Product Description

Product Description

nüvi 2597LMT

With Lifetime maps and traffic, Real Directions for more natural instructions, speed camera alerts, Live capability, hands-free calls and much more, the 5-inch nüvi 2597LMT is an advanced sat nav designed to give you a safer, faster and stress-free journey.

Crisp, High Resolution Display

nüvi 2597LMT has a 5.0" high resolution display with “pinch and zoom” capability, so you can quickly get a closer look at any onscreen information. Dual-orientation capabilities allow you to use either horizontally or vertically

Detailed Maps with Free Updates

nüvi 2597LMT arrives loaded with detailed maps of Europe. With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.

nüvi 2597LMT makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. It arrives preloaded with POIs, so there’s no need for you to enter that address information. Just select one — or many — and navigate there, quickly and easily. You also have the ability to add custom POIs.

Lifetime Traffic

nüvi 2597LMT comes with free Lifetime Traffic so you get reliable alerts to avoid incidents and congestion en route. There is comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe.

There are no ongoing subscriptions – simply use out of the box – for free.

Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and traffic reports are spoken too. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests.

Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2597LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras

nüvi 2597LMT contains our unique Cyclops Speed Camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. The full safety camera database is already pre-loaded on your sat nav. However, you can get regular or one-off updates to ensure you’ve always got the latest camera locations, so you can drive safety and legally.

The Power of Your Voice

nüvi 2597LMT has the luxury of voice-activated navigation. Simply stat your destination and your device responds; your hands can remain safely on the wheel. Of course, you can also navigate using the touchscreen interface.

Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™

nüvi 2597LMT comes with Garmin’s unique Real Navigation. This includes Real Directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. For example you may be advised to “turn left over tower bridge” or to “turn right after the cathedral”. Using prominent milestones even on unfamiliar roads means you’re not constantly trying to read street names, making your journey much easier and ensures you’re never misled. Along with this you also get a more natural sounding voice and realistic images of road signs.

Bluetooth® Handsfree Calling

¹If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.

³User’s data plan charges, if any, will apply. Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan’s data and roaming rates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and lightweight device 11 May 2013
Style Name:Europe/Updates/Traffic/Bluetooth| Size Name:5 inch screen|Verified Purchase
Bought this on the day it was released in the UK. Amazon shipped the day before and it arrived on the day of release.

I've owned many Garmin devices in the past but never a dedicated car 'satnav' - previously used an old Garmin Oregon which must be about 10 years old now (also own treking/outdoor hand-held Garmin devices).

This Garmin (2597LMT) was a fantastic update: clear display, 3D maps, voice directions and easy destination entry. The traffic alerts are a bonus too.

Two days after receiving this Garmin, I tested it 'in anger' on a one week holiday to Cornwall. The ease of use and accuracy of the directions are excellent. Arriving at the holiday cottage, a quick button press located the nearest supermarket and directed us there. Whilst en route, the 'Up Ahead' feature showed fuel, toilets and refreshments on the journey and the traffic delays were updated as we went (with the option to re-route to avoid).

This 5" screen version is big (and clear) enough for use without being too big to carry around once you get out of the car - I think the 7" version would be more of a pain to carry (even with the girlfriend/wife/fiancee's handbag to store it!).

I recommend this device!

5.0 out of 5 stars Won me over 19 Nov 2013
Style Name:Europe and N. America/Traffic| Size Name:5 inch screen|Verified Purchase
Not being a huge fan of Sat Navs I have to say this is fabulous. Purchased the week prior to going on holiday to the States, just in time to downloaded updated US maps, which did take a few hours but was well worth it. Sat Nav worked minutes after arriving and got us everywhere we asked it to, and even round a diverted route owing to a road closure. Images very clear and it's easy to use to find restaurants, shops and attractions. Did have a laugh at pronounciation of some of the US place names. The Garmin was a replacement for a Tom Tom which we had purchased a couple of weeks prior but which wouldn't let us load up US maps. Would highly recommend this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointed Garmin customer. 25 Jun 2013
Style Name:Europe/Updates/Traffic/Bluetooth| Size Name:5 inch screen|Verified Purchase
Pre ordered mine and very pleased that it arrive on day of release. Having previously had years of great service from a basic TomTom One I was a reluctant convert to Garmin but so many bad reviews of latest tomtom products persuaded me to make the change. I really only wanted to add Europe for a long driving holiday and the old tomtom didn't have that.

I have lots of reservations however about this Garmin not least of all was it failure to work properly after a couple of hours down the French motorway on day 1 of the two week drive through Europe for which I had specifically bought it (I had previously done a trip to scotland and the West country and it was fine then) ! The unit froze on us whilst driving and then having switched off would not restart it just kept cycling through a start up screen and then off again, and no amount of button pushing would stop it. Several hours of internet searching that evening and pushing bits of the screen to try to do a master reset seemed to sort it out in the end but I had by then lost all the trip data for that part of the journey, and all my favourites all put in for the trip we were on! I was not happy at all. If we had been on our own on the trip with no web access we would have had a serious issue, fortunately we had friends with us to assist and get us back on track on that day. We had paper maps etc, but not so easy locating hotels in strange town with those is it.!

A few more cons compared to my old and very basic tomtom.
You can't get all the info you need on the main screen. I want to see the current time, the distance and time to my destination all at a glance, tomtom does it, Garmin needs more presses of the screen to get all that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! 19 Mar 2014
Style Name:Europe/Updates/Traffic/Bluetooth| Size Name:5 inch screen|Verified Purchase
We bought this to replace our old Garmin as we were about to go to Poland, by road, for the first time. Amazingly you can put in your destination, which was across five countries (England, France, Belgium, Holland, germany and Poland) and it will just find the shortest route. It not only tells you, as do the others, to turn right or left but gives you the name of the street too. The only negative is that it sees delays on the route (anywhere on the 12 hour route) and asks you if you would like to take an alternative route. At first we were taking the alternative route until we realised that these delays were often 200 or 300 kilometers away and not likely to affect us but that the diversions would probably delay us more! Wish it would say how far away the delays were!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice purchase 9 Sep 2013
By kA
Style Name:Europe/Updates/Traffic/Bluetooth| Size Name:5 inch screen|Verified Purchase
I read some bad comments for this specific Garmin product, but being a previous owner of this brand I took the risk to try it for my own.

Maps update: first I activated the built-in maps by connecting to satellites. The first connection took a couple of minutes. After this step the registering to Garmin website and download and install the new maps took around 30-40 mins. I have to accept that I have a fast 60Mbs internet connection, thus the process may have been fast in my case. It was interesting that the internal memory of the device was enough to do the map update (full Europe). The previous Garmin I owned (W255) needed external memory card in order to proceed with map updates.

Navigation experience: I tested the product driving from Prague (Czech Republic)-Krakow (Poland). The overall experience was nice. I did not experience any loss of signal and liked the lane support.
One negative thing I experienced was the inaccurate info with respect to A1 motorway in Poland. While in Garmin maps it is shown as finished (i.e. no need for diversion) in reality there was a 5-7 km interruption where I had to divert in some villages in order to re-connect to A1.

TMC: Road info pop-ups appeared time after time while in CR. While in Poland I did not receive info about road diversions, probably not offered there...

Bluetooth: The connection with the mobile phone was straight forward, no issues in the process. However, the Bluetooth may need some improvement because while I could hear the other party very well I had to talk quite loud in order they could also hear me.

All in all I would recommend to buy this product.
