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 2599LMTHD GPS Navigation System with Bluetooth
  • Voice Commands work very well, especially for saved locations. It calculates & recalculates very quickly. It starts and restarts quickly.
  • like it a lot really like the Bluetooth and voice command
  • Although many have complained about the voice command, I have not had any problems using it at all. I love the traffic feature and am grateful that it is built-in the unit.
  • I found this feature very helpful in heavy St Louis freeway traffic, where exit ramps are located on both the right and left.
  • Garmin has removed all security locking features from their Nuvi line. You can no longer PIN lock the device. If it is stolen the thief has full access to your home location, phone data, and driving routes.
