Summary: a fun GPS. The voice command feature is great to use although the bluetooth feature does not include all features for every brand of phone;eg the phone book feature is not compatiable with my phone. It's only a small inconvienence. overall a good product...
Summary: I bought it more than a year ago. The suption cup holder that has a speaker build-in is losing connection. As a result, sound cuts in and out. Also, the following message is being displayed: "Serial accessory requires external power supply". I had to order another suction cup holder to fix this issue. Other than that, the GPS itself works flawlessly. I update the maps and firmware from time to time. I love free lifetime map updates.
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. Just like Goldilocks, a smaller screen would be more difficult to see, any larger would block vision and wouldn't fit into my pocket. This is just the right size.
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! My wife and I go to a camp out in the woods near Plymouth, MA each year. The 3590 found the address in seconds and guided us right to the camp despite that it was off many small back roads.
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: 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. I was able to exit the freeway in time (unlike previous models where it was too late!) 2. It remembers the Favorites I go to regularly.
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. If you have parallel roads or multiple roads leading off an exit ramp, you will be best guessing. The sites on the birds eye view is not what I expected, but good.
