Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD review

 

The Nuvi 3597LMTHD continues to refine Garmin's brand of navigation with premium design and one of the most intuitive interfaces in the business.

The Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD boasts a premium design with a sharp 5-inch capacitive screen and a thin metal chassis. Voice command makes the already intuitive interface easier to use on the road. Search-based destination input and natural spoken...

The Smartphone Link feature doesn't really do anything aside from serving as a portal for additional paid services.

The Nuvi 3597LMTHD continues to refine Garmin's brand of navigation with premium design and one of the best interfaces in the business.

Garmin nüvi 3597LMTHD

 

Garmin has done it again with the nüvi 3597LMTHD, a high-end portable GPS device that continues to set the bar for the genre. The question is whether there's a market for pricey in-car navigation systems these days.

Magnetic mount. Glass capacitive display supports multi-touch. Improved voice prompts

Expensive. Screen shows reflections in sunlight. Traffic and exact location aren't always accurate enough

The Garmin nüvi 3597LMTHD ($379.99 direct) is the best automotive GPS navigation device you can buy today. While the market for standalone devices has stagnated and even contracted in recent years, there's still plenty of demand—especially at bargain...

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 nüvi 3597 LMTHD satnav review: Hands-on

 

The Garmin nüvi 3597 LMTHD satnav is the brand's latest flaghship GPS device, but what does it bring to the table?

Of course, the Garmin nüvi 3597 LMTHD is a premium unit, and unfortunately so is the price. Only confirmed US pricing of $380 is available so far, putting the equivalent UK price at around £240.

Garmin nuvi 3597LMT

 

A premium sat-nav with traffic updates

Lifetime maps ; Lifetime traffic ; Excellent voice control

Live services require smartphone connection ; RDS-TMC traffic only

The Garmin nuvi 3597LMT provides a lot of sat-nav features for the money, although the traffic updates are only RDS-TMC.

Excellent

 

The product was delivered quickly and in perfect condition. This is a great GPS that works perfectly. I would recommend this if you can afford the entry price. It has already received a map update. Voice command to initiate routing or other actions. It...

Price but you're getting top quality for it. Sometimes there is a bit of a lag in voice commands and action requested

Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD

 

Screen is razor sharp. Voice pronunciation is very accurate. I love the way it directs you to the proper lane when you need to make a specific exit. This is very helpful in busy cities like Chicago, NY, and other places I'd rather not visit. The HD...

None, other than the expensive price, but worth every penny
