Summary: This is my fifth Garmin and third Nuvi. Top of the line and no expense spared. I drive cross country a few times a year and live in LA and NYC so I am in the heart of GPS land. First the good points: exceptionally clear imagery and accurate locations. Much better than recent models and more useful. Good size and easy to use. But the screen takes getting used to and those right screen lane illustrations are damned tricky.
Need to have mount attached if going to use charger

Summary: I just got this Nuvi 3590 yesterday and I have to say that I was impressed a lot with the features of the unit except for 2 issues, one of them of which I think is a major flaw in design. (1) If you want to use the charger, which you need to use if you want the traffic feature, you have to have the mount attached to the unit since the charger doesn't have a place to plug directly into the unit. It will only plug into the back of the mount.
Summary: I've had this GPS for about a week. I am very happy with most aspects of this device. Screen and maps are great, better than any other I have seen. Voice recognition is excellent. I only wish more features (such as screen zoom) were available through voice control. Routing has been perfect so far. POI list is excellent as well. Smartphone link is a great idea but incomplete without IOS support. This would be a 5 star review except for one major blemish.
Summary: I should have chosen one of the models that cost half the price and does almost exactly the same job. But that's not the real problem. I find it very frustrating to enter an address -- it keeps on giving me one of the surrounding keys, and when I correct an error several times in a row it wipes everything out and makes me start all over again.
Summary: I can only give 3 stars as although I love the tablet-like look and feel of this unit it has caused some frustrations. Here are my three problems and the solutions I found. 1. MAP UPDATING PROBLEM. I was unable to update the maps following the instructions. The solution was to download lifetimeupdater.exe and run that NOT to follow the instructions in the manual. 2. LOCKED IN DEMO MODE. This is not obvious.
Summary: The reason for choosing this product was the free map updates. Positive * It is very thin and stylish Negative: * Overpriced. * Does not come with the mains charger or carry case and I believe at least the charger should have been included in the package. * Device does not charge unless you switch it on. * Licence agreement comes up on the screen every time you switch it on which I find quite annoying.
Summary: Ich habe damit keine guten Erfahrungen gemacht... es ist schick, hat aber signifikante Macken: 1. Immer wenn es darauf wirklich ankommt, z.B. am Frankfurter Kreuz, versagt es und geht in einen Display-Modus, wo die Karte kaum lesbar ist, so klein. Resetten half da leider nichts. Auch sonst ist die Displayeinstellung variabel, mal gut lesbar ud groß und wenn es Lust auf micro hat, dann plötzlich sehr klein. Auch das Ausschalten der 3D Darstellung half leider nichts. 2.
Summary: Habe mit freuden das Navi erhalten, doch leider waren Software Probleme und ich mußte es wieder zurückschicken. Aber dank AMAZON war das kein Problem. Kann nur jedem empfehlen über Amazon zu bestellen !!!
