With Lifetime maps, Real Directions for more natural instructions, speed camera alerts, Live capability, hands-free calls and much more, the nüvi 2497LM is an advanced sat nav designed to give you a safer, faster and stress-free journey.
Crisp, High Resolution Display
nüvi 2497LM has a 4.3" 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 2497LM arrives loaded with detailed maps of Europe. With free lifetime 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 2497LM makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, shops, 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.
Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras
nüvi 2497LM 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 safely and legally.
The Power Of Your Voice
nüvi 2497LM 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 2497LM comes with Garmin's unique Real Navigation. This includes Real Directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable 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
Sync your Bluetooth-enabled phone to nüvi 2497LM for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and speaker. Safely stow your phone in a glove compartment, pocket or purse and still make and take calls without moving your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road.
Smartphone Link Compatible
Smartphone Link is a free application for Android smartphones. It creates a seamless navigation experience between your compatible Garmin sat nav and your smartphone, enabling them to communicate and share data via Bluetooth. It enables your GPS to receive real time information such as weather, PhotoLive Traffic Cameras, weather and much more.
It also shares locations with your Smartphone so you can navigate that last mile to your final destination and back to find your parked car.
Comprehensive Driving Guidance You See and Hear
Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or junction with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help.
photoReal junction view realistically displays junctions and road changes along your route, including the surrounding landscape and road signs. Again, arrows indicate the proper lane to be in.
For complicated junctions, Bird's Eye junction view offers a detailed ariel picture of the road network, looking down as if from overhead.
More Information at a Glance
nüvi 2497LM keeps your driving map onscreen at all times and additional information appears alongside. For details simply touch the screen. As you drive your route, the 'Up Ahead' feature informs you of nearby services, including restaurants, petrol stations, hospitals and shops.
nüvi 2497LM displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street.
Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favourites to and from devices, and install free custom vehicles and voices.

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!
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.Read more ›
The 7 inch display is very clear and easy to use, and using the Garmin universal dash mount (which is great too) you can place it in just the optimum position for un-obstructive yet easy glancing viewing. Its powered by a thicj cable from the cigarette lighter socket that also doubles as the traffic warning news aerial, so thats a little messy to sort out, but soon got used to it, especially as the device works so well and you start to fall in love with it.
There is a little downside to it though, I found when in city centres and you approach very complex junctions, the car symbol can move a little too slowly and you think its pointing to one road when in fact it wants you on another, so I did miss a road or two, but that could be my error, but it soon re-calculates and gets you back on track again, in seconds. The other gripe was the traffic service, which did not warn of a major snarl up around a huge roundabout in Preston that was being 'improved', hah, the works had clearly been going on for weeks and the traffic was backed up all over the place (had two major roads and motorway junction to sort out there), and yet it was not aware and so did not avoid the area, we drove straight in to the chaos.
However, overall its a fantastic piece of kit and cannot recommend it highly enough. My only other experience of a SatNav by the way is the one built into the dash of my Honda Cr-V, which is very good, but this Garmin simply blows it away.
