Review: The Garmin Nuvi 2589 keeps it simple

 

The Garmin Nuvi 2589 LMT certainly has a premium feel to it, with a slender design and a ball socket screen mount that folds away into quite a compact shape when not in use. Many screen mounts protrude a lot from the windscreen which can be a big...

Slimline design combined with a great screen mount and the addition of Foursquare integration make this an impressive offering from Garmin

The voice recognition doesn't always work and the reflective screen can be a pain when driving under the Australian sun

Garmin's updated premium Nuvi GPS keeps things simple, and that's a big plus, but its lack of real headline features only makes it a middle ground option for a GPS in 2014.

Works great!

 

The Garmin has a new voice and a slightly different - and more helpful - way of giving directions. I love that it now tells you which lanes to be in on the freeway as Los Angeles interchanges can be a bit tricky when there's traffic.
