Summary: Menu system is very complicated. I have yet to figure out how to create favorite places to go. However, the computer inside it processes information from the satellite quickly. Also, you can't play music on it, like I could on my old one.
Summary: The volume is great. This is a good looking unit. The GPS direction needs improving. One point, when you get off the exit ramp and need to go left or right down an access road, the unit does not recognize the difference and you must choose and wait for re-routing to find the right exit.
A keeper. Good instructions, great graphics, very responsive.

Summary: I've returned every GPS in the past 10 years. Regardless of price, I hated them all. This is the first GPS that I'm keeping. This is a great unit for reducing traveling stress. The 5" size is perfect.
Summary: As with all GPS units it sometimes takes you out of the way when there is a shorter route that is faster. Yes, the unit is set for faster route. The service glass reblects ambient light on bright days - a distraction.
Summary: I'm a very long-time Garmin Nuvi user, and when the 3590LMT was first advertised I signed up right away. I am disappointed in a number features with this version. One of the main disappointments is that it will not upload my phone book from my smartphone.
Summary: I had never owned a GPS device prior to recently purchasing the Nuvi 3590LMT. My wife was especially skeptical about the necessity for such a device. Well, we just took our first trip with the Nuvi and she and I are both sold on the device. It was fantastic!

Summary: I have owned the Garmin Nuvi 6xx and 8xx series, and also had a chance to use last year's equivalent model. 1. Traffic information works really well. It alerted me of upcoming, heavy traffic on a number of occasions, saving me a lot of headaches getting stuck.
Summary: I briefly owned a Nuvi 3490LMT and found it to be a great GPS. Shortly after I purchased the 3490LMT this 5" model was announced. I returned the 3490LMT and ordered the 3590LMT that very day. I am pleased to report that the Nuvi 3590LMT is also a great GPS navigator.
