The Guidance 3 premium navigation engine offers significant benefits including notably faster route calculations so you can get going much quicker. It provides a faster, more intuitive user interface as well as more accurate searches.

It also includes Garmin’s innovative Bird’s Eye junction view which gives an overhead perspective of the correct lane to be in when approaching complex junctions. This is particularly useful in areas that require multiple manoeuvres.

Other useful features include Automatic Orientation whereby Nuvi will adjust the display depending on whether it is in portrait or landscape position and the ability to ‘pinch and zoom’. Guidance 3 also offers 3D terrain, buildings and landmarks to show a realistic image of the road ahead.

Add Live Real-Time Information Via Smartphone Link

Nuvi 3590LMT is ‘Live Ready’ - via Garmin Smartphone Link- an android app which provides live services to the sat nav. Smartphone Link creates a seamless navigation experience between the Nuvi and your Android mobile phone to communicate and share data.

Among other functionalities, this lets you add live services to your sat nav such as 3D Traffic Live which provides real-time information to help you navigate in and around traffic problems. 3D Traffic Live updates every two minutes with 2000 messages including details of traffic incidents, road conditions and delays. There is 99% coverage of traffic flow data on all major motorways as well as A and B roads making it. 3D Traffic Live gives you the best all-round view of the traffic situation at any given moment - it is fast, reliable and accurate.

You can see traffic for yourself with PhotoLive traffic cameras

Your understanding of the traffic conditions is further enhanced by PhotoLive traffic cameras, which can be called up on demand for a real-time view of your route from the traffic cameras.

Smartphone Link also enhances Garmin’s standard safety camera alerts with Speedwatch data, which provides real-time updates for fixed, temporary and average speed cameras, mobile zones and red light cameras together with “crowd-sourced” mobile speed traps reported by Speedwatch customers.

Delivering content via your smartphone’s mobile data plan, Smartphone Link also provides live weather, parking and fuel prices.

Avoid Traffic Tie-Ups

To keep drivers moving, the Nuvi 3590LMT includes subscription-free 3D traffic for the lifetime of the product.

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 any delay.

Add our 3D Traffic Live via Smartphone Link for more detailed and extended traffic coverage updated every two minutes.

FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas.

Free Map Updates for Life

With Nuvi 3590LMT, you can drive reassured you’ve always got the most up to date maps, points of interest and navigation information on board. The very latest maps are available to download up to four times a year with no subscription or update fees.

Hands-Free for Safer Driving

Nuvi 3590LMT combines a responsive high-resolution 5-inch glass touchscreen with Garmin’s innovative voice-activated navigation so you can choose how you want to control it. Simply wake up the sat nav using your customised voice command and speak the menu options on the screen for totally touch-free navigation.

With built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can sync with your compatible mobile phone for hands-free phone calling and even access your phone book and call history via the sat nav - no need to look at, touch or even find your phone. Garmin’s SafeTexting even speaks your text messages, eliminating another risk of distraction.

PhotoReal Junction View shows every detail - even lampposts

Know the Lane Before It's Too Late

Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions. Nuvi 3590LMT’s Lane Assist with PhotoReal 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 and pylons. From a mile before the junction, the sat nav enters split screen mode to show your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre, with accurately reproduced road signs for confident navigation and reassurance you’re on track.

Go Beyond Navigation

Find Fuel-Efficient Routes

Garmin’s ecoRoute fuel-saver technology finds the most fuel-efficient route to a destination, helping drivers save money while being kinder on the environment. The innovative feature tracks fuel usage and calculates the cost of a journey as well as enabling accurate expense reporting.

Save even more money by knowing where to get the cheapest fuel by upgrading to Smartphone Link. You’ll be able to see fuel prices for yourself, how far away the petrol station is, and be directed there.

Smart Mount System

Nuvi 3590LMT is even more convenient to use. It has a “smart” mount, to provide a constant power source and it automatically powers on and off with the vehicle engine. An extra speaker in the mount provides a volume boost if you need it. When the sat nav is removed from the mount, Nuvi automatically marks your parked position and it finds the nearest parking to your location for the ultimate convenience.

    I can only give 3 stars as although I love the tablet-like look and feel of this unit it has caused some frustrations. Here are my three problems and the solutions I found.

    1. MAP UPDATING PROBLEM. I was unable to update the maps following the instructions. The solution was to download lifetimeupdater.exe and run that NOT to follow the instructions in the manual.

    2. LOCKED IN DEMO MODE. This is not obvious. But if you find that there is no GPS (red line through the bars), you get a message about being in demo mode (sometimes) when you power on and when you deselect GPS Simulator it won't turn off, then you may be locked in Demo mode. Solution: Select the loudspeaker icon on the home page to get to the audio page. Press the top right hand corner for about ten seconds and the developer mode will come on. Scroll down the menu to find Demo mode, select that and turn it off. My GPS immediately came back OK. You could probably do some damage in this mode if you poke about with other functions so take care.

    3. LOSS OF FAVOURITES. I saved a bunch of addresses to favourites which got lost when the maps were updated. Fair marks to Garmin support for coming back in 24hrs as below to show how to back them up.

    I'm tempted to send it back. but the alternative is £1,500 for an inbuilt satnav in the new car I'm getting which is crazy money or a TomTom where you seem to just get a different bunch of problems. The actual interface and screen quality on this unit is streets better than the inbuilt satnav I've had in my VW for the last few years and although the screen is smaller being so much sharper compensates, so I'll stick with it and hope these problems are behind me.

    After reading the reviews I wasn't going to buy this unit, until I saw some rave Dutch reviews and thought I'd take the chance. So glad I did. This is only my second Garmin, bought to replace my C510. The screen is large, bright and excellently detailed, clear and easy to read. The split screen works (well it does on the A2) showing exactly the junction layout and signs - so you can see the layout as you approach. Voice command is interesting, it works better after the latest patch and if you speak clearly it works well. I'm still learning about some of the features, but so far I'm very impressed.
    Be aware this device only has an FM traffic antenna and no capability for an external GPS antenna. Having a heated windscreen prevented the earlier C510 from working, however the 3590 copes with this and gives an exact location without the need for an external GPS antenna.

    This satnav must rank as one of the best money can buy. It's quick and easy to use, voice control works a treat (even with my Northeast accent) and the screen works like an iphone or ipad. The resolution is way better than lesser Garmins or any Tomtom models, and programming destination into favourites, even miles from anywhere in remote French villages, is easy peasy. The suction cup is great, but the optional beanbag dash mount is even better.

    However, it didn't work like this straight out of the box. Several features didn't work, notably some of the most important voice commands, even though the website told me everything from sytems to maps were the latest version. Fortunately I didn't believe them and got onto Garmin, who told be to reinstall maps. Sure enough the maps were out of dates and once a five hour download was complete everything came online.

    Five stars for the device, minus a star for having to mess around for half a day to get the thing working optimally. garmin should get on top of this.

    I went for this both on the strength of some of the reviews, and the free lifetime maps and traffic. I was being driven mad by my phone satnav (CoPilot live on a HTC one X) not picking up a signal for ages on start up. This device gets a lock almost instantaneously.

    However, the best feature of this device for me is the voice command system. It's so simple to use and (unusually) it's both accurate and effective. A simple vocabulary plus numbered lists make selecting what you want a doddle.
    I've also found I can drive and not use the separate (provided) mic which means one less cable .
    Routing can be a bit strange at times. On fastest routing it wanted to use a series of local lanes that I know wouldn't be faster than my normal route (and that my other systems suggest.

    I've not had any vibration issues, and the general look and feel of the interface is very simple - much more so than say the navman in my (>1000) Pioneer/ VW head unit in another car.

    My main gripes are:
    That the TMC receiver cable is huge and unsightly.
    That the TMC cable has a dedicated 12v cigarette lighter adapter - it would have been more versatile with a USB connector.
    Volume could be a bit louder on max when using the phone.
    If it had an FM or bluetooth transmitter to use the car speakers for the audio output it would be even better.
    The Garmin apps are expensive - generally £9 though if you want the 3g traffic data (as opposed to the included Radio TMC broadcasts) you have to pay another 19.99 per annum. This is a bit misleading and they should bundle it.

    Overall though these are minor issues, and I'd really recommend the unit; despite the price.
