I bought this to supplant a more seasoned 5" garmin that did not have lifetime maps. I was becoming weary of being bothered to pay for a guide overhaul on the more seasoned unit. Likewise I needed to move up to a Bluetooth gadget. 

I am inspired generally with the enhanced velocity and refinement of this gadget. Interfacing with a satellite is enhanced extensively. Genuinely it simply takes seconds. My last unit continued scanning for a satellite association so long I was perplexed I'd become mixed up simultaneously. 

No additionally "recalculating" outcries when you go off the proposed course. It rapidly shows your new course with the proposed next turn. 

There are a lot of people more part screen "intersection view" events. These infrequently showed up on my last unit. 

The client menu and graphical presentation has likewise been moved forward. The design show up cleaner and there is a menu tab on each one screen. 

With respect to, The capacity to use as a speaker telephone when joined with your cell phone is decent. 

The Voice Command framework is great however not incredible. its fine when recounting predefined menu choices however is all in or all out (chiefly miss) when talking locations. 

The assemble of the unit is strong. Marginally more slender and curvier than past units. 

I have not had any activity alarms so truly can't remark on that capacity yet. 

I'm content with the enhanced execution of this unit. 

In the event that Voice order and the speaker capacity are not critical to you, you could spare some money purchase getting the garmin 2597lmt model.

Length: 0:34 Mins 

For work, I need to travel to diverse urban areas and drive a rental auto to distinctive location. A GPS is obligatory and following 10 years, it was time to redesign from my Magellan. I initially attempted the garmin nüvi 2597lmt, the more seasoned rendition of this GPS discounted at Costco. After a week, I took it again to Costco, I wasn't content with four real issues. 

The new model discounted here, garmin 2597lmt, was expected out at whatever time. Just needed to hold up a week and I'm truly happy I did; Garmin altered every one of the four issues. 

*the first issue I had was the means by which the old unit cut onto the base, to get it to discharge utilizing one hand, a fraction of the time it would slip crazy and tumble to the floor. The new plan gives you a chance to get a decent grasp and discharge it in the meantime. 

*the voice was ghastly, I couldn't see 50% of the road names it was stating. I have a stock GPS in my 2006 Honda that sounded 10 times clearer. The new model now sounds pretty much as clear or better then the stock Honda. 

*this new GPS has a LCD show that is not influenced by enraptured sunglasses, stunning, what a distinction! The old model would turn dull with a slight tilt of your head. 

*they disposed of the "True Picture" of slopes and passageways! Genuine picture sounds like an incredible thought, until you attempt to look at a 2.5 by 2.5 occupied picture and make out what path your assume to be in; truly awful thought. This new one uses an extraordinary fledglings eye enlivened realistic that highlights the paths you have to be in; you can simply look and see where you need to be. 

I've just had this for a brief time, however so far its surpassed my desires. There are a considerable measure of different peculiarities, however for me the top gimmicks are the fundamental ones; seeing, hearing, and taking care of

i purchased garmin 2597lmt to replace a 2350 which was good but had a bug in it (caused the 2350 to stop giving the next turn in the upper left and had to be turned off and restarted). I will compare these two in my review.

Start up time: garmin 2597 appears to go to sleep instead of turn off when you press the power button. Power up is less than 2 seconds which is great. The 2350 was closer to 20 - 30 seconds.

Security: garmin nüvi 2597lmt can not be locked, i.e. with a 4 digit pin. Not a huge deal, but I liked the feature on the 2350. I am sure thieves can find a way around this feature which is why it's not a big deal. Just don't use you actual house for home, I use the beginning of my street instead.

Screen: Here is my biggest gripe. garmin 2597 screen is excellent, it has saturated colors that are easy to read, garmin 2597lmt appears washed out and although the colors in some areas (like the purple path you follow are deep enough, they are no where near as deep as the 2350. This is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. The text is still readable, but it's been raining here for a week, so I haven't seen the screen in bright sunlight.

Text: My biggest gripe with the 2350 was although it had excellent colors, the font was smaller than it had to be. I have owned about 5 garmin GPS models and the 2350 has lots of space to put the words, but it didn't use all the space. nüvi 2597lmt has a bigger screen, but it also has a much better font. It is much easier to read and I couldn't really ask for more nüvi 2597lmt
