Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT review

 

Smartphones have made portable navigators largely obsolete, but this Garmin Advanced series PND makes nice with the enemy.

The Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT is an excellent GPS navigator with smart routing software and accurate maps. Lifetime map and traffic updates increase the value. Natural-language directions, real-time lane guidance, and always-on voice command help the driver...

As the Nuvi series gains more tricks, its settings menu has gotten bloated with options and categories.

The Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT is a strong performing navigator with loads of smart features that help reduce driver errors and distraction, but in a world filled to the brim with smartphone nav apps, most will never know its charms.

Garmin nüvi 2689LMT

 

The Garmin nüvi 2689LMT is simple to use, with a host of helpful features; the only time it falters is when using voice commands.

Clean interface. Bluetooth calling. Free lifetime traffic. Responsive touch screen.

Searching for businesses using voice commands often yields inaccurate results.

Traffic, Other Features, and Conclusions Free lifetime traffic is available with the GPS and you can choose to display it on the right side of the screen as you travel. When you start a trip, the nüvi 2689LMT will tell you if there are any delays on...

Overall very good product

 

Works well, life time updates are nice live traffic helped me avoid traffic jams. The only downside it froze on me a few times and the battery drains fast but overall this is a nice GPS.

Some issues.

 

It seems very highway addicted Example I tested it for my drive to the office . it gave me a route on the highway with toll and increasing arrival time compared to my usual route.. My usual route and the one my old GPS (the 2595) utilized was on town...

Good response

 

I'm very satisfied with good response of this navigation. However, the decrease of the battery early is a little disappointing.

Great GPS

 

I really like the GPS. The only thing I don't like is that you have to be very specific when finding a place on the voice command. Sometimes it doesn't recognize the place so you have to manuver around it which can be very difficult when in a hurry.
