Garmin nuvi 2589LMT Review


The Garmin nuvi 2589LMT is loaded with all the features you'll need in a navigation GPS. It gives you all of the essential features, along with a capacitive touchscreen and voice-activated navigation. Its many navigational capabilities and ease of use...

It has voice recognition software, an extremely practical and safety-conscious feature in a car GPS.

It has a lower screen resolution than other top options.

The Garmin nuvi 2589LMT is preloaded with numerous premium features, making it one of the best navigation GPS units you can buy.

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.
