What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garmin nüvi 2589LMT North America with Lifetime Map Updates
  • Nice screen and mapping as well as approaching road banner on top of the screen is a plus.
  • The product is very easy to program, lots of improvements over our last one in reference to clarity of the screen, improvements in touch sensitivity, much bigger data base.
  • Really like the touch screen and the large screen size, very nice
  • I love the 5" screen where I can see a little bit better than my old one. The annoying recalculate is practically gone.
  • I love this GPS. The touch screen resembles the touch screen of a smartphone. Very accurate and fast.
Garmin nüvi 2597LMT Bluetooth Portable Vehicle GPS
  • The display is easy to read, and the posted speed limit is always a great reminder tool to not get a ticket.
  • This GPS is easy to use & the display is more helpful then my other TOMTOM. I also really like the Bluetooth function.
  • Upgraded from a Nuvi 550. Wow. Things have changed. Bigger screen, clearer graphics, incredibly detailed voice navigation
  • The touch screen is much more sensitive making it far easier to operate as well as the Voice Command function making it even easier.
  • Very easy to use, the 5 inch screen are awesome gives you variety of advance features likes warning signs for traffic, road construction, speed, time of arrival,and distance for your next turn.
  • The problem for me is the LCD screen. It has poor contrast which makes difficult to see details. I tried to adjust the display, but there is only auto, day or night setting and were no help.

What customers say about "Features"
Garmin nüvi 2589LMT North America with Lifetime Map Updates
  • Works great. Does everything you ask of it. Voice activated. She can tell it what to do instead of me. Very easy to use, constantly updates for traffic and accidents. It also lets you know way ahead of time of need detours. Reroutes within seconds.
  • Spectacular display. Excellent directions. Responds to voice inputs. Also a great safety improvement. It will not allow manual inputs while car is in motion.
  • Purchased for my wife to used, everything about this product was A+, it’s easy to used and voice commands feature was a plus
  • The voice command is reliable and very useful. I went online and printed out the manual, bound it in a folder, and keep it with the unit. Garmin makes updates so easy with their Garmin Express app. The new promps given by the robot voice are a big improvement over my older models.
  • As far as the voice recognition goes, it doesn't do so well. I told it a town that I wanted to go to in Georgia, and it kept asking if I was looking for a certain Bank in Georgia. I have used the voice recognition successfully as well. So it's not totally useless.
Garmin nüvi 2597LMT Bluetooth Portable Vehicle GPS
  • I like the Traffic feature with has come in handy several times. I also like the Bluetooth, which works well with my smartphone. I can input my location info in the smartphone app and transfer it to the GPS when I get in the car.
  • All the features I need. Voice is loud and clear. Turn direction notifications are given in time to adjust to correct lane.
  • Works with phone via Bluetooth as outstanding remote console and speakerphone. Delivers traffic so much better than the 550 - tells when and where you will hit traffic and how bad it is.
  • This item showed up at time , I like the size of the screen is big u can see the every thing better, I like the bluetooth cause I can connect my cell phone and speak with free hands also is ez to program any plase you want to go.
  • I like the phone bluetooth feature. Hands free when on the phone. Lifetime maps and traffic. It shows on a small map on the right side of the screen about traffic delays and when on a major highway the ramp shows up.
