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.
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 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. PROs --------------------- + Screen is very easy to see, even in bright daylight + Thin for a 5" unit + No issues with polarized sun-glasses + Snappy user interface; every touch is immediately registered +...
Summary: This unit has loads of features and is a real pleasure to use with one reservation. On our recent trip to Florida we used it to find RV camp grounds and on at least three occasions found that the site had long ago been turned into a sub-division. In one case we called the phone number provided (a nice feature by the way), and the lady who answered said that they had closed the camp ground 10 years ago.
