Garmin nuvi 3590LMT Review


If you already own one of Garmin's higher-end nuvi models purchased within the last 2 years, the 3590 LMT probably isn't compelling enough to warrant upgrading. If you don't already have a GPS, or are looking to upgrade an older/lower-end model, the...

Good, But Not A Whole Lot Different Than Previous Models

Garmin nuvi 3590LMT review


The Garmin nüvi 3590LMT is the company's new top of the line auto navigation unit. As part of their Prestige series, this model basically offers the same feature set as the nuvi 3490LMT, but with a larger 5″ screen. Which means you get a bevy of...

5″ capacitive multi-touch screen ; Strong customization options ; Powered mount ; Exit services ; Lifetime map updates included ; Lifetime traffic (ad free) ; HD traffic reception seems to have improved since initially released on the 3490LMT ; POIs...

Not as thin as the nuvi 3490LMT ; Bluetooth sound quality not as good as on the nuvi 2×95 series; slow to connect

Recommended. HD traffic reception seems to have been improved since it was initially released on the nuvi 3490LMT. Voice command performance seems better than on the 3490LMT as well. The only downside is that the 3590LMT is a little disappointing in...

The Garmin Nuvi 3590LMT offers several unique features and great functions, making it the best navigation GPS available. The clear and fluid screen is as functional as a smartphone, but you'll never have to worry about high data usage or overheating...

The dual-view display shows a 3D overhead map next to a graphic display of the upcoming turn

Traffic notifications are based on FM transmissions, so areas with weak FM coverage will not display heavy traffic

Great GPS choice.


If you want/need the best GPS out there, this is it. Surprisingly, the magnetic mount is very much worth it. It works horizontal or vertical, depending on your personal taste.

Accurate and fast routing. Loud directions and very clear screen. Voice activated searching. Magnetic mount is excellent to remove unit when parked. It senses the power turning off from the cord to trigger a system standby mode. Larger screen is very...

Price is high but you are getting a top notch GPS. No other negatives period

Cable not standard


Didn't have much to complain about this GPS until one day the battery went dead. It lost all saved places, and you can't use it until you hook it back up to your computer and unlock the maps.... And oh yea, if you dont keep the ORIGINAL cable that came...

Clean elegant, easy to read

Not a standard USB cable

Excellent Choice


I still say excellent choice even though I am giving this unit away to my mother after such a short time. I should have gone with the above-mentioned Garmin 3597. Am actually ordering that as I type this. Again take note I have nothing negative about...

Larger, sharper screen is really nice. Very quick responses to route and on rerouting. Very user friendly menu layout. Nice and loud as one could ask for in a GPS. Compact yet very secure windshield mount; it will stay in the position you set. A very...

Price is a bit high, but be assured you're getting top notch GPS for that price. Newer unit 3597 is almost same price and includes magnetic quick mounting. 0 eggs reduced for any of this

Best GPS in the market


I purchased this because my old Nuvi 350 had aged gracefully and because I recently went on a road trip through California and wanted a new GPS for that and beyond. Driving through L.A. maze of freeways proved exceptionally easy but traffic info was...

Near Perfect


I have owner a couple Garmin NAV's over the years as well as a TomTom. This unit by far is the best NAv I have ever owned. It is worth every penny

I only wish it had an option to choise a truck as a travel pattern option

GREAT Product!! A MUST have!!!


I purchased this item for my trip to Orlando, Florida because the maps on my older version are outdated. I was driving around Orlando like a resident. The search capability is just phenomenal. On our return trip, there was heavy delays on the I95. The...
