was.... ?

CriticalUser, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Nun habe ich das nüvi 3590 LMT seit etwas mehr als einem Jahr. Viele Software- und Karten-Updates sind zwischenzeitlich ins Land gegangen. Aber glücklicher bin ich dadurch nicht geworden...ganz im Gegenteil. Verarbeitung im Allgemeinen, der kapazitive Touch-Screen und das Drumherum sind ganz OK. Aber die Software und Ihre "Spirenzchen" eher nicht.
