The Best of Garmin’s Traffic Solutions
Keep moving with Garmin Digital Traffic – It’s fast, accurate and free².
Digital Traffic provides continuous and accurate updates on the super-fast digital network. It is twice as fast as some other sat navs: if there are queues ahead you’ll know about them. It will accurately pinpoint any incidents and delay times then give clear and simple directions for alternative routes. With Garmin Digital Traffic you’re always in control.
There are no ongoing subscriptions as it is a Lifetime service – simply use out of the box – for free.
On the nüvi 2598LMT-D, traffic alerts appear to the side of your map, so your driving map remains onscreen. Traffic messages are spoken, too so you’re not distracted from the road. With voice recognition (ASR) on this model, Garmin Traffic will respond to spoken requests. You get 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.
Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2598LMT-D to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.
Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras
nüvi 2598LMT-D contains Garmin’s 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 2598LMT-D 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 2598LMT-D comes with Garmin’s 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 2598LMT-D 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 smartphones³. 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 more4. 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 aerial picture of the road network, looking down as if from overhead.
More Information at a Glance
nüvi 2598LMT-D keeps your driving map onscreen at all times and additional information appears alongside. For details, simply ask or touch the screen. As you drive your route, the ‘Up Ahead’ feature constantly informs you of nearby services, including restaurants, petrol stations, hospitals and stores.
nüvi 2598LMT-D displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street.

We decided to buy a new sat nav largely because it was going to cost a fair bit to update the maps which made this model, with its lifetime updates and useful features which weren't available when we bought our last sat nav (also a Garmin) five or six years back, an attractive proposition. We also wanted to have all the European maps on the device and not have to fiddle around adding and removing maps because of capacity issues. We didn't buy it from Amazon because it was cheaper at a well-known car accessory supplier.
Set up was quite simple although downloading map updates took an age but this is more to do with our appallingly slow broadband connection than with Garmin. We tested it out on a few UK journeys that we are very familiar with to ensure it was working satisfactorily before we headed off to Europe on holiday. I have to say it is much better than our old satnav (which was a highly recommended one at the time of purchase). Routing was quick and delivered the appropriate route. We were delighted to find that if you divert from the route there was a much quicker re-calculation than the old machine, and without the 're-calculating, recalculating' chant that used to drive us mad. We also noticed how much better directions were - useful stuff like 'turn left at the traffic lights'. There is also a distinct improvement in instructions compared to our old model which seemed to notify turns far too early sometimes leading us astray and invoking the 're-calculating, re-calculating' chant.Read more ›
1) In planning the trip I tried to download Garmin Basecamp to my computer but this failed repeatedly.
2) Voice-over commands were frequently incomprehensible. In France she neither spoke with a French accent nor an anglicised phonetic rendering she just got the names wrong. This did not matter too much because :
3)She gave the street names you were turning into . Not very useful because you usually do not know the name of the street anyway so it does not provide a check. It would have been better to give the direction stated on signpost..
4)S lightly unreliable on roundabouts. Method was to tell you to take a numbered turn off eg 'take the third turning off' but would fail to include one of the minor turnings. Great care was needed
5) Once directed to a dead end. On the other hand once directed on rutted track through graveyard which was just fine!
6) Trip -planner quite hard to use because you could not enter where you want the journey to end only intermediate points. What you have to do is go to 'Edit journey' then 'optimise route' then 'Done' then 'Save journey'. Odd glitch as it is such an obvious one.
7) You have to provide an address for the place you are going to. You must enter one of the addresses provided and it might be some way from where you want to go. Perhaps this is the most annoying thing about the device.
By and large an excellent device and I would recommend it. Don't bother with the travel pack if you are offered it.It comes with a case which does not fit.
