Garmin Nuvi 2797LMT

 

The 7-inch screen, while bold and crisp, can be difficult to mount without interfering with your line of sight, and the screen itself is plastic and less responsive than the more advanced glass screens. However, the Garmin Nuvi 2797LMT compensates for...

The large and high-quality display is both easy to see and easy to read. Garmin's landmark guidance program makes it easy for you to follow difficult directions and the ability to save multiples routes makes it easier to pull up common destinations

The Garmin Nuvi 2797LMT uses a plastic, resistive LCD screen that does not support multitouch or scrolling through menus

The Garmin Nuvi 2797LMT contains several advanced features that give you a more complete experience, but the lack of a more responsive touchscreen is a significant flaw.

Early Death Battery Not Covered by Warranty

 

After less than 6 months, the internal lithium-polymer battery (part # 361-00066-00) in my Garmin 2797 LMT died. Garmin's 12 month Limited Warranty is lame and excludes "consumable parts, such as batteries", which is poor for a unit that costs $250. I...

Overall, quite a good GPS device

Poor warranty terms and lack of spares on Garmin's website

Larger screen size is easy to read. Map update works great. Hands free voice activation is well worth having

Larger size might block some of your view if used in a smaller vehicle. This thing is the size of a small tablet

Exceeds expectations!

 

WoW! Love the 7'' display! Make sure you have the space on your dash if you plan on mounting it there. It was almost too big for my dashboard. It comes with window mount, but did not want to use that way. I really like the other features as well. The...

Screen size is large but AWESOME!

 

I upgraded from a Magellan to this GPS, going from a 3" screen to this model and was concerned it may be too large. Doubt I'd ever go to a smaller screen again. Love this GPS. Very user friendly.This product has... Large/easy to see screen, Easy menus,...

Out of the box and ready to go. Clear directions, great graphics

The initial download to recieve future FREE lifetime updates took a few hours
