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.

Disappointed

 

Bought the 2797LMT in May 2013, and used it once that year for one day to guide me in locating houses that I was looking to buy. Upon returning home I put the 2797LMT back in the its box and placed it in my chifferobe. This month, Aug. 2014, took the...

Nothing ...nothing at all

Never did work

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

Garmin nuvi 2797LMT

 

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...

The Garmin 2797 Awesome

 

I am old so the large screen is extremely nice. In previous reviews you will note that size matters so be thoughtful as to how it will look/fit in your vehicle. New technology is great. I like the "lane feature" which the nice young lady tells you what...

Big, clear screen does the trick.

 

This is my first Garmin, but I have been using TomTom for years. I travel all over the United States by car so I have lots of experience with GPS Navigation. Overall I like this Garmin unit. The screen is really big compared to my last one (5.5"). Lots...
