Garmin 2589LM review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin 2589LM is a mid-range sat nav with a 5-inch screen, lifetime map updates and voice recognition, allowing you to tell it where you want to go without having to take your hands off the wheel. It's no longer at the cutting-edge of Garmin sat...

Voice command control works well for me, including to unprogrammed destinations As the whole point is to not get driving licence points, this is good. 5 inch screen plenty big enough. Blue to phone also then works by voice command.

Had one before, so this was an update

 

We bought this sar nav as we are pleased with the older version, but the new one comes with free map updates and more software links. Somne of pronounciations still have us in fits of laughter as we live in Wales!

Gets you there

 

Does what it's supposed too, always had TomTom so took a little getting used to, would be nice to be able to pick fastest or fuel efficient route at start of each journey rather than being set as preferred route for all trips

Excellent value replaces old Tomtom. Takes a while to adapt to new instructions and set up etc.. Very clear maps and voice controls.
