The 2013 Advanced Series nüvi 2797LMT offers improved, intuitive guidance that feels like driving with a friend. The nüvi 2797LMT has a brilliant 7" dual orientation touchscreen display so you can view your directions in either landscape or portrait view.

The Garmin nüvi 2797LMT includes FREE Lifetime map updates for 45 European countries including the UK and Ireland, for the life of the device. Map updates are available to download up to four times annually which means you can drive with the latest road and Point Of Interest information. The Garmin nüvi 2797LMT includes preloaded street maps for full Europe including; Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (and Corsica, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Reunion and Saint Barthelemy), Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Republic of Macedonia), Romania, San Marino, Serbia & Kosovo, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Vatican City.

FREE Lifetime Traffic Updates for the life of your nuvi 2797LMT allows you to receive 3D traffic information to your nuvi sat nav to route you around accidents, construction and other obstacles to save you time, no subscription required. Delivered via traditional RDS-TMC, the service combines trafficTrends historic route data together with information on the current traffic situation to identify congestion and incidents on your planned journey. An astonishing 80 million sources are used to understand what's happening on the roads, with comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe. If there are queues, you'll be offered an alternative route to avoid incidents and congestion en route.

Sync the nuvi 2797LMT with a Bluetooth enabled smartphone for hands-free calling for safer driving. Smartphone Link is a free application that enables a compatible nüvi and Android phone to use an existing data plan to share navigation information and access Garmin Live Services, useful real-time information such as traffic and weather and allows you to perform last mile navigation on your smartphone to final destination or parking location. With the Advanced Speech Recognition, your Garmin nuvi 2797LMT sat nav responds to your voice commands so your hands can remain safely on the wheel.

The Garmin nüvi 2797LMT includes Real directions with real voice and real signs, exclusive to Garmin, provides more natural navigation using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights as references. This new feature tells you to "turn right after the Starbucks" or "turn left at the traffic light" providing you with confidence early on that you're going the right way and lets you focus on the road instead of trying to read street signs. Active Lane Guidance uses a combination of voice prompts with visual cues to prepare users to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. It displays an animated graphic next to the map view that uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed to make a turn.

PhotoReal and BirdsEye Junction View shows the lane you need to be in at upcoming major junctions and exits with incredible detail of your surroundings right down to the trees, bridges, pylons and accurately reproduced road signs for confident navigation and reassurance you're on track. BirdsEye Junction View shows a detailed view of junctions looking down from overhead. Another great feature included on the Garmin nüvi 2797LMT is the Up Ahead function that provides easy access to points of interest nearby. Services such as restaurants, hospitals and petrol stations appear alongside your map and update as you drive along your route.

The Garmin nüvi 2797LMT shows your current speed and the speed limit for most major roads are displayed and an accurate arrival time for your journey planning. Cyclops Safety Camera information provides alerts of speed cameras along your route, including fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary speed cameras. The trip computer records mileage, maximum speed, total time and more. The "Where Am I?" emergency locator tells you your coordinates and the nearest address, intersection, hospitals, police and petrol stations. The Garmin nüvi 2797LMT includes over 5 million Points of Interest including restaurants, hotels, theatres, airports and petrol stations. You can personalise your sat nav - your vehicle icon may be customised with a quick visit to garmingarage.com.

Style Name: UK & Europe Maps/Map Updates/Bluetooth/Traffic AlertsSize Name: 5-inch Screen
I have owned TomTom devices for the last 6 years and have got through 3 of them now. Appalled by the consistently poor(non-existent) service offered by TomTom and the fact that my last two devices have basically died and won't even turn on without being plugged in to a power source I decided to try something else. Believe me, this was not a decision I took lightly as I had been loyal to TomTom for years and very nearly bought the new TomTom Go 5000/6000. I tried both out extensively and decided against the new generation of TomTom device as it has been released in an appalling state of development and should never have been released - just google reviews for it to see what people have to say! There is very limited functionality and I think this new generation has gone for 'pretty' in terms of graphics rather than a proper user interface. Anyway... the Garmin nuvi 3598 is the best SatNav I have ever used by a country mile. The touchscreen is clear and responsive, the voice control works! But more than that, the interface is engaging and interactive. It has taken a little while to get used to from being a TomTom user for years but I have persevered and it has been worth it. The performance exceeds anything I have seen from TomTom in a multitude of ways. Here are just a few of them:

Real-signs are shown which actually look like the ones on the motorway
Junction numbers come up on screen and are spoken making navigation easier
The digital traffic is the best I have ever used, 30 second updates make the information meaningful and you can see delays building long in front of you, helping you make informed decisions about routing. This is far superior to TomTom traffic which I have been using for 4 years and thought theirs was good.

Having read all the reviews of most of the SatNavs on the market, I settled for the Garmin 2508LT-D.

The issue I had with all the reviews is that they are very mixed. Lots of people adore a specific SatNav, and lots of people hate the same unit! This makes it very difficult for people like me to establish which is the best to go for.

I have had an old TomTom One unit for many years, and whilst it was okay it did struggle with some of the navigation. I also spent a whole day connecting it up and getting the latest maps etc. which was a total nightmare with TomTom (something others have commented on in their reviews).

I do a lot of miles in a car, though largely on motorways and A roads. I live on the South Coast of the UK so I am frequently up the M3, the A34 to the M40, and north of Bimingham to Manchester or up to Doncaster and back.

My key requirements were: 1. Good screen that is easy to read in the daytime but also when dimmed at night/early mornings. 2. Live traffic updates. 3. Decent navigation accuracy. I have no need for voice activation as I typically put a postcode in and 3 hours later I arrive. I also have no need for integrated Bluetooth or mobile as I also have a phone installed.

In terms of the screen, this unit is really good. Clear, no fuss, nice alerts at the top of the screen, easy to setup and it worked out of the box. At night it auto-dims (or you can set the brightness manually) and I've done around 5,000 miles with it and still find it a great screen. I typically have it on mute, but you can turn the volume down to a low level and still be alerted to speed cameras etc. without intrusion (nothing worse than a SatNav constantly beeping at you - this one doesn't, and you can configure the warning sounds etc).

I have purchased tom tom for over 20 years however although the HD traffic is good be aware! The availability of the service is appalling. After being asked by Tom Tom to renew my subscription (50 quid) I thought it was time to ditch them and try Garmin. This is an excellent product, the quality is much better than tom tom and the traffic uses the RDS traffic system. However if you do want to link to the live traffic through your phone the subscription is much cheaper although you do need to use your phones data service.

The product looks and feels like an apple product such is the finish and the screen is much better than rival tom tom devices. It's less bulky although the traffic receiver is external to the device (but very small and built into the wire).

The traffic options for Garmin are confusing there are three different options one is traffic via the FM, one is via the DAB frequency and one is via a smart phone (Internet link). The difference between the FM and DAB is the speed of the transmission DAB is every 30 seconds and FM is every 1-2 minutes. The smart link (phone) system is live.

I think I am a convert, it's a shame tom tom provide such a poor service, I doubt they would provide their service availability stats but trust me they are very poor - just read the other reviews here.

Ranked No 3 in this years Auto Express Sat Nav test, No's 1 & 2 are considerably more expensive and offer no better features or quality. This is a good sat nav. It looks good with a large, clear screen and it knows where it's going!!! Redirects quickly should you miss a turn or find your way blocked etc. The free accessory pack that came with it and the fact that it's £30 more everywhere else made my mind up to buy it.
Ignore the silly negative review from one individual who complained that it didn't speak in French or with a French accent when they were on the continent! Really??? Perhaps they wanted the cast of 'Allo Allo' to direct them. Good job they weren't in Romania or else Dracula would be expected to guide them!
Anyway, great bit of kit at a great price, what more could you ask?
