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.

Large screen, good app features

Unit froze up after 30 days of use. Unit slowly started loosing memory. Apps and map would not load finally froze up and would not even turn off

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

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...

Go Big or Go Home

 

This thing has a nice, massive display which is why I bought it! I replaced a Garmin 1300 which is puny in comparison. I was considering Garmin's top of the line model (3597) but did a little "showrooming" at a box retailer and decided the extra cost...

Big display! Upgraded software

Might be too large for some

This is the best GPS I've ever had. Sooooo many useful features.

Easy to use

Needs more detailed graphics or HD

Garmin nüvi® 2797LMT

 

I like the size and the new direction descriptions. And it isn't always saying "Re-Calculating" All the features are nice except the voice command feature. I've tried to give an address verbally and it never gets it right. Other than that its great

New and improved features

voice commands don't work

This GPS product is outstanding!

The 7 inch screen is easy to see for the driver, as well as for others in the car. The directions are always clear and detailed-it's as if the voice has ESP!!! All the functions are easy to use and the the helpful way stop icons keep me current along...
