Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

A complete navigation experience for a safer, faster and stress-free journey
- 5.0" high resolution dual-orientation display
- Free lifetime² traffic alerts
- Detailed maps of Europe with free – lifetime¹ updates
- Garmin Real Directions with Garmin Real Voice
- Voice-activated navigation, Bluetooth and Smartphone Link compatible


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 and 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.


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 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 2597LMT 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 ariel picture of the road network, looking down as if from overhead.
