the one i bought may have a defect.

ALPHA DIALLO, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: i don't really like maybe the the i received has a defect because it could not find an address while my galaxy note 2 had no problem finding the same address.also the reason why we wanted to have the nuvi3597lmt was because of the Bluetooth hand free which is not working at all for the gps i have purchased. for those 2 reason i can't judge it yet.

Great features but the device keeps failing

Ron, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: On my forth 3597 in 3 month and the day after I sent the last one back UPS the current one locked up, I couldn't even turn it off. I had to wait for the battery to die then plug it back in for it to reset. The 3597 before that kept stuttering at sentence beginnings. The one before that would just randomly turn off for no reason and so on. As great as the 3597 looks and all of its features it pained me to return the final one to Amazon.

Fancy feature but terrible reliability

PacificWriter, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: After bought this Garmin unit, I found it has nice features and beautiful UI display. However the joy only lasted for 2 weeks. After using it 3 times, then one day after I turn it off using the on/off button behind this unit, this brand-new GPS never powers on anymore - I have tried every method I can think of to bring it back to life (pressing the power button/attaching it to the car charger/connecting it to computer using USB cable etc), nothing helps.

Look out for worldwide distributors! anything you buy from them cannot be returned!

K. Johnson, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: Amazon is now doing business with 3rd party companies that do not allow you to return products. Worldwide distributors has a return policy that basically states 'anything electronic bought thru us cannot be returned', guess what? they only deal in electronics! Here's the story. My wife bought me the cheaper 2555 unit, when I tried to get the bluetooth to work, it didn't (thought it had it), no problem, we got it from amazon, I'll order the top of the line unit with all...

Extremely disappointing

j caruth, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this model as a repalcement car satnav as it came out top in the Which reviews. However I have now returned it as being extremely poor. It came with only Danish as voice instructions loaded. To get the traffic, it is necessary to have an aerial trailing across the car's windscreen and the mounts provided kept falling down. The traffic news failed to inform of standstill traffic on the M25 and jams on other A roads.

Too big.

Malcolm Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: Unless you want to carry all your gadgets in it, it's too big. It won't fit in your pocket, unlike your Sat Nav.

Außen hui, Innen pfui!!!

G. Michael, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: Habe dieses Navi jetzt seid einigen Monaten in Gebrauch und bin damit ca 70.000 km gefahren... Nun ja, die positiven Seiten sind schnell aufgezählt + Optik + Halterung Ansonsten ziemlich unbrauchbar... Routenführung katastrophal, Routenberechnung bei größeren Strecken nicht möglich... kommt immer die Meldung: Route wird berechnet wenn sie sich dem Ziel genähert haben...

Mist!

Thomas Krutt, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: Ein Jahr alte Karten in der Lieferung, Update auch nach dem ca 30. Versuch über Garmin Express unmöglich. Support in der Warteschleife und Verweis auf FAQ-Site. Das ist absoluter Mist. Ich ärgere mich über diesen Kauf maßlos!

Warnung: Lifetime update funktioniert bei dem Gerät nicht!

JO, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: Denn der Speicher ist zu klein. Bei 260 EUR aus der aktuellen Premiumklasse finde ich das schwer enttäuscht. Oder ist das schon Betrug? Die Gramin Hotline hat mir jedenfalls fröhlich erklärt, dass das immer so sei, dass der Speicher zu klein würde. Ist also bekannt, trotzdem schreibt man Lifetime UPdate drauf. Toll. Und das bei einem Premiumgerät. Sehr kauserig.
