Garmin Nuvi 295W


What do you get when you yank the phone parts out of the Garmin Nuvifone? The obvious answer is "just a regular Garmin Nuvi." However, that's not exactly the case, as the Garmin Nuvi 295W retains more than a few of its smartphone bits, including a...

The Garmin Nuvi 295W features crisply rendered maps and quick routing/rerouting of trips. Its text-to-speech feature speaks street names when giving directions. The unit's autocorrect function learns frequently typed words and helps with entering...

All of the Nuvi 295W's connected features require Wi-Fi connectivity, which we found finicky to connect. Screen resolution is a bit low for Web browsing. The unit lacks traffic data, highway lane guidance, and Bluetooth hands-free calling, all of which...

The Garmin Nuvi 295W is a solid point-to-point GPS navigator with a few neat tricks that on-foot navigators may appreciate, but its secondary camera and Wi-Fi-connected features just aren't very useful from behind the wheel.

Garmin nuvi 3760LMT


The Garmin nüvi 3760LMT, adds lifetime map updates to the nuvi 3760T, a low end unit in what is possibly Garmin's nicest line of navigators to date. But this is not an entry level unit; in addition to many of the goodies found on previous high-end...

Very thin ; Gorgeous, bright screen ; The loudest nuvi yet ; trafficTrends historical road speeds result in improved routing ; Lifetime map updates ; More streets labeled than on recent nuvis ; Improved junction view and lane assist coverage

trafficTrends can result in increased route calculation time ; Slightly weaker GPS receiver performance than other recent nuvi series ; Multi-destination routing needs improvement ; Disappointing Bluetooth performance ; Trip logs do not consistently...

Highly recommended — the 3700 series is the best nuvi line released to date and may be worth it for trafficTrends alone. Routing has been significantly improved with the addition of this historical road speed data. The fact that it learns your routing...

Garmin nuvi 295W review


Hands on with the Garmin nuvi 295W UPDATE: The nuvi 2×5 series has been officially discontinued. For current recommendations, see our auto GPS buyers guide. The Garmin nüvi 295W is the first nuvi to include WiFi, giving you Internet and email access on...

Email access via WiFi networks ; Small, pocket-sized ; Easy WiFi and email setup ; Powered mount ; Multi-destination routing ; Fully compatible with pedestrian and mass transit features of CityXplorer maps ; Tri-axial compass

Very short battery life ; Speaker is not loud enough ; 3.5” screen ; 2.5 mm headphone jack ; Very slow browser ; No traffic capabilities (not available as an add-on either)

As I said in the beginning, the nuvi 295W is a good choice for someone who would like email on the go, but isn’t ready to spring for a smartphone data plan. Were it not for the speaker and battery life (more deal killers than the weak browser, IMHO),...

Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD


With lifetime map and traffic updates, a whole set of route options and millions of POIs, the Nuvi 3597LMTHD stays ahead of the smartphone. The innovative magnetic mount combined with the sleek metallic body and the Bluetooth and smartphone...

The bright display is easy to see and the platform is intuitive. The Nuvi 3597LMTHD also comes with lifetime map and traffic updates

The battery life is not as good as the previous model, and this unit does not have a pedestrian mode

The Nuvi 3597LMTHD is the best car GPS unit on the market and provides a myriad of options not found on smartphone navigation apps.

Garmin Nuvi 3760LMT


This sophisticated navigation GPS unit offers much more than great looks. Noticeably lacking are voice recognition and 3D graphics, but the rest of the feature set is rock solid. The included lifetime map and traffic updates really will pay for...

The Garmin Nuvi 3760LMT's sleek design is both eye-catching and functional

This unit lacks voice recognition and 3D graphics

With lifetime traffic and map updates, this is a solid investment.

Garmin Nuvi 44LM


The Nuvi 44LM is a basic car GPS unit in the Essential series, but it still has a few of the advanced features to make it worthwhile. These advanced features combined with the lifetime map updates give the Nuvi 44LM a longevity that it would otherwise...

The Nuvi 44LM comes with lifetime map updates and includes both lane assistance and a speed-limit indicator

This GPS unit does not have not allow you to save specific routes and cannot predict your route based on your driving history

The Nuvi 44LM is a basic car GPS unit. It contains most essential features, along with a few advanced ones.
